Does anyone have any decent articles or even books on flexibility? I've never seen any good info on it besides a handful of stretching routines.

I skipped the gym today because my knee felt funny and I used it as an excuse to be lazy, and I'm seriously fucking depressed right now.

Looking for some feedback. Nothing big compared to most of you but this was PR for me.

 

190lb x 5 (2nd set out of 3)

Good set. You can try to get more speed out of the bottom.

It's interesting, based on the first rep I'd have said you were just warming up and you could have done 10 more easy. Then each successive rep slowed down and it was clear you were grinding. All my reps look a lot more even (with the first rep not looking nearly as easy as yours did)

rjbman: do you usually train at the ARC? No creep just immediately recognized the wall of squat racks haha

Well, it seems like he paused in the hole a little bit longer every rep.

Think I am getting weaker, especially in the bench. Cancer or eat too little?

Holy shit, that feel when you hit your goal weight on your cut (173) only to realize that (1) you have no muscle and (2) you still need to lose another 5 lbs fuck my life

Imagine structuring your entire life around one thing like that, and then not being able to do it.

Skiers pretty regularly come back from serious knee injuries, hopefully he'll be all right.

Could also be:

 

- Bad sleep

- Just generally higher stress every day

- Being burnt out from pushing the intensity for too long - I've had this happen. I was simply working too close to failure and my max all the time. deload and work back up. first weeks should be very easy to let you recover and get that supercompensation "slingshot" effect of strength. if you take a lot of weight of the bar, you could maybe push the volume a bit and then taper the volume as you approach your previous best. The increased volume at lighter weights would lead to more reps with good technique possibly improving you technique while still being enough workload to lead to some hypertrophy.
