Strong OHP . Almost the same as your body weight?

a little under for now.. i was repping > BW last year but my OHP tends to lose strength when I don't focus on it. another 6-8 weeks and i'll hopefully be around 2 plate 1RM

Wow 2 plate ohp holy crap. I only started doing ohp about 3-4 weeks ago . I did either seated dbs or seated bb since I had a delt imbalance. Still is kinda imbalanced but not as bad as before . Best before was 55 kg x 3 and now I did 60 x 2.5 . Gonna try hit 70 kg on it this year hopefully. My squats are really novice .. is 4 x 5-6 every 5 days ok?
[url]http://prntscr.com/j0c16y[/url] Planning to run this. I only got 3 days per week to workout now and 45-60 minutes. Do I need to add some hamstring work in there?

I think you should add in a little more back + post chain work, but otherwise seems ok. Squat 2x a week for a few years, add weight/reps and listen to your body and you'll get stronger
Longer you lift the more you'll realise that consistency and avoiding injuries is the most important thing...

Thanks man.
[url]http://prntscr.com/j0cp2w[/url] I took out calves because they suck lol . I added DB rdl's for posterior chain work and seated row for more back work. Anything else to change? Ehh this new gym I go to kinda sucks.. The benches are really good but there is no t bar row, no cable row , squat rack has no safeties .. but I gotta go with what I got I guess.
