Thanks big_swede, I might try dropping 10lbs and go for 3x5 with 190 this Friday and see how that goes. I guess I don't have to go balls to the wall everytime.

Guess I had my first crappy session today. Other days I felt somewhat tired and not as motivated, but today just sucked. Drank a 5-hour energy before, thinkin that would help but, No. Tried motivating myself and thinking about my problems to get me going... Nothing was working. Time to rest for the weekend and hope Monday is better.

Been thinking about Friday's workout and I figured...

A. I just had a bad day.

Or

B. I been trying to progress too quickly.

I don't want to back pedal but, I been thinking about something I hear Mark Bell say; "Your last rep should look like your first rep." And sometimes it doesnt. I want to progress and lift big, though I need to remember I'm 'Training - I'm working to get good at the exercise and need to get good at lifting a certin amount of weight. Like Reg Park says, Its about feeling empowered and confident and making your lifts. I don't know if I'm starting to beat myself down on certin lifts trying to progress or not. Got more thinking to do for Mondays session.

I'm thinking this is my problem right here. I'm going to reset weights on Monday and work more on form with a slower progression.

I wouldn't back pedal. Get in the habit of stopping sets when your reps start to feel floppy. I never perform sloppy reps.

I seen several men over the years get in patterns of deloading or cycling down on weight every time they have an off day. This usually leads down a slippery slope.

Over the years 1 out of 4 of my workouts were simply sub-par. Regardless of the outcome, we need to continue to focus on the things we can control, meaning the effort, improving form, nutrition, etc. If we do this, results will come in the long run.

I doubt that's the case. With that said, if you start to feel beat up, take a week off. It's ok to lick your wounds every now and then.

How's your diet and nutrition been lately?

I hate to jump in your log and give you unsolicited advice. I just don't want to see you hit that cycle of back pedaling when an off day happens.
