Alright well heres the deal. I started back up with a heavy lifting and diet/nutrition program on January 1st and I have seem progressive and steady gains up until the last six weeks. Over the last six weeks I have made little to no strength gains at all and in some cases have actually declined in some lifts. I have tried modifying my routine slightly by adding new lifts and taking some out. I do chest on monday, arms on wednesday, back/shoulders on friday, and legs on saturday.
I am still taking lots of protein and vitamin supplements in addition to fish oil. I weigh about 190 lbs and would estimate I consume an average of about 250 grams of protein a day. In addition I get about 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Any one have any ideas on why I am in such a bad plateau. I cant remember the last time I did a set of bench and felt good about it afterwards. Im not discouraged just mildly frustrated that all this dieting and training has me stuck in a plateau. I am looking build mass and strength at the current moment not to get cut.
I would be great if anyone could give me and information like how many carbs I should aim for a day and the amount of rest I should aim for in between sets. I would say that right now I am at about 2-3 minutes per set. I have been lifting for a long time but I know for a fact that I do not know everything there is about lifting at all. I merely know the tip of the ice berg. Any help or info you guys could provide me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
