It seems that my body has decided to take a new aproach to me lifting. For some reason Im weaker now then I was at the start of this month. I remember at the end of april getting up a triple with 275 and then the next bench session maxing out at 315 getting 2 sets of 1 rep that day. Today I benched and it went like this... 135x10, 185x8, 250x5, 275x1 (tried for 2 but faild, think my grip was a little to wide). Im not sure but Im betting if i go for another triple with 275 ill either fail or it will be harder then it was almost a month ago. I dont even wana think about 315 right now... I was hopeing for 325 atleast by the end of June but I doubt it now. Since I first got the 315 ive started takeing protein ( 4-5 shakes everyday, each has 20g of protein ) and ive laid off the cardio a little. Im not sure whats happeing but im pissed for sure. My routines have been the same since winter (ive put almost 80lbs on my bench since then) and if anything ive been eating/sleeping better lately.
On a sperate quesiton, how come when I was in 10th grade I squated 450 and it didnt hurt my back and now 225 hurts my back. I mean not a sore after kinda hurt, but a pain right where the weight sits like is a unbearable load... could it be ive lost back strenght??? Im lost on squats right now, and equally lost with deads. I dont know how I went from squatting 450 and deading 475 back in 10th grade and now cant do half of either.
