    Trouble With Progressive Overload?

    I have been lifting for two years, but I have started to count calories and watch my macros May 2019. Often times when I am able to increase my rep(s) for the first exercise, my rep count for the second exercise would suffer. I have noticed this happen a lot especially on chest days. I would do flat bench into incline DB bench. Should I not worry too much on this and just look at the long run? I have been gaining in the long run but whenever this happens it annoys me lol.

    Name of the game.

    You increased the workload on the first exercise, so fatigue goes up.

    But that doesn’t make the subsequent work any less effective.

    It’s all about the long haul not 1 or 2 workouts.
