yes i did that. but i got sick in a bad flu in march 2018, lost 10 kg body weight and had to start lifting again in, i think that was in May, at my new 1rm of 140 kg, worked myself up to one ugly single 180 kg in, June i think, then started intermittent fasting and dropped some body weight again, i guess i shed both a little muscle and a little willpower in addition to the fat loss and my 1rm dropped again, now i’m almost back at 180 kg but alot slimmer. i kind of like being slimmer, i was too fat before. i still might benefit healthwise if i slim down further, also, the push ups part of my goal gets easier, let’s not forget about that.
i’m aware of the dangers of training on the nerve. i’m threading on a thin line here. i rarely go above singles at 160 kg which is 91.4% of 175 kg. also i do tap tests and grippers to check my cns. i can’t swear on that i haven’t foked up my cns, but i feel that it is more or less ok.
i have been wondering how to know if the cns is foked or not. but, i guess if the cns shuts down then i will notice.
