    Start from a clean. It worked for me.
    But now my rotator cuffs hurt and I don't know if they're impinged or not. I want to go for 60kg if I'm healthy again.
    Start from a clean and see how u go.

    >do 120lb OHP with good form for one, feel like a god
    >a week later fucking struggle to do 105lb for 4, almost die
    I swear to god the numbers you put on this lift depend on the position of the moon and stars, how well you've been eating, how long you've retained your cum, and like 20 other factors.

      adding 2.5lb on ohp is like adding 5lb for any other lift. Makes the variance between lifts even more pronounced I think.

      is 40kg ohp and 20k dumbbells seated shoulder press same thing?

      Not necessarily for a lot of reasons. Seated means you don't have to stabilise yourself, but it also means that you can't cheat by throwing yourself backward, although some people use inclined benches (instead of completely upright ones) to do seated which gets more of the chest involved, so they can push more weight. Using a dumbbell also makes things a lot different. I currently do upright seated db shoulder presses at 65lb for about 4x4, and my ohp 1rm is around 190lb.

      If you're not tight throughout your body then your pressing power will drop significantly. It's so easy to have an energy leak with lifts like deadlifts and OHP

      Lower the weight and up the reps for 3 weeks. Focus in on form and quality volume. When you attempt the 40kg lift after those 3 weeks it'll feel significantly lighter

        you dont use your core when squatting i guess (glutes are part of your core)
        also if you dont wanna "cheat" do seated presses with the barbell

    Cope by getting stronger. OHP trains with volume. People are huge pussies about OHP and train it like a deadlift (once a week lmao, even deads need volume but Rip cant program anything but squats).
    Alternate between volume and intensity days. The only part of form that matters is squeezing your glutes like you're trying to stop a prison rape and having your grip not too wide . And bracing your core but that's a given for every lift.
    Incorporate push press and BTN presses. People are scared of BTN press but, just like the people scared to deadlift, they are wrong and stupid. OHP and BTN OHP make healthy strong shoulders.
    Also do overwarm singles. On your warmup sets just finish with a single rep at 85-90% of your 1rm (5-10% of your working weight assuming g you're doing 5 reps) then do your working weight. It works wonders and will blanket improve most of your lifts.
    Also unless you're specifically doing strict presses dont be scared to use the stretch reflex at the bottom. More weight=more strength. Dont push press it tho. Also like squats do heavy walkouts to acclimate to heavy weight in the rack position.

      Please expand on volume training for strength.

      I can OHP lmao1plate, and try 3 x 5, twice a week, but don't really do anything else other than test a higher weight every now and then. What u recommend?
