I think we've all had those days where you just don't feel like you have much energy. Last night I only got about 3-4 hours of sleep, and on top of that I probably didn't eat as much as I should have, but I still ate pretty heartily. I didn't get a chacne to workout until about an hour ago (11pm) and I was already tired and distracted. Today was squats 5x5 incline BP 5x5 bent over rows 5x5 tricep extensions 2x15 incline twist situps 5x10 I usually try to get 10lbs more on squats than I do on Monday, but lately I've been getting closer and closer to my limits, and probably should slow down to +5lbs/week to my squat. I started out and I was having a difficult time going down far enough, so I dropped 5lbs lower than I was supposed to be (to add 5 lbs), so I was on-par with Monday's workout. I usually add +10lbs every set until I get up to my approximate 5RM on my last (5th set.) Well on my 5th set I decided to add 15lbs instead of 10lbs just so I could say I beat Monday's weights. Bad move. I did my first two reps with shitty fucking form, barely got back up. Third time down I start to come back up and it's really really shaky with really bad form. Regardless I went back down and kept my back straight and went down past parallell, not quite ass to the grass. I decided to go for it against my best judgement, and IMO that was a poor decision without having a spot and not having safety pins in my squat rack. I started to push up and my legs were trembling letting me know there was no way this weight was going up. I squatted back down to regain my balance and I tried again. Holy motherfuck, it was a 1 on 1 battle with gravity. I struggled and I started to black out and get dizzy/go numb. I pushed even harder until I could to start to feel convulsions and I puked. I gave up and fell backwards dropping the weight. So in the end I got out of this one with only a cracked cement floor, and a bruised arm and ego. So my question is, on those days where you know you just don't have enough energy to get through your workout, what do you do? Save it for the next day? Lift lighter? Skip it altogether? I'm still pretty shaky. I got cleaned up and finished up the rest of my workout without too much trouble without adding any extra weight over last week's routine.
