So my compound push movements aren’t raising and even going down. I’ve been at the same bench weight for months. Usually do 225x12x3. On a good day I could do 15, bad day 10. Haven’t been able to go above 11 in weeks.

Eating my cut diet + more snacks in between to the point I’m gaining weight. All my other lifts are going up, just not bench, incline bench, and OHP.
Change it up
Doing the same thing for any length of time is silly
Your numbers show it

I have been the last few weeks. I thought maybe it could also be because of weight loss. Strength could go down if you exist as a lighter human for long enough. I’m going back up in weight right now but still 20lbs lighter than I was a year ago.

Yea I'm trying to progressively overload and add a little bit every few weeks and on every other lift I've been able to do it.

Add some weight and I can still do my goal 10 reps with 1-2 reps in reserve but for bench if I add any weight I just fail before 10 reps and haven't had a day with 12 much less 15 in a while.

Id take tada at least 2 hrs before training
Roger that!

Also, after I logged off last night, the woman asked if I wanted more (duh), and holy shit. Went from chillin to diamond in seconds. Pounded her out and felt 100% fine after. No flushing, dizziness, or any other issue.

I usually have morning wood, same as usual today, but it stuck around for quite a while. Now I get why @Phil NJ is typically doing it EOD.

This morning my hotel lobby had a cabin crew from either KLM or Lufthansa. All 10/10 blondes about 3-4 inches taller than average.

No one says your sets have to be 10 reps if you’re overloading imo

Same observation about Brazil as Colombia:
The women here are FASTIDIOUS about their looks and dress. No middle/upper class Brazilian woman would be caught dead in public in β€œAmerican casual” clothes. When they go out they dress up like an American woman would for something like an important event even though it might just be dinner.

And they LIVE for social media. There are several photographers with nice cameras lurking around scenic places and basically they just pose women and send them the photos. Crazy.

Facts.

I love the polish those women have. The stabby and throwy bits are what I don't care for.

EDIT: I wish my uncle were still around. He lived in Brasil and was surrounded by these women all day and night.

It's too bad we live in a country where wearing a skirt or a dress is considered "old fashioned" rather than classy.

Seems fucking sick in the head to live for social.

My friend from Brazil also said that the way guys approach girls there in bars/clubs would be considered creepy aggressive in the US
