Is desensitization something most intermediate lifters need to worry about or is it something that only people putting up very heavy weights with very high volume should be concerned about?
I'm not sure I'm expressing myself well here. Compared to the normal, commercial gym, population I lift heavy (300+ bench(barely), close to 500 squat, 500+ deadlift) and regularly. That said, I only workout 1 to 1.5 hours at a time, 4-5 times a week. I rarely max out, almost never go to failure, and avoid grinding out reps for the most part. Long walks on off days. Now, I also work very long and stressful hours and generally get 5-7 hours a night of sleep at best. I eat 5-6 meat egg or whey meals a day but im not as on point with my peri workout as i should be.
Considering that broad, and overly wordy, description, is desentization something that could happen to someone like me? If I had to guess, many of your readers would be at a similar level as me in regard to experience, strength and lifestyle.
Thanks in advance and always appreciate your input.
