I'm 5'7, 140 pounds, and about 7% bodyfat. I started Grey Skull Linear Progression around 8 weeks ago and i've had football 6 days a week for the last 3 months. For practice it isn't too intense but we do 5 mins of high intensity conditioning atleast every second practice. Luckily football ends in a week so i will be able to focus more on lifting.
I eat around 300 calories over maintenance every day and thats accounting for practice, i also add a bit more on the conditioning days.
I've found my lifts were a bit hard to progress on but the last week or so i've really notice a drop in performance. Just last week i squatted 175x11, pressed 80x11. Todays workout i squatted 185x7, pressed 85x5. And these are my sets to failure...
I'm also wondering if a lot of homework in the last week could play a part in stress and lack of recovery.
Should i take a week off and reset my lifts, or what?
