Stubborn lift the press Nik, mines drifted around the same weights since beginning to use it. Apparently benching hurts your shoulder press so people with a strong bench find it harder to get better numbers.

Eh, I hope to build it up a little at a time like I did squats, I hope to build some muscle. I am tired of my wimpy press!!

Nice work on howitzer Nik. The press is hard to get stronger at for some reason. I would recommend cycling normal press, DB press (2 and 1 arm), and elevated hspus. Loui Simmons mixes up variations of a strength movement and gets better results than just doing the same thing over and over. I haven't tried this personally with the press but it makes sense in my head because it's such a stubborn lift.

See that is a good Idea jesse. My goal is not just to get a bigger press, it is to get stronger shoulders in general. That is the goal. I know my lacking shoulder strenght is affecting other movements. So I was looking at the press to strengthen my shoulders for other things. I honestly hate to press( because it shows the weekness so aparently) I will mix it up. That sounds like more of what I am going for.

What do you think Scott.
