    No, I just took it as a normal part of lifting heavy. My program only did that to me about twice a month, so it wasn't a chronic problem.

    I also had that problem when I ran a PPL twice a week. ...

    Your "fight or flight" hormones might be staying elevated. Happens to me when I lift heavy.

    + 3,880 = 9,353

    Might be my only contribution. Right shoulder stills feels jacked during OHP even though it's fine with everything else.

    Yeah, that's a great program. I ran 11 cycles of it over about a year, posted a review of it sometime last year. You had good results.

    I ran a string of 11 cycles of C6week last year, it can definitely work that way. Thinking back to the cycles where struggled, I would have deloaded--taken a week completely off--after every 2 or 3...

    OP, someone *online* complained to you, or someone in your *gym* complained? That makes a big difference in how much you should care.

    Work on your technique. Bench is a pretty technical lift.

    Doing only sets of 1-2 reps won't help you that much. Volume is the main driver of growth.
