comment Can't seem to do a proper bench press … any reasons as to why?
What weights, reps, workout schedule are we talking about here? What are your other upper-body lifts like? Which form are you trying to mimic? What's going wrong, specifically? And if you don't know, then can you provide a video? Because others we're just stabbing in the dark.

comment How different or “sub-optimal” is Deadlift if performed with reverse grip (both hands)?
I've heard the palms-outward grip can aggravate or tear the biceps tendon fairly easily.

comment Why Rippetoe's Texas or Mehdi's StrongLifts instead of Reg Park original workouts?
@Mephisto I love chin-ups but omitted them from my workouts when I was doing Starting Strength because they aren't in the program, I wasn't as good at designing programs as Mark Rippetoe, and my goal was to gain strength and athleticism by following the program. If my goal was bodybuilding, I'd do something more like Reg Park. But there are a lot of good exercises, and no program can do them all. These days, I make my own programming, and that includes pull-ups. It depends on your goals.

comment Scientific base for the construction of the army and special forces physical training plans
I do not think the Army is evidence-based in all its policies, no. I also urge you to define "fit".

comment Scientific base for the construction of the army and special forces physical training plans
Who said the programs were based in science? In what ways do you think it works well? Also keep in mind the extreme selection bias going on.

comment Not making anymore improvements from strength training … reasons why?
Describe in explicit detail your exercises, sets, reps, weights, as well as a meal-by-meal description of your diet and a description of your other sports or physical activity and sleep habits. Otherwise we can't even begin to debug the issue. (And yes, the stress could be an issue, but it might be a smaller issue than something else.)

@JohnP I think your two comments would make a good answer.
