Sleep has always my differentiator between making gains or not. When I don't sleep well I also seem to be more bloated.
I did deadlifts for the first time in almost 8 months last night and pulled 4 plates pretty easily (form was choppy though, hips rose too early, but back stayed flat, double overhand hook...
