    You are doing hypertrophy.

    Go to the workout programs forum and read the "size vs. strength" sticky thread.

    The last 2 estimates you asked for were over 20% and that was less than a month ago.

    So yes, it's normal. Still over 20% IMO

    Alcohol is technically a poison. There is no safe dose - but small amounts will cause so little harm you won't notice it. But let's not pretend (BTW, I'm aiming to have a beer this evening).

    How you spread it out through the day isn't going to make any difference. If you have 2 meals, have half at each. A single dose isn't going hurt anything.

    No, they don't affect your bench press - so if your goal is all about improving bench then most of what you do should be benching.

    However, I would say that squat and dead have more of an impact...

    A lot of people put more effort into their bench that other lifts - so it is further down the road and probably needs other lifts to catch up.

    What are your other lifts?
