Just a question, I’m currently bulking using the main lifts,plus a few extra’s. .
I’ve come to a bit of a stumbling block on the Military press. I’m stuck at a weight that I just can’t shift, anywhere between 3-5 reps is the norm, I can’t get to my elusive 6th rep (i usually increase the weight once i can do 6 reps with good form). i’m still gaining weight so please do not suggest eating more, I think if I ate any more i’d turn into the honey monster.
Any idea’s, i was thinking of any of the below
- Go back down a weight on the military press and attempt 10-15 reps then try and move up
- Stay at the same weight but do push presses
- remove military press for a few weeks and double up on Power cleans (i struggle most at the bottom part of the lift)
- do a shorter ROM
- do exercises that assist the supporting muscles hence overall increase in strength
I have searched the article database but only ever get Bench plateau’s blah blah blah
I look forward to your responses guys.
