As long as you are making progress in some form or another even if it seems like it's slow....you are still way ahead of 80% of the people you see in the gym!
So true Rmtt. I will add that it’s not good to 1rm every week. Work volume and percentages and only 1rm every 4-6 weeks. If you don’t track your weekly numbers you should at least calculate your percentages for your “big lifts”. This will really help with strength numbers. There is a lot of variation you can do by working percentages. I know most ppl don’t use this methodology but that is what separates those who “workout” and those of us who “train”. Aaaand the numbers never lie, you will see gains this way.
