Greetings to all, I started lifting in July, around the time when I joined T-Nation, since then i have been reading a-lot and had been making good progress both strength and weight wise.
strength and weight have gone way up, when i started training i was 100lb and could barely move bench 50lb now i weigh 152lb and do that weight for multiple reps.
(sorry i know most people probably wont care about this but i guess i just like to ramble).
So i have been doing a four day split;
Decline DB press
Incline DB press
Palms down cable curls
-Legs & Shoulders
Side Lateral Raises
-Back & Triceps
behind the head press
-Repeat or Rest (depends how i feel)
For all exercises I have been doing 5x5 to failure
season usually last less than an hour (if i go longer i usually end up throwing up).
so my problem is this; i had been making solid gains for the past three months but now my progress has stalled to a stop, no stronger nor bigger.
i am uncertain what to change…
Should i go to 3x10-12 set/ rep range
Change exercises/ order
there are so many variables i don’t know what to do, i would like to ask for some assistance from more experienced lifters to give advice or direction, i contemplated using the search bar but i was not sure what to look for and none of the stickies seem to really explain what to do when you stop making progress (sorry if they do and i just missed it).
