Plateaus, sticking points...whatever you want to called a prolonged stall.

I lifted from '86 to '90 without a bench stall, then entered the military. Picked up with serious lifting again in 1996 and moved up in bench for several years without stalling. So it took me about 5-6 years to hit a bench plateau.

In 2008 I tore my left shoulder lifting a barrel at work and had to start benching from scratch. I hit a stall in mid-2009 around a 350-360 bench and that lasted for nearly 2 years. Heavy benching just left me with too many strains. Thankfully I found the Sling Shot.
