Hello. Right now my goal for bench press it to put up 300 by the end of the summer. Right now I am benching 245 (but I can get 250 about halfway). This is up 40 pounds in just 4 months, and 20 pounds in the last month. So I have been seeing some pretty good jumps. Anyway, I was wondering whether or not doing push ups would help out with increasing my max any. Also, are there any other simple excersises I can do to help my max increase? The only set of dumbells I have are 10 pounds, and this was from a while ago, so I am pretty limitied to what I can do. Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
