    How should i confuse my chest muscles?

    My bench is now a max of 170. I started off by doing a 5 rep 3 set bench, incline workout which got me pretty far. Then i stalled, and started the bench like an animal workout, which is a pyramid style. It starts with 6 reps at a light weight then it goes all the way down to 1 while increasing the weight. I stalled out of that too and here I am at 170 lbs.

    Any ideas what I should do next?

    I think i already have my excersises figured out, im gonna do flat bench, incline, dips and pec dec flys. Its just the rep range/ set range i need help on.

    Please, any criticism is welcome.

    switch to db's for a while, and throw in some dips. also try close grib bench press and reverse grip. be carefull w/ the reverse grip though cuz it can be hard to hold.

    confuse your chest muscles?

    simple

    tell them to find the definite integral with respect to x of the function F(x)=(1/(2x^2))(sinx) from 0 to 30. Unles you're really advanced, they should be thoroughly confused

    Tell it a riddle, or better yet try doing some crazy drop sets, I used to put 6 -10lbs plates on each side of a barbell, do 7 sets, dropping 1 10 plate from each side every set with no rest, I would get stuck under the empty bar by the end...

    Cable Crossovers with a superset pushup would probably be a good one for you to add in order to switch things up a bit. Try it out. 4 Sets, 8-12 reps on the crossovers and then 12-20 reps on the pushup supersets.
    I'd rather be dead then average.
