I did some iteration of 5/3/1 for about nine months. Squat training max when from 275-340. Dig it.
That was my return to weightlifting after a about an 8 year hiatus, for context of what follows.
Started hearing a lot about high frequency training, mainly on another website. Did a lot of research and wrote a program. Paid a world record holder $100 bucks to check it out. He tweaked it minimally. Two months of volume, two months of higher intensity/lower volume. Some variation of squat, press, and pull every day.
Weights stalled. That was after about 6 months of training higher volume stuff. Sleep is 8 hours every night, has been since I was in highschool because I don’t miss it. Started counting my macros because I was stumped. I heard the saying you are sleeping enough and eating enough, then you need to work harder. That’s what I was doing… ?
I looked back at my year and half of logs, and it seems like the switch from the lower volume to the higher volume coincides with the stalled weight. I did 5/3/1 the longest, but I also made next to no progress with the higher volume stuff.
Anyone else have this experience?
