Wait I’m confused about the week 1-2 part. So dont squat or DL for those weeks and eat good food while week 3-4 you eat healthier and squat and dl?.
Also for some reason even 8 reps is a struggle. I feel like I could do it but the cns or mind tells me to give up. Hence I think the reason my lifts went down were because let’s say I squat 225 for 10 but next workout this “thing” holds me down so I follow the general advice to go lighter(so I can hit 10). Then my body realizes that the lighter weight, maybe 200, was a struggle so the workout after this one, same thing happens so i drop it to 160. Same principle and then since i dont want everything to go wrong I decrease the reps but keep it at the lighter weight after trying to hit my original weight for 4 reps.
Therefore you see my irritation on me being able to squat 225x10 but now barely squeezing out 3-4 reps with 225.
I honestly need serious help
