    ... it seems like Im starting to plateau on my bench press.
    My max is currently 205
    mondays lift consist of
    135x10
    145x10
    155x10
    ... all done flat

    wensdays lift...
    105x10
    115x10
    125x10
    ... done on a very steep incline

    fridays lift
    165x5
    170x5
    175x5
    ...done on a flat bench


    It seems like my max is just staying the same. I usually try to step up my weight 5 pounds every two weeks, and now Im kinda stuck here here. It leaves me semi sore in the morning but nothing much. The lifts are the right weight, Im usually struggling with the last 2-3 reps of each set. My "routine" works for my power clean (190) and squat (325) farely well. Im 17, 225, and 5'11"-6', and not currently taking any supplements. Any Tips or advice?

    :)

    all your lifts are high reps and high sets....increase the weight and do 5x5 or 4x3 for awhile.
