Re: Stalled on press, even going backwards

i too have been having similar problems, only i stalled much lower at 135. its a problem that has left me quite irritated...

one idea that a crossfit trainer friend of mine had seemed like it had merit...
he said that it might be a lack of midline strength... basically the midline is not strong enough to harness the strength necessary for the shoulders to do their job of getting the heavy bar overhead.
so i started working on my OHS, and other midline stuff. im pretty sure it helped... BUUT i havent been able to see any real improvements yet because i got the flu just about the time i would have started to see improvements...
so yeah...
just an idea...
