Body Specs: Height: 5'11' Weight: 178 lbs. I don't hate benching because I don't like working my pectorals; I dislike it rather, because it's the cliche status quo exercise that proves how strong someone is. I usually bench press with dumbbells, but I switch every few months back to the barbell. My superset dumbbell routine is Flat Bench: 80 lbs. each hand (3 sets of 8 reps) + 35 lbs. Super set. Incline Bench: 65 lbs. each hand (3 sets of 7) + 40 lbs. Super set. Pec Flies: 55 lbs. each hand ( 3 sets of 8) + 35 lbs Super set. When I make the switch to the barbell I'm just God awful. I usually bench 175lbs. for (3 sets of 8) Benching is my weak spot, and I'm just naturally bad at it. HOWEVER, I would rival most in my strong spots which are Legs, Biceps, and Abs. Leg Routine: Leg Press: 800 lbs. (6 sets of 8 - 12 reps) Squats: 335 lbs. (3 sets of 6) + Superset of 225 lbs. of 10 reps Front Squat: 145 lbs. (3 sets of 10) Quad Extensions: 70 lbs. (3 sets of any many as I can do) Bicep Routine: Alternate Curl: 55 lbs. (3 sets of 7) Hammer Curl: 50 lbs. (3 sets of 6) Declined Curl: 35 lbs. (3 sets of 6) Reverse Curl E-Z Bar: 75 lbs. (3 sets of 6) 21's with Dumbells: 25 lbs. each hand for 3 sets. So everyone has their strong points and weak points. I just hate always being asked "So, how much do you bench?" As benching is my weak point, but it's a work in progress, and just so you know. I always use clean form and good range of motion, otherwise I lower the weights.
