Default Weight Lifting

I have currently been lifting the same weight on incline dumbbell press for about a month. I can't fire why some days i struggle to lift the weight and other days its fairly easy. If any one has any enlightening information on this i would be appreciative.

It could be a number of things. Some days you may have more energy than others (due to calorie intake, work load, stress, sleep, etc). Some days you may just be pumped up and ready to go. Are you listening to music? Believe it or not, the type of music can make a difference.

Where do you workout? Do you have access to a barbell and plate weights? If so, I can tell you how I increased my bench.

I agree with Mike's comments - there are so many factors that can effect your workout. One other thing to look at is your pre-workout nutrition. I find that I have a better workout if I have some carbs and some caffeine about 30 min before hand - usually a banana and a coffee. Experiment and find what works best for you.
