I love lifting heavy weights.Ive gained most of my size from heavy weights(max-ot) when i was younger.But as soon as i hit my mid 20’s everytime i lifted heavy i ended up with a head cold.
So for the past few years ive been training with higher volume and higher reps. eg- 10-15 sets 8-10 reps
But after staying the same size for the past 2-3 years i decided to go back to the heavy weights(max-ot style).Ive tried this 3 times and always end up with a head cold within 4 days of going back to heavy weights.
The strange thing is when i was training with higher volume i did not catch a cold for 3 years.
So Does anybody have any advice? Would my CNS be shot or maybe im just not suited for the heavy weights anymore.
Its frustrating me as i love to lift heavy but getting a head cold every other week by training this way is not worth it.
Any advice would be appreciated.
