I'll jump on this train. I've hit 90kg x 1 on two cycles of 5/3/1 so going back to basics: 5x5 Fridays, and 3-4x5 Push Presses Mondays. Hit 80kgx5x5 today, and did 90x3x5 PP Monday. Only doing the PP to get used to handling the heavier weight overhead. I'm only really interested in Mil pressing 100kg (225).
Not sure whether to go straight to 85kg next week and start building up from fewer reps or take a smaller jump. Should probably do the latter; will probably do the former.
Also thrown CGBP back in recently to help my bench; should transition to some extra weight on the MP.

Well, I'm in, but a little differently. I'm going for 1 plate, current max is 90 lbs. I'll be able to update in about two weeks with a new max, hopefully it'll be around 110-120.
Alright, just started 3rd week of the strength training cycle I'm running (program, not roids, obviously). Two day ago I put up 85 pounds for 10 sets of 3 reps, which is only 5 pounds off my starting 1 rep max pre-routine. A week or two from now I'll be able to put in an actual 1 rep max test, but it seems like it's gone up quite a bit at this stage.
I'm in as well. Still have a ways to go. Last max was a very easy 195, but I failed 205 miserably. For anybody interested, I have been having great success lately with a higher volume approach that I read about on Chaos and Pain. Basically, I started with a weight I could do for about 10 reps (135) and started pressing it for 3 sets of 8, increasing the total reps week by week until I could press it for 3 x 10 with consistency. then, I bumped the weight up to 155 for 3 x 6, and I'm currently working on pushing that weight up to 3 x 10 consistently. It's been a lot of fun and helped me add a lot of strength. Will post once I get the 225. Might be a while haha, but who knows.
