I'm on the second week of my 5th 531 cycle. This week I experienced a significant loss of upperbody strength. I was able to bench press 77.5 kg for 10 times last week while I pressed 82.5kg for just 2 out of 3 today (last month I managed 8 reps with this same weight).
My military press also suffered on monday and my pullups are worse then when I started training. I do feel a bit under the weather but that usually means a rep or two less than last time but definatly not something like this.
I did not change anything in my training and diet and have been making good progress until now. Should I take a week off and restart this cycle or does anyone have any better advice for me.
Squats weren't as good as the last time with the same weight but still ok. Should I still go deadlift on Friday or just back off completly?
Any advice is appreciated!
