I lift 1 on 2 off. If I do cardio in between it is only 30 min of powerwalking on empty stomach, only once this week. So, I don't think I am overtraining as far as frequency is concerned. I do everything to failure.
My day in question looks like this:
flat bench 3x10,8,6
I have noticed that after flat bench I can barely do incline. I feel like all of my energy is drained after flat bench. So today, I decided to do incline first before flat.
I was so pumped that with the same amount of weight I was able to do 12 reps on my first set of incline. But I was puzzled that my 2nd set did not come close to the 1st(reps).
Also, on flat, same amount of weight from last week on flat, but I was struggling just to get it up the 1st rep. On the second set I had to give myself more time to recoop because I could not get it up.
My diet is good, got 7.5 hrs of sleep last night, ate about an hour before(normally do)......everything in check.
I have been doing to failure for about 3-4 months and have seen incredible gains.
I would like to get some feedback about what is going on with this. Some suggestions would be appreciated. I would like to try new things before changing from "to failure".
