for two weeks I have been doing Bulgarian inspired set rep scheme- working up to a daily PR and then some drop off sets. I've been doing squats 6x a week, bench press and pull ups twice a week, military press, cnj, snatch, push press etc. once a week. In this two weeks I have absolutely shattered every possible PR, the progress was just great.
But of course it ended pretty soon- since Sunday I've been feeling pretty down, no motivation and my lifts have been decreasing which is all pretty depressing... Now, I've read about this happening and every time it says to just work through it. The thing is my legs don't really feel shut down, at least not much more than before. I feel just as strong, except... washed out, without any motivation. Also, I have developed a bit of a cold in these days so I am not even sure if this is really what is happening to me. How can I be sure?
Now, my question is directed to the people who already went through this- do you really get out stronger? And when you get out can you do the same volume and progress just as you did before this happened, or do you have to increase the volume to improve. Because, if you have to increase the volume, than I guess this will happen again... and if that is true, than what is the point?
Oh, and if you're thinking about under recovery I don't think that is the case, since I am eating a lot (3700-4200kCal, I have 80kg), sleeping a lot (9-11h) and this things haven't changed recently.
I hope I was understood,
