    Power deficit

    September 10, 2019, 4:30 am

    Hey Scott & community!

    Yesterday i started the C&R program, workout was great but i did not get it done completly.
    My issue is i feel powerless after a few sets. For example i did the overhead press fine the first two sets overload & cheat reps and after that there is a point where i just cannot get the weights moved for more than 4 or 5 reps.

    Or after doing the dips i was so fatigued that i could only move 12kg dumbbells in the next set while under normal conditions 18 or 20kg are where i am at.

     

    So the question is: is it okay to use significant lower weights or should i extend the rest time between exercises? My energy storage depletes so fast ...

     

    I am determined to get the most out of the workout as possible!

    @d4ni3l_b34st Hey man!

     

    When you first start Cheat & Recover, yes you are going to fatigue a lot and you are going to fatigue fast. Because you aren't just doing regular drop sets. You're litterally moving more weight than you can handle and it is going to tax your CNS big time. I'm not too worried if you have to lift less weight for the recover sets - the main thing is that you can still lifting heavier than normal and really overloading on your cheat sets.

     

    But also, after doing the program for a while, you probably noticed that your body adjusted a bit more and now you're able to lift more weight?!

     

    Hope you've been enjoying the program!
