Well, all i can say is:
if you didn't feel that workout, either you are not using enough intensity/weight to train with in order to reach failure by 8 reps or you are letting momentum take over and throwing the weight.

Either way you are cheating yourself in your search for new muscle growth...
and by the way `
you have to eat to grow. that's another huge factor in the gain game.

I see people everyday that look exactly the same as they did 5yrs ago.
Feel the muscle work. Really concentrate and watch yourself. Are you hitting as hard as you can? Do you need the assistance of a spotter by the time you reach 5 or 6? Keep strict form and really work for it.
That's how you get the mass you are seeking.

You can use the uprights for your bench. Just dont go to failure and try to get someone down to spot you. I use the uprights and have no spotter, so Ill just stop squatting when I know I will the next 1 or 2 reps.
