Getting weaker isn't going to be fixed by a new playlist, lol. Sounds to me like his CNS is not keeping up with his training, but this is rarely based purely on training alone. I bet we'll find out that there's more here than meets the eye.
I do love me some youtube motivation though! I've resorted to that on many occasions where I just couldn't get going.
