Yes, I'm working towards heavier weights. My shoulders (rotator cuffs) are what's really holding back my bench weights right now.

I'm also working my dead's up too. I had a pretty bad lower back injury (dr said I might have slipped a disc). I'm finally getting to the point where I can push on that lift again.

The nagging shoulder and lower back injury are what prompted me to start working out again. I'm finally getting some progress with the dead lifts. I tweaked my shoulder again last Saturday so I did legs Monday and put an hour on the elliptical last night.

When you say 4x8 135 do you mean you do 4 sets of 8 reps at 135 pounds or is that the weight you end up at for the final set?

You should get some variation in there to push yourself. Otherwise you're just spinning your wheels, partna.
All 4 sets at the same weight. With the exception of incline bench, I set a weight that makes me struggle to get all the reps done in a set and fail on the last rep of the last set. I move up in weight when I can nail all the reps across all the sets.
