I generally ask as I would like to find a trick for the overhead press, but I've largely come to the conclusion after asking many different sources that it doesn't exist. What would you do with a lagging lift? My approach to date has been to re-examine form and consider assistance, but I don't alter my approach to the big 4 in any way. I did have luck with close grip benches increasing my bench.

Same thing happens to me when I drop oats from my diet for whatever reason. I'm not even that big, but between the oatshit, fiber, and all the water it absorbs, I'll drop 5lbs.
