That's normal -- it's called fatigue.
Go up to a heavier weight on your second set, not fourth
It generally means cutting volume for a week or so. Allows your body to recover etc -- particularly important for connective tissues, which adapt slower to increasing stress compared to muscle.
I have to start posting more often again.
I generally continue when I'm ready; but I estimate it's 3-5 minutes for heavy, compound sets and less than 1-1.5 minutes for isolation work.
Lower your repetition ranges on the larger, compound lifts. Is it grouped like that because you're supersetting? If so, don't.
Also, try cutting down on volume and increasing the resistance level.
It depends upon what you're used to. I prefer working out in the late afternoon, after work.
Here's my two cents: there was a time where I would worry about working out during travel. Then, I realized, as others have already noted, it's actually more beneficial - physically and mentally - to...
First, you don't need a spotter for squats.
Second, don't do legs every other day. You need rest to grow.
Third, wall sits as a warmup for squats doesn't make any sense. Do some lightweight or...
I did chest on Mondays and back on Tuesdays for years. It got a bit stressful on the joints once I started pushing into the heavier resistance levels, but otherwise was fine.
High volume with isolation exercises: lateral raises etc.
Keep in mind that the arms are also utilized intensely with compound movements -- i.e. triceps during chest and biceps during back. With this in mind, if you think it's too much volume and your...
Chest twice, everything else once. Calves twice and abs 3-4 times.
Try the EZ bar, but more likely you're have to just stay away for awhile and/or substitute in another exercise that doesn't irritate as much.
There's no way to pinpoint how it happens. Injuries are a fact of life in this sport. Just let it heal and move on.
You're having trouble clearing the knees on the descent - a very common issue. Don't bend the knees until the bar has passed them.
I group sets of the same exercise together. This is the conventional and mainstream way of lifting. I'm not interested in circuit training.
DB row, if any. I'm not a fan of BB row and it's never really worked for me. T-bar rows quite often, though.
No - super sets are simply one approach, but just because you're lifting more in a shorter period of time doesn't mean you're making faster progress. In fact, supersets can pre-fatigue and hinder...
