Hey, I am doing a pretty high volume routine based off of GVT. I am on week 7 currently. I was doing squats three days ago and I hit pr in terms of making my 10x6, until I hit set 9. For some reason as soon as the weight went down and I landed on the box (I used a low box to help me with my form), I just couldn’t get the weight up. I had to rest it on the safety bars and take double my rest time (3min instead of 1:30) to do my 10th set, where I only got 1 rep. My workout looked something like this:
75%1RM @ 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 3 0 1
last week was something like (left my notebook in the car and it is raining out so I am not going to go get it):
75%1RM @ 6 6 6 6 6 5 4 3 4 4
So I hit a PR in terms of maintaining my sets of 6, but I actually lost a little bit of total volume this week.
The rest of the day and the following day I was extremely tired, sore and thirsty. I am not under eating at all, probably taking in between 3000-4000kcal. I was supposed to do bench press and row yesterday, but I skipped because I still felt exhausted, thirsty and was still somehow very sore. I did my bench and row routine today and hit PRs on both lifts, surprisingly.
I train about 3x a week and eat a fuck ton, so I am not sure if this is really overtraining or an issue with nutrition. Any ideas? Maybe it was just a bad day. I didn’t eat or drink anything before my squat workout but I would be very surprised if the effects would be so adverse/last more than one day.
