I am looking for suggestions on improving my OHP. I have done 18 months on 531. I have had to reset twice now just short of bodyweight (current weight about 72kg, 1rm 70kg). Although my OHP has gone up and is higher than my bodyweight when I started 531, I have never actually managed to lift more than bodyweight, which is my major goal for this lift. Until recently my assistance has been press 5x10@70% TM on bench 5,3,1 days, and bench 5x10@70% on press days.
At some points I was also doing joker sets to a 1rm, but I have dropped these in the last 6 months. In the last couple of cycles I have done a first set last on press days, followed by 3x 8-10 incline bench and 3 x 10 dips. I do 3x 5-7 standing DB press and 3x strict HSPU sets (about 5-7 reps) on bench day. Obviously the usual pull ups/rows also.
I don't use the false grip and I don't use a belt/wraps ever (not negotiable- I want this goal on the strength of my own shoulders and core with a "normal" grip), but otherwise I have followed the other tips in the FAQ in Jim's book. I have tried cutting out conditioning entirely and doing a moderate amount of short (10 mins or less) hard conditioning- makes a difference to how I feel, but not much difference to the actual numbers I can post. I suspect there is no magic exercise (? more volume ? less volume ? partial reps), but if someone can give me a tip that can push me over the line I would be grateful.
