It's so fucking frustrating. I started SS a year ago, and did it for 3 months or so, before a knee injury and school forced me to take a break. Progress was something like:
S: 85 -> 225
D: 135 -> 235
B: 75 -> 150
P: 65 -> 115
BW: 141 -> 178 at 5'8
I failed 155 3 times, then reset. I then failed 150 a couple times, and reset again, only to fail at 150. I then took a huge break, and started up again in june. My lifts right now:
D: 225 (couldn't deadlift at school gym until about a week ago)
BW: 158 at 5'8
I just failed 155 3 times again. 150 was fairly easy, and I got 155 for 5,4,3. The next two workouts were 3, 3, 2. Bench just feels awful for me.
I don't have a video of form (though I will try to get one), but I believe it's decent. I arch my back, retract shoulderblades, take a deep breath, look at a point on the ceiling, try to stay tight by pushing with my feet. My bench just dies once it hits this weight, and its pathetic when my press is 40 pounds away from my bench.
What should I do now? I haven't been microloading bench, since this weight in my mind was too low for that, but I guess i'm going to have to now. Is there anything else I can do to get bench moving? It feels ridiculous to make absolutely no progress, and have to reset this weight for probably the 4th time in a year.
