You're just destroying it! And BTW, about the guy who told you that you should be lifting more with deads and squats than bench press - it's different for everyone. In general, yeah, most people can dead and squat more than they can bench. But you should be pushing what feels good and effective for you, don't worry about what people do "in general." If 50kg feels good and like a solid expenditure of effort all around, then by all means keep push/pull/squatting 50kg. I have a hunch that you'll start to see those numbers separating out a little bit more as you keep on training, though ;)

thank you so much! :D
by the way, before this month i was training trying to lift dl and squat as much i was lifting with bench, but then i saw that was destroying the aim i wanted to reach. so i kept down with bench and go up with dl and squat, since these 2 exercises work all the body strength.
hope to reach 70 kg dl for the end february beginning march

thank you :D

i am kinda stressed about that bench press that wont grow. when i go over 40kg is hard for me to keep a clean balanced lift.
and i am 180cm x 85kg that´s somehow a pathetic lift

I think bench press is so difficult, and, at least for me, the most difficult lift to get perfect form with. Keep at it, and keep varying the way you're lifting to make sure you're well rounded. Changing grip (for instance, one day wide grip, one day close grip) can help you break through plateaus. Trying different assistance work (dumbbell press, floor press, one arm press, pullovers, flies, etc) can be really helpful too. I've found (and heard the sentiment around) that incline bench doesn't do a TON to help out your flat press. If you feel nervous about the weight and don't have a spotter, drag a bench over and bench in the squat rack with the safetys right at your chest level to keep you from getting pinned too bad if you just can't push it up. Strong tricep accessory work is vital to a strong bench press, in my opinion.
Upper back pulling like face pulls are a good idea to mix in with your bench, as well, if you're interested in push/pull supersets :)
Don't worry, you're liftin big, keep at it and you'll get wherever you want to be!!

thanks for your encouragement and for the tips :D
i thought maybe i should not lift on progression with bench press so often. instead of 6x5 til my goal weight i would make a simple 5x5 with a static weight, and once a week when i want to add 2,5 kg more i lift with progression sets. what do you think.?
for example tomorrow i would make 5x5x40kg and next week 5x30; 5x32.5; 5x35; 5x37.5; 5x40; 5x42.5 in one session.
sorry for my bad english, sometimes i dont know how to translate certain right definitions

Heck yeah, that looks good! I think shooting for increasing your max set by 2.5kg every week is a very achievable goal, and will allow you to progress at a comfortable rate. Also, your english is just fine, I never have trouble understanding you :)

P.S. I'm with you in this quest for a big bench. We'll both get it!
