    Default Shoulder Press - Personal Best with PTTP

    November 30th I decided to get back into pressing and deadlifting. I was active, but I wasn't focusing. December was the month to focus

    I dusted off my copy of Power to the People and decided to test my deadlift and press to get a sense of where I was at.

    Deadlift is at 315, not great, it's been better, but I'm a runner guy and I'm OK with that.

    Shoulder press has been STUCK in around 125# for months.

    December 1st BAM! Start the PTTP program. No matter what comes up, I have time for four sets of 5 reps.

    December 15th, test the shoulder press. 140 (after proceeding to add 5 pounds at a time to each press from 125) SLOWLY went up.

    FEELS AWESOME.

    I won't be testing the deadlift for a while, but it's coming.

    Not my first, but the first PTTP cycle in a long time, which explains the big jump.

    The first time I did PTTP, I was stuck at 315. In one cycle I went up to 355. I finally ended at 378.

    This time I'm back at 315, and I'll probably retest the deadlift at the end of the month.

    The primary plan is to focus on the cycle for a few rounds and trust the easy strength building.
