      [email protected] is not that bad, especially that I've gained two kilos in the last two months with ease

      >hip hinge stuff
      Don't listen to Rippletits. You likely just gotta eat more.

      Deload your OHP and work back up to that weight.

      yeah it feels like cheating, but I'd be basically back to lifting the fucking bar
      what combo of reps x sets w would you recommend?

        Well that all depends on your goals. General rule of thumb is to lift heavy enough to where the last rep of the last set is near failure. How many sets you do depends on how many exercises are in your program, how many of them target the same muscle groups, ect. so I have no idea how to program for you specifically.

        I'd just start with 4x8-10 and see how that feels.

      Also press often and eat more. The Rippletits press increased my strict press more effectively than strict pressing.

        lol that's so fucking stupid, you're doing effectively an incline press to get over the hump.

          So what? Why is that a worse way to become stronger?
          You're like those retards that think ATG squats are the optimal modality to become stronger.
          You just go WAAAH IT DOESN'T LOOK AS PURE AND IT'S EASIER SO IT'S WORSE

            He never said he's training for strength. Training for strength or hypertrophy, you're always going to progressively overload anyway.

              The efficacy of progressive overload is dependent upon the rep range.

                Why, because you managed to arch your back enough to make an OHP into an incline bench? If OP does that he's gonna hurt his fucking back, you retard.

                >The efficacy of progressive overload is dependent upon the rep range.
                Maybe if you read his POST, you'll understand that he can't get past one set. He needs to strict press because I guarantee you that hip hinge shit is doing more harm than good for his consistency. He should do more reps less weight so he can get a feel for how heavy he can go instead of trying to push through sets way heavier than he can achieve.

                You don't impress me. Fuck off.

                Imagine being such a dyel that you think hinging forward, as in a deadlift, is safe and can be trained but that hinging backwards is somehow magically different and is dangerous and can't be trained! :O

                > so he can get a feel for how heavy he can go instead of trying to push through sets way heavier than he can achieve
                This is a good way to oust yourself as a huge dyel. The only way progressive overload works is by pushing yourself and doing sets you aren't certain you can do. I bet you have a sub 4pl8 squat and sub 5pl8 Diddy, lmao!

                I cannot begin to express how fucking dumb you are. Deadlifts are from off the floor, dummy. You're not holding weight above your head, so yeah, it is "magically" different, or it might as well be magic in your tiny brain.

                You're actually stupid, and have zero memory or reading comprehension. >lift heavy enough to where the last rep of the last set is near failure is what I said, you'll be hard pressed to find any advice to the contrary, it's always either near failure or TO failure. How do you expect him to find where that weight is if he can't do but ONE SET of his current working weight? You've given no advice, you've only been a fucking retard trying to show off your bastardized 2pl8 OHP and acting like you're an authority because of it.

                Either that or you're just trolling the fuck out of me, in that case I can respect that, ya got me.

                This doesn't matter for the sake of considering torques/forces on the back. Alarmingly dumb. The torques/forces are present regardless, what the origin of those forces are is inconsequential.

                I don't know what you wrote, didn't really read it. I already decided you had nothing useful to say.

    I've been able to do one, two sets of working weight but today it was shit, could finish only one per 5 reps
    guess more sets it is then, already doing five per workout ehhh
