Got any good advice to increase it beside the bench before i prepare 150 lbs. workload.
I used to be a mini-bodybuilder back then. What I would do to prepare myself to be able to do extreme weights are to do two things. One, I stick to a routine where I gradually build the number of weights from what you normally lift and go toward to heavier ones (not too fast or else you'll strain your muscles and injure them) Two, determine how many times a week ( I do two or three) do 2 sets of 6 reps of near heavy ones. It's combination of both. Allow time to let the group of muslces rest. Eat a lot of protein. It did the trick for me back then. Good luck to you.
Do some readings, nowadays they may have better techniques.
