I guess part of me feels sorta badass doing them. I've considered giving up overhead presses, too, since I can't make progress at them, either. I'm getting nice definition (for me anyway) just staying stuck where I am. Come to think of it, I think trying to do pullups is giving me the definition more than the bench and press. I'm seriously considering just doing vanity stuff on the arms and sticking to squats and deadlifts and my pitiful attempted pullups for actual strength.
