    Why would you do the same weight every week?

    because when i add extra weight i will not reach 6 repetition in the last set.

    military press = 4 sets

    i start with 10 kg each side
    15 kg each side
    17'5 kg each side
    20 kg each side


    i'm not exactly sure if the bar that i have is 20 kg or less. it looks exactly like the olympic bar but maybe is shorter. i work out at home.

    See the part I quoted? None of that matters.

    All that matters is that what you're doing isn't working.

    Nope. Not being funny or joking. My point was that those details don't matter. Doing the same weight repeatedly isn't going to improve your strength or physique. You need to figure out what you need to change in order to improve yourself, and then stick with that plan.

    i see, but that's my max, unless you mean by changing using lower weights. im not sure if that will be beneficial.

    i can increase the weight doing 3 or 2 reps. but i used to hear reps from 6 to 8 is ideal for gaining mass.

    and when one can't reach 6 repetition, then he should use a lighter weight, so he can do 6 repetition with a good form.

    Do some direct tricep and front delt work to aid in upping your pressing strength.
