Still struggling with two lifts.
I'm a little over 3 months in my starting strength 5x5 routine (Reg Park's) and it seems all my other lifts are going up but, my Bench and Shoulder Presses are still staying the same. I know I made a similar post about this, but it seems like I should of seen some increases by now?
I don't know if its my progression, flaw in my form, mental issue, need to gain weight, or not pushing myself enough. Or maybe the problem is I don't have a goal of how much weight I want to aim for.
I guess its not a huge issue where I'm loosing sleep over it, I just don't understand why I'm not improving on those two lifts. Still, after 3 months.
This is what my Bench sets look like... (In Pounds)
1 set of 10 reps w/ bar (Warm-Up)
Sometimes I might throw in a extra set and add 5-10lbs or deload and do higher reps
1x5x80 (Push Press)
Any advice or opinions are welcome.
