Back story: been lifting on and off for 3 or so years. Now 28, 6’3, went from 250lbs of out of shape down to 200 then slowly back and fourth from 200 to currently around 230 trying to stay under 15%
Three weeks ago I finally pulled 500# raw. No real programming or anything was followed just pulled heavy singles and added weight each week. After pulling 500 I found a 10 week program to follow and started there. The workout went great except failed in the final set of 465x2 (only got one). I decided I needed a deload week so the next week I went down to around 275 for 5x3.
Fast forward to this week and tried to follow the program again, this week 400x2 felt extremely heavy. My hamstring got pretty sore so I rolled my and barely pulled 435x1. Didn’t even bother the final set of 465.
What am I missing? My diet hasn’t changed and I’m drinking plenty of water and getting my normal amount of sleep. Nothing in my life has really changed, I just can’t figure out why I’m feeling so weak now.
Not sure if Instagram links are allowed but currently it’s the only place I have the video uploaded. I’d not I’ll upload somewhere else after work.
