Looks like the routine is working really well for you, xphilx. Those squats numbers are looking good :)

I haven't made much progress with it either. Maybe try push presses for a while. I did those with heavier weights for a while and went back to strict presses and found that my strength had improved a bit.

the push press i actually a good idea and i'm convinced that it's a very usefull exercise but when i did it a while ago i always had problems with pain in my wrists and shoulders. i guess it's just not my exercise.

I did 6 weeks of dumbell presses without back support instead of military press, that took me over my plateau. But pushpress and other variations is probably equally good. The only thing with push press is that it is depressing to go down in weights again when you switch back.

trained in another gym today and found out that the bar that i use for squats, deads and military press is obviously not 5kg heavier as a normal bar. a trainer and another guy in my gy once told me so and i believed it. so you can take-off 5kg from all squats, deads and mp i did and of course also from my squat and dead pb's. :(

it's u.s. thanksgiving. one of the things i'm thankful for is the title of your workout log. i think about it sometimes when i doubt i can lift another rep.
