    Default Missed OHP - more food or less weight

    Started NLP December 1st. Missed two workouts around Christmas time due to wife having surgery. Iíve added 5 pounds each workout. I started to struggle a couple weeks ago, so I added about 200 calories. Went from 3000 calories to 3230. This evening I attempted to OHP 5 more pounds, but failed on the 5th rep of the first work set. So, eat more food or just increase less weight at this point.

    Squat 220x5x3 from 105
    Bench 175x5x3 from 105
    OHP 125x5x3 from 75
    Deadlift 310x5 from 155
    44 years old
    224 pounds - Iíve stayed around this weight since started.

    5 more lb on the press is too much at this stage. You should be going up by 2 lb or so.
