Probably really stupid question....
Hi, I wonder if I could get some advice?
I'm 38 (5'9 about 175lb) and have been using 531 for quite a few years (with interruptions due to job as doctor, fatherhood and some injuries), and I love it.
I train 3x week (combining press & BP on one day, which seems to work okay) and do BBB 3 x10 with 60% for assistance (5 sets seemed to give overuse injury) I try to get about 7 hours sleep, and eat enough to get flabby every now and again (at which point I trim back a bit) so I think recovery seems at least reasonable.
My problem is that when I stall and deload 3 cycles, I often work back up and stall repeatedly at the same weight, especially on the squat. I go up 4 kg/cycle on DL, 3kg on Squat and 2kg on BP and only 1kg on Press).
I'm probably making some basic schoolboy error, but is there anything obvious I should be looking at fixing? Thanks!
