I’ve been doing Starting Strength, just finished my 4th week. But now i was unable to get the weight up on my bench 2 workouts ago, and my last workout I actually had to drop weight on the Press.
3x5 Bench 155
3x5 Press 105
Bench 1x5, 1x4, 1x3 160
Press 1x5 105, 2x5 95
i made it through 3 full weeks of progress every workout, but now that this happened, what do I do? When I Pressed today, I tried to put 110 on and couldn’t get it over my head, dropped it to 105 and barely got all 5 reps, tried to do a second set and couldn’t move it so I dropped it to 95.
What should I do now that im starting to have trouble getting the weight up? deload? How exactly do you do a deload? Keep the weight the same for the next workout and try to get all 3x5? Any advice would be appreciated, i’ve been making good progress on the other lifts and would like to see these lifts start going back up.
