    You may have started out too light on the upper body lifts, too heavy on the squat/deadlift progressed them inappropriately, or some combination of these such that you had more "room" to progress the upper body lifts before the stalled out. Hard to say for sure.

    Hey Austin thanksfor the reply man!!
    Yea Lol increasing my calories this week helped a bit, i hope its enough to move me past this, but if this was the underlying problem wouldn't my low bodyweight be a bigger factor in my upper body lifts? how come they (presses) are still moving forward and SQ and DL just stalling? usually it's the opposite way around

  • LP: Squat and DL regressing, Pressing progressing

    Hi, First of all thank you a ton for all the great content you guys put out,its been very helpful!
    I am a 22 year old male, (170cm 54kg) and ive been on SSLP for around 4-5 but with some major alterations untill recently due to tendon injuries (swapped squats for progressive depth box squats, presses for progressive ROM partial presses, both with some tempo alterations similar to dr baraki quad tendinopathy protocol, and did a few pre mature resets due to pain levels increasing) recently ive got to th point where these tendon injuries have finally became not as much of an issue and no longer the limiting factor in my training. However ive run in to an unusual situation, even though my BP and Press have been steadly going up (recently started microloading) currently at BP:52kg Press 35kg for 3x5, my Squat and DL have not only stalled but very recently even regressed quite a bit: Squat stalled at 67.5 last set getting 3 to now after multiple resets i struggle to do 60kg 3x5. DL ever since i moved to phase 2 no longer pulling every session has stuck at 70kg and is just getting harder. I know im grossly underweight and currently increasing my surplus however i could only assume if weight was the underlying issue my presses should take a greater hit. I would only think it could be technique so i filmed myself squatting and compared it to SS videos but could find any major form issue. I would really appreciate maybe a opinion on what to do going forward, this stall has been for over a month and multiple resets.
    Again thanks alot for all the great content, Greetings from the holy land!
