So I’ve been stuck on all my lifts for past 2 weeks:
160 3x5 Front Squats
265 1x5 DL
110 3x5 OHP
155 BB Row
Even though I’m not back squatting currently (still working on hammy/calve mobility) I feel these are all REALLY low to stall on. So I’m guessing one of 3 things are happening:
- Not eating enough
- Not getting sufficient rest
- It is just hard to increase front squats, DL, OHP alone with no assistance.
I’m thinking it is probably 98% that is more like a combination of # 1 and 2. I average 7 hrs of sleep a night, which 6 is probably FULL ON sleep.
My weight has stayed the same (I’m 5’6 161 lbs) and I’m eating roughly:
I eat basically the same thing everyday with exceptions on Saturday nights.
This is my maintenance calories. My form feels good on everything. Is it just I need to up my calories a bit more? Maybe take it up to 2500-2700 to start with and see how it goes?
Any advice would be appreciated!
And here is my daily template meal plan:
-1 Cup Oatmeal
-2 tbsp PB crunchy
-1 Large Chicken Breast
-1 Large Baked Potato
-2 Cups Spinach
-1 stalk broccoli
-1 large bell pepper
-1 cup mushroom sliced
-2 Cups White Rice
I take no supplements and drink 96oz+ of water.
