    My military press has been feeling pretty heavy lately..I was looking thru my log book at past cycles where my military progress was doing really good and i looked to see what assitance stuff i was doing..I was doing weighted dips 4-5 sets of 8-10 reps every week..I would pick a weight and once i was able to get 8-10 reps for 4-5 sets i would add another 5-10lbs and repeat...Hmm i havent been keeping up with dips lately so this may be the problem too...I dont know..Im going to finish this cycle out and then may lower my training max..Im going to dips like i use to every week..
