Due to unavoidable circumstances, I may not be able to go to the gym today. My last workout went pretty much as usual. I upped the bench to 42.5kg and banged out one set, failed the next set however and took the weight down by 2.5kg (which I know is wrong under the rules of stronglfits now).
Squats I got up to 70kg but failed the last set. One more go and if I fail might go for a major deload.
Everything else seemed to go fine.
It's frustrating stalling early. I have upped the amount I eat drastically and am using myfitnesspal to monitor the amount of macros and calories I am getting in a day - aiming for 3000kcal-3250kcal. I started doing that this week and so hopefully it could be a food related problem.
On another note though:
Could my stalling be due to weird progression in weight. I can't remember how I progressed from the bar as I did not keep track on progress. If I were to say go down to something really light (30kg) and progress back up from there, would it even lead to a difference at all and break through a plateau? I want to build muscle and if I am eating 3250kcal a day squatting a light weight for the next couple weeks, is it really going to have any effect?
As for a form check, I'm hoping my brother will come into the gym when he is less busy with exams to record me doing my workout.
