    need some advice

    im wondering if my work out plan is giving me to much rest. also i am on a cycle.

    monday-chest tri's and shoulders


    friday-back and bi's

    abs everyday and sat. i do some biceps and more ab work. is that to much rest? also during my workout sometimes on the 2nd and third set i usually cant complete every rep. say im doing flat bench with dumbells on number 8 its tough and 9 im givin it all i have and usually can only get it about half way up. and on the third set its the same but i still complete all 10 even though i can only go half way up. do i need to move down in weights or just keep doin all i can untill i get stronger.

    For strength training you don't want to go to failure. You should be doing something in the range of 5x5. Lower the weight down and start building it back up.

    Are you varying your exercises? Hitting your muscle at a different angle might be the answer. I did pullovers this week in my chest session and they felt GOOOOOOD!!!!
