How do I improve them I have never seemed to be able to bench press well maybe it's poor technique but even at my best 135 lbs was a struggle. Now with where I am on a calorie deficit and cutting/losing weight in general since I am overweight and need to get in shape. What is the best way to improve these lifts? Currently I can do 3 sets of 10 Incline Dumbell Bench Press with 20 Pounds in each arm. By the 3rd set the last few reps get very hard to get up. I use a chest press machine and can do 55 pounds for 3 sets of 10. If I up the weight the number of reps I can do to failure drop off significantly. 70 pounds drops for like 3 sets of 6 reps for example and getting the 6th rep on the 2nd and 3rd set are pretty difficult and yesterday I was unable to do more then 4 on the 3rd set at 70 pounds on the Chest Press. I usually do my chest press exercises first so I have the most energy as these results get worse when I do flys, rows, rear delt flys etc (other exercises I do on chest/back day) first. So what do you recommend to increase these lifts?
