Yesterday was second training day this week when i went to bench on my last set at 195 i only did four reps and then COULD NOT lift the bar at all... i used to be able to do six no sweat... but lately i have been having alot of trouble doing them.... and yesterday i just couldnt... things that i think could be the cause are lack of sleep because of work and other responsibilities, i also lost about 4lbs recently and i dont know how... i added dips and squats to my routine but idk if that has any effect. and ive been off creatine for about a month and a week

Please advise on how i can fix this situation and on what can be the cause

whats your diet look like, loss in weight could be LBM and not fat. If you upped your intensity of workouts by add more set/reps and still want to increase strength you need to adjust your diet accordingly. Lack of sleep and increased stress as well as lack of focus in the gym can all play a role also.

I dont think that is related, some reports suggest it lowers test levels, by how much, I haven't looked into it, but IMO I dont believe bustin a nut more offend will effect your lefts that drastically. start eating more, and make sure you get enough sleep

How much sleep is enough?

I'm not trying to be rude by any means but are you joking around? I can't tell if you are or not by this post and the other you posted asking about your routine.
It doesn't sound like you have the fundamentals down at all and really need to research more on your own about nutrition, sleep, and general training principles.

^ not joking but thanks for throwing that at me -_-
asking for help is how u learn

Where should I research? I read workout books all the time but I've never read up on things like this... I only ask about specific things pertaining me

Think of it in terms of algebra: you can learn how to do a specific problem or you can learn the principles and then apply them to all problems. Which one will be more effective? The latter will be, obviously.

So what would be the principle behind this? An my other post about my workouts

You're freaking out about 1 ****ty session; it happens. Trial and error is 90% of BBing because we're only looking at everything on paper. Keep trying new things and realize it's all a test. If you're looking at strength, go for 5x5.

ok first of all u said u added squats. that means ur gonna have to eat more than you are now. your GPP probably isnt up there. When i use to train only bench and biceps my bench gains were great ( i was new to the game).
Eat more. SLowly work more volume into your routine, workout at night when your rested hit ur lift drink a shake do another meal hit the sack.

I'd take a few days off completely then start on a new routine....
I give a f**K!!
11-20-2009, 08:38 AM
Im going with that ^ im skipping training today then starting a new routine as of monday and thx btw RODJA savin me from ignorance all the time
11-20-2009, 09:32 AM
This is your answer to your other post. You have crashed already so your routine is the problem. You argued that 5x5 didn't seem like it was for you but you haven't tried it yet. How about try it for a couple months EXACTLY as layed out and see what happens.
12-02-2009, 10:47 AM
ive already started the 5x5 exactly as layed out.... it seems to be working cuz ive got a sore chest.... but will my arms grow at all during this? im eating alot more also btw... i just wanna up my arm size by a few inches...

whats bb-type routine?
12-02-2009, 11:38 AM
And will it be affected if i start it after three months? the recommended is 3 for 5x5

And you wonder why people fry you for not using Google?!
One bodypart per week. I.E. Mon. Back & Bi's Tues off Wed off Thursday shoulders Friday legs Saturday Chest & Tri's. Cardio in there at your discretion. Or not. Depending on your goals.
