I am requesting you to read the whole post please…
Hey everyone. Thanks for the suggestions @strongmanjoe. Everything is just falling apart. I had a horrible workout today unfortunately. Struggled with 22.5kg overhead press for 5-6 reps for f*ck’s sake.
After working out today I left the gym depressed and disappointed because looking back in the past 1.5 months I haven’t added any weight to my bench and I am currently only benching like 40kg for 4-5 reps. Really disappointed today. Struggled with the weight I did last time and the time before that – guys I’m seriously depressed.
I did like 6-7 sets of bench today because out of the 6, only 1 was good for touching chest and 2 were good with the “bumper,” [you’ll see in the videos].
I worked out in the morning today and ate some breakfast = 40g oats + 1 banana + 25g cereal + milk = 390-400kcal. *Was this too less?
Question: how many kcal should I target before lifting, how much time before?
Form: To chest bench
Then, the trainer suggested benching with something on top of my chest, here is a video: I was able to bust out 7-8 reps on this with 40kg: Bench with bumper
Question: Do I need to touch my chest? I also got a wider grip a little – pointer finger at the rings, is this okay? I’m 6’ in height, and I think I have fairly long arms, so please let me know.
Rant: I don’t know whats happening honestly. I haven’t gained jack, I’m eating enough, I feel and look fatter, so I have no clue what is happening. Am I even cut out for this? I have been lifting for one f*cking year but that’s all I have to show for. I need some motivation guys, I have none left.
