Lately I’ve noticed with my new program, I’m getting tired way too soon.
day1: squat 5x5,
clean + jerk 3x5,
leg press 3x8,
lunges 3x12 (combined),
leg raises 3x10 w/burnout knee raises following last set.
day2: dead lift 5x5,
power clean 3x5,
bentover rows 3x8,
day3: bench 5x5,
mil. press 3x8,
upright rows 3x8,
and that rear shoulder workout 3x10
On my last dead lift workout, I didn’t really have enough energy to do even power clean, let alone eveything else. I used to be able to take the bar right from the chest position and bring it down to the floor with control, tap the ground, and begin the next rep. Now I have to set the bar down and rest in between each rep. Also, sometime I can’t even get the bar to the ground without resting it on my quads for a second.
On my squat workout the only problem I have is at the end when it comes to doing leg raises. My legs are so worn from doing everything else I don’t have enough juice to lift them up.
On upper body I seem to be doing fine.
My question is, do I need to cut some lifts out of my workouts? If so, which ones? Which workout must stay in in consideration of being proportional, and which ones can go? Also, do I need to change my rep patterns?
