Your strings are too heavy for you strength.

If not that, then your action is too low. I have problems bending with low action. I actually raise mine pretty high.

heavys being .012


Bending gets physically harder with higher gauge strings. You might wanna train your muscles a bit, or go back to a lower guage.

try lowering a tuning, then just once it gets easier, move the tuning up. I actually find it eaiser to bend with low action.

Use two fingers to bend. I couldn't do it on 12s any other way. That's why I use 9's
I pick up my guitar and play

nah i have a really high action for what i play(Metal)


How can you possible play any kind of technical music with such a high action. I find it quite difficult myself. Possibly lower your action and you will see just how much easier it is.
