The number on the scale is going up. Almost 1 pound each week - which is just seeming a little to neat to me…
I’m also lifting heavier shit. But is this just the creatine I started taking? Is it just my CNS getting better? I’m not seeing any more MUSCLE. My pants still fit but I am starting to look soft. But I am stronger? Makes no sense.
I’ve been performing 30 reps in a work out lately (plus another 20 or so reps of curls at the end because I want ‘guns’).
Reps are 5,3,2,1 for 3 big lifts in a workout. Starting 15 kgs under last weeks 1RM. Hoping for 5kgs above last weeks 1RM on the last final rep. Smallest plates in my gym are 2.5kg - wish there were 0.5kg plates to make incrementing weight a little easier.
I regulary fail on that last rep. With squats it is horrific. With bench it is just bruising my ego and laying the bar back on the safety bars and crawling out.
But after 2-3 weeks of failing on the next increment I make it.
I just wonder once I make it to my goal lifts (not if but when!) what I’m going to aim for next.
If I want to add volume (more reps) to my workouts I’m going to have to drop the weight.
But then I would be lifting pansy weights…
I am not huuuuuge and it is very annoying.
Thats my rant for this evening.
