Complete rookie here. After a lot of program-hopping, I finally been extremely disciplined with SL5x5 for almost 5 months now. My numbers have gotten very good specially squats and deadlifts (squats: started with 30 kgs and I’m now at 100 kg / deadlift: started with 70 kgs and I’m now at 130 kg), however, not so good with the upper body exercises, mostly the overhead press: I started with the bar alone (20 kgs) and I’m stuck at 50 kg and the sometimes I even have to use my legs for the last reps.
Now, I think I’m eating accordingly (~3000 kcal/day, 2 g of protein/kg of body weight) and my weight has gone up (started with 68 kg and I’m 74 kg), I feel much stronger but I can’t seem to get my strength up in my shoulders.
Are there any specific complementary exercises that I can do to improve this? I think this is maybe my mistake but I don’t really know which ones would be better for me. I read that pull ups and dips might help, is there a specific number of reps that I should do? Kind of lost here as you can see. I might even be wrong about everything and my problem might be different than this.
As always, any info will be greatly appreciated.
