Hello everyone, I am so happy. Let me explain my situation.
I had the flu from mid January to the beggining of March. I lost 10-15 pounds and most of my strength. I went from Squatting ATG 205 for 5 reps to squatting like 155 for 5 reps (after recovering from sickness). In mid march I was doing 185 for 5 reps. I was hoping that I’d reach 205 again today.
Loaded 135, got 10 reps easy.
Then got 175 9 times.
Then I put 205 on and got it 7 times, surprisingly easy. So I put 225 thinking “I’ll probably only get this once”. I went ass to calves for 5 clean reps. I knew I had more in me, but then my form would suffer so I stopped.
