      Enjoy training your muscle in the opposite direction than what you want. Better stay to 5 reps. Up the weight and if you fail at 3 just push press the last two with a slow negative.

        If you aren't hitting your 5 reps on a planned progression scheme, you've accumulated too much fatigue. Ramming your head against the wall and going past failure won't help you.

          This usually isn't the problem with OHP, it's very hard to overtrain that lift. Though the fatigue from other pressing exercises, like benching, could cause problems for OHP.

          Muscle fibres are pushed to the end you train them. It's why the body building meme about cardio kills gains was actually correct. You do a set of heavy squats at 5 reps and then do 20 rep sets on leg extensions is illogical. It's why most guys are weak as fuck and progress incredibly slowly. Negatives make sense since you've only gone to failure concentrically. You also need 48 hours to repair the muscle meaning all these 6 day a week routines are actually killing hypertrophic gains

      Do it often, 2-3x/week. No "light" days. Start 3x5 PR every workout SSLP style, when that stops working make one day 5x3, one 5x5, maybe 3x8 too, etc. All max effort within those rep ranges.

      For ohp, I have more luck with increased frequency, so 2-3 time a week, once hard and heavy the other times light and high reps or a variation like btn, push press, seated, db etc. And much more volume. 5*5 at least, I've done up to 10*5 with good results. But I only press 200lbs so idk

              The spine is in a normal position. The weight is not applying a moment to the spine because the erectora support it.

              You have nevet done a layback press, so you don't know. I have done it many times and I have zero issues.

              This guy did it with 500lbs and his back was also just fine:

    The reason your ohp stalls is because you should be doing dumbbell version to fix imbalance and be able to do them supported so your core won't drag you down
    You should be doing press in the dumbbell form too, barbells are for rows,squats,hipthrusts and deadlifts everything else is either a même excercize or inferior to their dumbbell version

    Instead of getting micropl8s get some chains of different size and weight them, tie the ends together, there you got your micropl8s.
    Micropl8s are stupidly expensive, a couple chains will be a couple bucks at most, you can ask the clerk at the hardware store to weight and cut them if you don't have the tools.

    Pump some blood into shoulders with pushpresses, especially BtN. Pack on some shoulder mass. Strict OHP will go up too. Faster progress than adding tinyweighs to your tiny strict OHP.

    Not really necessary. You can just spend twice as much time on the lower weight or do more reps before you progress, then jump up with the 2.5 kg/5 pound plates instead.

    Personally my OHP exploded when I changed my routine and started focusing on extra hypertrophy sets after my main heavy sets. I do an extra 5 sets of 10 at 40-60% 1RM. They are surprisingly difficult to do despite the low weight, harder even than the main weight. OHP 1RM went from 60 to 82.5 kg in about a year.

    I would highly recommend you not lift OHP like a bench press like your pic unless you want to fuck up your spine.

      This is pretty good advice. I just do a pyramid. Doing more reps on the way back down/to fail. 5x-8x Bar, 25's, 45's, 55-65's at like 3 real reps couple sets, back down 8-12x. Just keep strict form and do what feels right.
