I have been training for years,sometimes slacking, overall making progress. I use different workouts and methods, lots of yours included but I always run up against the same wall. Right when I’m progressing along and getting to where I have to up the effort, I can’t seem to get it together.
If it’s pullups I’m doing, my rep count goes down. If it’s squats, the weight from the previous week is too heavy. I’ve taken plenty of rest weeks, watched for overtraining, etc. but it seems that no matter how fast or slow I approach the training, moving a bigger weight (for me) seems to be something my body is not willing to cooperate on. It’s like it’s got a built-in effort-limiter, like those dumb rev-limiters they put in rental cars.
Like the subject says, I think it’s either laziness, or that my CNS possibly needs a kick in the ass. Maybe it’s mental, which I equate with laziness. But I’d like to eliminate the CNS part of the question. So all of the above boils down to this: is there anyway I can test/examine my CNS and after that, what can I do to fix it?
