Injury, slow recovery, amazing sleep, a lot of food.
Do i just have shit genetics? or are my expectations too high? I started out at around 5’8 and 127lbs, im now about 5’9 152lbs (19 y/o) and was very weak.
Deadlift sub 100 probably
Squat don’t know was an idiot, got injured doing like 65 lol.
Overhead press bar
Bench 3x5 125
Overhead press 3x5 80
Row 140 3x8 (i don’t even row often wtf lol… like once every 2 weeks)
Squat 110 2x5 1x6
Deadlift 190 1x5
Anyway, the first time i started squatting months ago i injured my self. that was my fault 100%, it put me out for a while from deadlifts and squats.
I’ve been doing them again consistently, just got a power rack, and started at like 65lbs. I got to 110lbs a bit below parralel. recently, it felt way harder, but i was confident. I did 3x5 + 1 extra on amrap. I felt fine, my hip “kind of” hurt, it was not bad at all 1/10.
But now if i lay on my side or something my hip and even sometimes near my knee will really hurt.
How the hell can i ever hit these weights if i gain over a lb a week to ensure good nutrition and recovery but i get injured WITH good form on the squat. I also don’t really gain strength that fast it seems, sometimes i struggle to add 5lbs to my 190lb deadlift. (had to redo 190 last week)
sorry for the mess… i have a lot of ideas i want to get out but i know i cant do it.
