Whenever I train at the gym, I give it all my effort. By the end of my session (usually lasting an hour or slightly more) I am covered in sweat, can barely breathe and need to sit in my car for 10 minutes to be able to drive home.
This doesn’t matter if I had just done legs, back, shoulders or chest, each one leaves me wiped out.
The past 6 months I’ve made good progress, 40lb weight gain and 100% increase in strength on all lifts.
squat: 50kg x 10 - 140kg x 5
deadlift: 60kg x 5 - 150kg x 5 (shit)
bench: 50kg x 5 - 100kg x 6
seated bb press: 25kg x 4 - 70kg x 4
The past month or so though, I’ve completely stalled.
My strength just will not go up, my patience gets shorter and shorter each day, and I am extremeley fucking agitated.
But sometimes I just sit there in the gym between sets, and look at some really big guys come and go who barely break a sweat. What am I missing here?
Do I need to just take it easier for a while to make gains again?
heres my routine:
- legs - squats/legpress/lying leg curl - ramp up to 1 all out set
- shoulders/triceps - seated bb press/log press/lat raise/db shrug/bb shrug/skullcrusher/tricep pushdown - 1 all out set
- back - deadlift/bb row/pull up/lat pulldown/seated row -same thing
- chest/biceps - bench/inc bench/flat db/bb curl/db preacher curl - same thing
diet (tryin to lose love handles):
