so uh idk where to post this but my workouts seem to be $h1t? i move up from 3 sets of 10 on lets say 135 to 3 sets of 10 on 145 in 6 weeks and people say it should take 4 - my progress is like this on most exercises - my diet is crappy but i maintain my weight switch up my programs drink water get good sleep stretch and stuff so idk why it takes so long to move up.

Ideally, this post should be in it's own thread in the General section, and I probably have the authorities to move it but I'm don't know how. Moderator school wasn't very in depth.

To answer your question, there are lots of reasons why someone's progress is slower than what they think is normal. The main reason is genetics. Not everyone brings the same gifts to the table. Next is training. Training needs to be appropriate for your stage and create a stimulus appropriate for you current specific needs. Nutrition, stress management, sleep affect your recovery and your ability to make use of your training effort. Drugs, alcohol, tobacco can also have negative impacts. The next issue is training stage itself. Starting out most make rapid progress and as you get closer to your genetic limit your progress slows down.

If I could make 10 lbs improvement in 6 weeks, I would be delighted. Have you tried a program like 5/3/1? I mentioned several factors, genetics is the only one you can't affect. Do you have any concerns about how to improve the others?

well my deadlift and squat are weak because all ive had for a leg workout for the past year is leg press leg curls leg extensions and calf raises due to a herniated disc that i finally got fixed - how much strength will i lose with 3 months out of the gym? how fast will i get the strength back?
