    Hi Joe, quick question for you. I’ve noticed that my pressing strength has stalled and in some cases started to backslide over the last few weeks. I’ve never been a particularly strong presser but I’ve usually been able to make fairly steady progress. I dropped pressing volume a few weeks back (from 3x presses to 2x presses per push day) and that didn’t seem to do much. I would say I’m an intermediate lifter (4-5 years of training, 3 plate bench/190lb military press). Any advice? Much appreciated!

    Should also add I’m eating at maintenance. BW is 200 pretty much on the dot and I generally do moderate protein/low fat/high carb. I sleep pretty well (probably average 7 solid hours a night, sometimes more).

    Thanks Joe. Should have clarified in my initial post that other muscle groups are progressing nicely and that I am rotating lifts (A variation and B variation for each body part). Sounds like my issue is food-based. I’ll up cals a bit and see if that fixes things.
