To piggyback on what Fazc said, one of the real keys to increasing my pressing strength was volume. I did a truckload of overhead and bench pressing volume as a beginner and intermediate.

When I see someone who is struggling with bench my first thought is often...more volume. Odds are they are not doing much. For example, I could never make great progress on a Wendler's 531 bench or OHP as a beginner or early intermediate. I would need to add in more volume as assistance.
