Make's me think, is the shoulder press loss a cause or an effect of the stagnated benchpress? I guess only way to find out is to start the OH again and see if the bench goes up with the OH.
Not being a killjoy. Think it comes down to the fact that I have different weaknesses than you. My triceps and are back strong, but I am chest and shoulder weak.

In the past my bench always went up as long as my OHPs were going up. I gave up OHPs last Fall in an attempt to streamline, as I was beginning to think they may not be needed.

Again, this post really wasn't about OHPs, but about analyzing my log for changes being made. I missed the important point that my bench started dive right at the point in which I gave up all OHPs. This may not be the cause, but logically it makes sense to add in some shoulder strengthening work to test this.
