I push myself in each set, pretty confident I can’t squeeze any more sets out as I pretty much reach failure in the last few reps of the last set in each exercise. As mentioned, I superset or alternate sets wherever possible in my workouts, and I try to keep my rest periods down. How else can I improve how ‘‘hard’’ I train?
This may be an issue, but it’s been ongoing for a year or so now, so I doubt it’d be responsible for my recent worries. Long story short, I find myself waking up 1-2 times each night for the loo… bit concerned about how it’s affecting the depth/quality of my sleep.
The first few weeks I’d been making great gains, perhaps I’ve just grown ‘used to it’?

Also a valid point, but I put a lot of effort into calorie counting, staying clear of chocolate, sweets, sugary or simple carbs, and I’m eating around 250-300g of protein per day. My main problem is that (for convenience) a lot of my protein sources are ready-cooked, so I’m not sure about the preservatives etc they have added in, and I eat a lot of prawns. Would I be better off cutting out the pre-cooked stuff and just doing lots more chicken breast cooking etc myself? What about the prawns… good/bad?
