so this week ive been trying out a 5 day split as opposed to my usual four day. i just started deadlifting again and its too much to try to break a DL PR then go do a set to failure then go do 3-4 sets of benching right afterwards...yea talk about CNS fatigue. so anyway after i did my DL stuff i was fucking gassed, hit 405x2 the week before so i got a little cocky and did 405x1 then tried 455x1 and barely got 1 side off the ground. after that i went back to 405 and could only hit 1 so then i went down to 315 and hit 9. i caught my breath and went to the bench and even warming up with 135 felt much harder, i went up to my next warm up of 185x5 and i knew there was no way i going to beat last weeks numbers so i just said fuck it lemme try out a 5-day for once and see how this goes. so far so good, granted its only been 2 training days with legs coming up tommorrow (wed). today though chest felt great. i did much better on the bench, hit 225x7 on my own then got some slight assistance on 8 but number 9 was majority spot. after each set of bench id jump on the pec-deck to fatigue the chest because i was feeling my triceps give out first. just from super-setting between that my chest was dead. i did some Hammer Strength incline and then i was like wow, my chest is dead and ive only been here under 45 minutes. it was weird being close to done so fast so i just went and did some more pec-deck work and then called it a day. im gonna try to go hard on squats tomorrow, i think ive improved my shoulders so that i can use a slimmer grip and hopefully ill be able to put up some nice weight. ive been doing leg presses for the last month or so anyways so i feel like going toe to toe with the beast again. i also wanna blast some RDLs i felt kinda good when a guy who i thought was bigger than me or at least in the same area had to do 90lbs less than me on em. i plan on going at least 245x10 on my first set, ill probaly hit 12 and go up another 10 lbs just for shits. only thing im slightly concerned with is getting CNS fatigue from doing 5 heavy compounds a week. its what ive been doing (even with the 4 days) and honestly ive been feeling a bit more tiredsome lately i dont know if its all in my head or if its just a psyche thing from outside stress factors - theres been a lot lately which have had me less enthusiastic than usual.
