Howdy all, just wanted experiences from some of the stronger guys.
As I enter the heavier weight ranges on a regular basis, 500/600+, I am now finding that maintaining that strength takes the utmost vigilence. Where as around 400 I could not train for a a week or 2 and come back and lift the same, now if I don't lift heavy for a maximum of 10 days I rapidly lose stregth.
My squat went from 510 to barely scraping out a 407 after 2 or so weeks off to study for exams. It is absolutely bizarre. It usually takes me anywhere from 3-6 weeks to get the strength back, and requires alot of frequency and intensity.
I know I may be a bit of a freak case, but has anyone else realised they lose strength rapidly at big weights compared to when they were moving less?
