Congrats on breaking through your plateau - but you've seemed to hit another one. That's the training life story, it seems.jackthestrat wrote:I want to thank all of you folks for the input in this thread.
I did take a break as suggested, then went through a significant reset, and worked myself beyond the strength levels from the initial post.
My numbers now put me into the "Intermediate" strength standards on exrx.net. I'm also finding it very, very difficult to recover enough within the recovery window unless I eat a ridiculous amount of food. And I don't want to gain much more body fat than I am currently carrying around.
Some of the other members have done 5-3-1, but not me. Hopefully, they will chime in.
