I dont necessarily have a goal of how much I want to Bench, Squat or Deadlift at the time. I do however, want to keep increasing my numbers. Cause I know I wont get bigger or stronger unless I keep adding weight.

Thanks BendtheBar, I started out Benching with a Wide Grip. I felt if I go with a wide grip I'll work my outter pectorals more to give me a more wide chest and possibly expand my rib cage so my chest is huge! One of my goals is to have a big chest. While I see some bodybuilders with shoulders and arms that over power their chest. Mark Ripptoe says guys who use a wide grip can bench a little more weight and its not an "honest" bench... Last friday I decided to go with a standard, slightly wider than shoulder width grip and could feel more of it in my triceps. Maybe, as a beginner I should go with a standard grip? I'll check out those articles tomorrow...
