I wonder if failing in press and bench this week were simply because I started squatting again. Even though squat hits mostly different muscles I still won't have the same level of energy to direct to press/bench if I squat first. Also, sleeping pretty poorly this week might have something to do with it.
Well, from now on, I'll add 1.25 kg / 2.5 lb to press and bench and see what happens.
Biking to work today was pure torture. 3 inches of ice, snow and iced snow on the roads combined with windy weather and exhausted legs from yesterdays squatting made pedaling pretty damn hard.
Avg speed was 15.5 km/h instead of 22-24 km/h I've used to on dry asphalt.
Sometimes I think bench and OHP are also the hardest to 'get' when it comes to maintaining tight form. Lately I've felt like I've really been getting my upper back solid as sh*t in my bench, and it makes it much easier... Fairly sure it actually shortens the ROM when you get it right.
PWO-shake i.e whey and maltodextrin mixed w skimmed milk
Ice cream or something
Fish oil caps
That's what I typically eat every work-day (excluding PWO-shake on rest-days).
On weekends I eat similar breakfast and before-bed-meal but for lunch and dinner I eat mostly out, ranging from burger places / pizza joints to fine dining.
Also, last 3 weeks my daily averages have been ~3050 kcals and 27/42/31 macros (p/c/f).
27% of total energy equals 205 g of protein/day.
I've been trying to aim for much lower carbs myself. Of course, for me this is largely because I saw higher than normal blood glucose levels in recent tests. I'd say add more fat and reduce carbs if possible.
