I'm still new to strength training. When I first began a few months ago I ran(or tried to run) Starting Strength.
Long story short, I changed the program over and over, and have now realized that I never gave OHPs a proper chance. Last week I did a session or two with some SOHPs to see where I was at, and it turns out I'm still able to make session to session progress with this excercise.
This has go me thinking of training for a few weeks with SOHPs and bring my numbers up a bit as they're not great. I think this would benefit me as the only sort of work my shoulders get are 45 Degree incline BB benchpresses.
So I'd like to hear what you guys think about this. My 2 ideas are to this:
1. Do SOHPs 3 times per week, M,W,F for about two weeks to bring numbers up, then go back to flat bench for one or two weeks and keep alternating until I've milked the Linear Progression on SOHP.
2. Do SOHPs 2 times per week, M, F with flat bench in between to keep my flat bench numbers of the rise.
I'd like to hear opinions on both idea please, and if anyone's wondering, no I'm not on a well known program. I train my own way. I know, I know...I'm not Rip or anyone like that, but I do know what I'm doing right now and have my goals set. Making progress on all lifts too, so I think I'll be ok.
Thanks for reading.
