Anyone else have any experience with this? I haven’t been sleeping to well and melatonin resets my sleep patterns pretty well, but this is the first time that I tried it the day b4 a workout.
Now I’m explosive as fuck, my absolute strength is pretty shitty, but if a weight is in a decent range I can damn near throw it. (when i had a training partner months ago, i could ballistic bench 95#'s 9inches from my outstretched arms my max bench was 175 at the time)
Normally I can 1 arm snatch 110lbs.
melatonin slowed me the FUCK down. I could barely 1 arm snatch 75lbs 5x
Even when I did DE benching, 115-135 felt heavy as hell when I tried to move it fast. I felt like I was stuck in mud.
Here’s the interesting part:
I decided to try a heavy 2x5 and (surprisingly) I could grind out 225-245 like it was no problem, hell i paused at the bottom (my chest) for 4-5 seconds before lifting again and it was no big deal.
I can NEVER grind out lifts, if it’s not moving fast it’s not moving at all.
Yesterday was just WEIRD for me.
Anyone ever have any experience with thi,s or maybe the planets were just aligned right…
