Strength decline? Check!

It’s no secret that if you go on a “loss” diet, that strength is going to decline. Sure enough, it seems to be happening. From the slower bench/squat/deadlift sessions, to today where I just couldn’t hit the reps. Worked as hard as I could, but it’s just not there.

Probably a combination of the restricted diet and the cessation of creatine supplementation.

But it’s all good. It’s just how it goes. Fat loss is the primary consideration.

That said, I did make some other changes. The big one? Reduction of reps along with increase in weight. Why? Simple… I hate ultra-high-rep work. đŸ™‚ Plus, I don’t think I get as much out of it. Yes, it does really flush the area with blood, but that’s not always what I want. So, making some adjustments and we’ll see how it goes.
