Im having a problem right now with my overhead press, I seem to have plateaued at 145lbs. Ive tried deloading (helped a little) but It always comes down to a halt at 145. Im deloaded to 140lbs atm, but now it seems im stuck at 5 reps in that too! Im pretty sure my diet is on order as all my other lifts are progressing, it just seems to be presses and to a lesser extent bench presses where im getting caught up. My back stuff is progressing nicely, ive added pull ups in recent months as well as continuing with rows/deadlift.
So I was thinking of switching to db presses and push presses for the time being, but I have a few questions:
-Im going to struggle cleaning 2 70lbs dumbbells to my shoulders, so im probably looking at doing them 1 at a time - but would this be counter productive?
-Push presses with approx 5-10lbs heavier than my strict set, but with much, much slower negatives?
-Triceps work. Now ive read various places that say working tris will help with overhead press and bench, but whats recommended? Close grip bench? skull crushers? press downs? Hip push ups? I dont have any dip apparatus unfortunately.
-Switching to 3x3 for press and deloading at some point in the future?
-Adding a further set with lighter weight/more reps (1 set of 8-10 for example)?
