Currently I weigh 178 lbs. I have be lifting weekly two days a week for the past 6 months..gradually adjusting my diet and schedule. I started out with SS, but had multiple set backs..so I am doing it slow this time.
My squats and deadlifts are ~ 300x5, but I can only do 155x5 for my bench press and ~105x5 for overhead press. Some of the guys in the gym cant even do 200x5 on squats and deadlifts, but can a lot of them can lift much more on bench press compared to me, at similar bodyweights.
I wonder if I should stop increasing the weight on my squats and deadlifts, and start pushing more on my bench press. I am sure I can increase more on my squats and deadlifts, but both my bench press and overhead has been stagnating. I have been stuck at the same weight for the past 3 weeks.
I wonder if its time to stop increasing on my deadlifts/squats and incorporate more upperbody exercises. I am ok with having a 300 squat and deadlift, but want a better upper body.
As far as diet goes I take ~160 gms of protein primarily from chicken/brown rice. I dont take supplements, because of cost. I sleep around 8 hours a day.
