Well here I am 10 weeks into what I laid out for programming at the the beginning of January. Judging from my 1RM's I think I'll be staying the course for a while longer.
Seated BTN Press
Jan 3 - Got 1 rep then a fail at 185
Jan 6 - Stalling at 5 reps on my last couple of sets at 155
Feb 28 - 5 singles with 205
Mar 2 - Missed my 5x5 with 1 rep at 170
Jan 3 - Missed my 5x5 by 1 set and 1 rep at 235
Jan 13 - Got 2 singles and a miss at 290
Feb 28 - Got my 5x5 plus 1 rep at 260
Feb 25 - Got 315
Jan 5 - Got 7 singles with 405, just belt
Mar 8 - Got 2 singles with 500, belt and wraps
Another thing to point out is that I'm not overly struggling with the weights. Typically keeping them around 90-95% of my 1RM on my heavy worksets. When my arms were feeling a bit beat up in the past week or so I went to working in the 2-3 rep range at between 85-90% which I think is another way to help past a plateau on singles.
