My brother got back from being stationed abroad (air force) and of course he didn’t want a beer on arrival, he wanted to go gym and show his younger brother he is still the older brother.
He does these 25 minute workouts and today was chest. So having maxed out at 70kg on my 5x5 bench for one set I was assuming I had gotten much stronger, but it seems Quite the opposite, I am now lifting less on my x12 sets than I was prior to starting the 5x5 routine.
I benched 50kg for 12/52.5kg/52.5kg incline dumbbell pressed 12x14kg twice and 1x12kg, had to pause during sets from arms giving out.
Is this strange or does this shit happen when you change rep ranges or is it weird for your 12 rep sets to go down when your doing 5 rep ranges?
