385lbs x 6-8 reps vs. 125lb'ers(as big as they go where I am) x 10-12 reps

I only do this whenever there isn't any tractor tires to flip around though!

Dumbell incline is my weakest workout. It kills my shoulder!!!
Bench is 4 sets of 10 at 225. Dumbell incline is 3 sets of 10 with 60
I suck at incline

Yup, your strength has always impressed me.

It sucks because I pulled my hamstring deadlifting this last Saturday and now I will be out for a few weeks.
It popped like a rubber band with 485lbs on the 5th rep(glad I didn't go for #6 or it might have been much worse).
I can barely walk now.

I usually do 225 for 6-8 on the incline bench. I rarely do dumbbells but do 85 to 90 when I do those. Here lately those numbers are fresh off of a 3 to 4 mile run. Crazy I know but that is just how I like to workout of late.

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!

I don't ever do flat bench barbell.

Bench I'll do the 80's, 85's, then 90's, I try 10 reps per weight but I'm usually only getting 8 or so on the last set.

Incline is 60, 65, 70's with the same results. I hate incline.

This is after being back in the gym for a month after not going for a few months.

I was just trying to figure out how disproportionate my incline numbers are to my flat bench. They're both very low.

I have never been good at flat bench. I'm a 275x6 kinda guy.

Incline dumbells 120s for 6-8 reps.

Yea, I've heard, but I sure hope not!
I am going back into the gym today and already trying to self rehab it a bit on my own.
I took off the last 3 days(longest in 2 years) and feel like I'm just withering away now.

I think I am going to cut way down on the heavy deadlifts for quite a while, as the results aren't worth the risks involved in my book.

Tell me about it. I think I missed 4 days last month, and I haven't gone in a week now. I fucked up my back last tuesday and it's still sore. I'm hoping monday will be fine to go back. I guess that's what I get for not strectching before working out.

Only do flat bench with spotters I trust or smith machine at 3x6x275.
Normally just use dumbbells . . . 3x8x125s flat & 3x8x110s incline

my regards

Weird, the club I work out at has only one flat and incline bench and they never get used. Everyone there always crowds around the dumbell racks. I've never had to wait to do a set on either bench in the 2 years I've been a member.
On a good day I'll do 3 sets of 225X10X8X6 and one set at 185 as many reps as possible. Incline I'll do 3 sets of 185X10X8X6 and one set of 135 as many reps as possible. Probably get into incline dumbell in the next few months.

I haven't pushed up a barbell in over a year now, it sucks not having a trusted spotter. I usually stick to the Hammer Strength incline/decline, and all three angles for cable flyes.
