    Should you wish to put in some heavier shoulder work, learn handstand pushups against a wall. When you can do 10-something get parallettes/pushup bars in order to increase depth and resistance, working up to a depth where you start pressing/bottom position is in line with torso/shoulders (upside down that is, you get it). Then you have a body weight military press without a barbell. Putting that exercise in on heavy ROP days (instead of C&P) made wonders for my pressing.

    Well, almost. Just nit-picking here, but you wouldn't be pressing the full weight of your arms, and some folks on the forum probably have some hefty guns. =)

    Thanks for the advice David, I will focus on the Bent Press for 4-6 weeks then report back with results. Your Bent Press tutorial video on youtube was great by the way.

    I practice these when I am away from my kettlebells, and I feel that at the very least they maintain my pressing strength. I currently do these stomach facing the wall with my hands on two thick books (2-3 inches) and go head to floor. I can do 2-3 reps of these quite comfortably, so HSPU amounts seem to correlate quite closely to KB military pressing strength.
    On your heavy day when you practiced HSPU, did you do ladders or did you program them differently?
