I just competed in a powerlifting meet on November 15th. Since then, I felt like I have been getting weaker on my squat. I had a light week the week after the meet. I then ran the 531. On the first 2 weeks, I missed my last sets by 1 rep, but was able to bang out the single rep on the 3rd week. I then did the de-load. I ran the 531 again. On the 1st week, I missed the last set pretty bad, which was suppose to be 415 for 5 reps. I only hit 1. I think it had to due with the fact that I was pretty tired since it was at around 2 in the morning. I then decided to start over the cycle by only using 90% of my max. I hit all 3 sets pretty well.
I just feel tired in my legs. Idk, no mojo, I guess. Should I get back to running a cycle using my original max instead of 90%? just finish out the cycle using 90% of my max? or maybe do something completely different for a couple weeks to maybe get out of a possible plateau?
