High-Frequency Lifting, Intermittent Fasting & The Ketogenic Diet

Stop Right There

Sets x Reps x Weight in Pounds

Bodyweight: 209

Bench Press: 1 x 3 x 265

Weighted Pull Ups: 3, 2 x 50

Today everything just felt heavy and sloooow.

I knew I was in trouble when I did 245 for a double on my bench warm up.  I jumped to 265 for my one and only set and nearly missed the third rep.

In the past I would have kept going until I missed, then make up for it in volume with a lot of back-off sets.  Then I’d keep trying to push the linear progression in follow-on workouts until either 1) I burned out and/or 2) I hurt myself.

Instead, I’ve recently been trying to “listen” and thus decided to just stop right there.

Pull ups weren’t much better and I did the same.

I’ll try eating and sleeping a bit more the next couple days, see if that helps.

One of the things I’ve noticed dabbling with high-frequency lifting seems to be that a greater variation in workouts… i.e., there are a lot more crappy days.  The trade-off is that you’ll ultimately progress further, faster.
