If you want to follow the type of lifting I was talking about, here are a few suggestions as you go forward. . .

Drop the weight down a little more and get 3 sets of 12 reps next session. Don't do ANY extra work sets. The goal is to make it feel easy, get all the sets and reps done with the same weight, and then we'll bump the weight a bit when you're ready.

Same as the Military Press. Drop a little bit of weight and get 3 sets of 12 reps. You keep failing to get all the reps and sets and then drop the weight to get everything done. Your body is telling you that it's given all it wants to give you. Continuing sets past failure is an advanced technique and not suggested for you at this time. It will eat into your recovery and you'll stall again.

This is a good start. Bump the weight up about 10 lbs next time and get 3 sets of 12 reps. Again, no extra sets just because you feel good. If you dig into your recovery too far then you'll just stall again. Enjoy the easy workouts while you can.

I won't mess with this as it seems you said it was something that BtB gave you.

If I had my way, I'd drop it all down to 1 set of 12 reps, it's much easier to gauge progress with fewer variables. But you seem to like the volume, so keep it to three sets if it makes you happy. Just realize that with three sets you'll always be doing high reps for those first couple of sets.
