In other words, when you add weight to an exercise then your reps crash. I'd try a rep progression scheme before you add weight to the bar and see if that works better for you.

An example:

Week 1-
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
5 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
5 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

Week 2-
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
5 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
6 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

Week 3-
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
6 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
6 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

Week 4-
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
6 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
7 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

Week 5-
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
7 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
7 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

Week 6-
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
7 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
8 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

Week 7-
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
8 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
8 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

Week 8-
Add 10 lbs to the lift and start over. . .
5 reps @ 50% (1st warm up)
5 reps @ 75% (2nd warm up)
5 reps @ 85% (3rd warm up)
5 reps @ 100% (1st work set)
5 reps @ 100% (2nd work set)

There are many more forms of rep progression, but this one will fit right into what you are currently doing.

Thanks for that Off Road, kind of a late response if you're still reading this, I know, I apologize.
Probably thought I just ignored you.


Its actually corrected itself for the time being now, but if it happens again I'll certainly try what you suggested.

As you say it'll fit perfectly into what I'm already doing.


Thanks man.

I think looking at it now, it was simply just, an off day.

And as soldier said, they happen, and I need to remember to take that into account.


I think theres allot to be said for mood and positive/negative attitude that particular day too.
