    If my small anecdotal experience means anything, this is completely true.

    I have a borderline-pathetic squat for my weight and the amount of time I've been lifting, while my deadlift is not bad...

    Believe it or not, I tend to have the opposite problem. I've been improving my form lately, but I'm one of those guys who tends to T-Grip it. Can't imagine I've already gone too far the other way.

    Yeah, I think someone who can bench 345 in only two months of actual training is a prodigy.

    You could do more combine work and make sure that your form is strict, so that each shoulder is performing an approximately equal workload.

    You can add weight to them. For pullups, you can strap a plate to a belt with a chain. You can hold a dumbbell between your feet with dips. You can put weight on your back with push ups.

    No incident that you could ascribe a potential injury to?

    If it is actually causing you substantial pain instead of merely being noticeable, then I think you should go get it checked out.

    I gained a lot of chest development and strength benching 3x a week. Also, as others have said, you might want to try alternating sets of bench with rows and/or pullups. The lat pump assists the...

    You should work on building a substantial base of strength and musculature before thinking about cutting down. At your height and BF%, 196 lbs gives you a pretty low level of musculature. However, it...

    Yeah, you don't need to be that slow coming back to your starting position.

    Chest press glides up a little and takes some of the motion away from elbow extension, so the end point of the bench...

    I too get that clicking sound with rear delt flys, so I never do them. Not worth risking a shoulder injury in my opinion. I do have decent rear delts though. Probaby from rows, pullups, and deadlifts.

    You could also train with the pulldown machine for a while, perhaps after your assisted pullups.

    Sudden Bicep Activation from Bench?

    Improving my bench has been my primary goal in the gym this year. I've been doing it anywhere from one to three times a week, consistently this whole year, with only one week-long break. The rest of...

    If you went from chest all the way up, I would feel very good about that. I am 23 and only just now got a 300 pound bench. I am a little taller than you, but also quite a bit heavier.

    Good job OP!
