    Just an off/bad day?


    I'm hoping this was just an off day or something, I was squatting the same weight that I was able to squat last week for two reps (I'm doing a push/pull/legs 3 day split) and going down for the first rep it was almost like my legs gave out. I don't know if I just wasn't focused on the lift or what so after rolling it off my back I try the lift again and half way down I feel like I couldn't stand back up. I have no idea what the problem was, I felt weak as hell and it drove me crazy. I used the pissed off motivation to set a new PR on leg press but i just have no idea what the deal was with squats. Anyone ever have something like this?

    Ya, it could just be an off day. There's a lot of variables though. Sleep, pre-WO meal, less focus from something going on in life, etc... Sometimes you just aren't "with it" I guess.

    I'd shake it off and hit it hard next leg day and see how it goes.

    Probably just a bad workout. We all have them. Don't let it get to you and try again next week.

    Like everyone has been saying, you could have just had a "off" day. We all have those and they hit at random times - I usually have one every week or two, and cannot predict which session it will happen in. But they happen, and after that, the next session is fine, and it was like, "ok, so moving on." Don't dwell on it. Just endeavour to keep making each session as hard and as intense as you possibly can.

    I figured that's what it was and I'm glad I'm not the only one now it just seems like I'm little paranoid though to try it cause I don't feel like getting pinned under the bar again...guess ill just have to push through it though right...shock therapy or something like that right lol
