aight now i honestly don twant to just tell you a workout plan to do because im not the greates on that, bu im sure its someone else who could give you something good.

but my 2 cents is to try a 5x5 or try ramped sets for a little minute. sort of like a pyramid. and all you doing ALL of your compound exersices?

Rather than take a week off, which seems counterproductive to me, I would drop the weight to something you did a couple weeks ago.

ie.
Week X 135
Week Y 145
Week Z 155-fail

Go back to Week X's weight, then next week add a small increment to that, etc. If you need to, you can go back even further to a lighter weight. The key is to go back to a weight you can handle relatively comfortably and add small increments to it (5lbs or less total)

I'll try a 5x5 ramped for my bench. I'm doing the three main compunds-bench, deads and squats. Ive got no problem with those, its just the bench where I've plateaued.

The idea is that you're retracing your progression, except that this time you've got the benefit of additional workouts and heavier weights, so it should be easier to get past that hump.

The way I think of it is this: You're trying to jump across a gap and every week it gets bigger. Each week you start your run at the same spot and make the jump. Now you can't make the jump, so you decrease the gap and start back a step further than normal, getting a little more speed before hitting the gap. You're jumping a gap you could already jump, except now you're able to run faster before hitting it.


It's a bit fucked up, but if you think about it this way it is easier to picture what you're actually doing. It makes sense to me LOL

ok, I understand the decreasing weight, but how many reps and sets do you recommend? and about how much from what I'm pleateaued at should I take off?
