Can't seem to progressively overload

bprofit72 3 years ago in Workouts updated by andy 3 years ago 2

Hi Marc,


I've been training consistently for 2 1/2 to 3 years and I haven't been able to increase the weight I use to progressively overload for a while now, so my gains have stalled.  I'm a smaller guy (5' 8" at 142 lbs) and I only manage to bench 145 lbs and squat 180 lbs for 6 reps.  I workout at home, so I don't have a spotter or a full cage with pins if I fail, making it difficult to train beyond failure.  I've tried drop sets and things like that, but I still can't increase me weight.  Any thoughts or ideas?


Thanks for you time.

You are at 145 for 6....Go to 155 and hit 4 reps and do it until you can get 6. Once you get 6, go to 155...and so on. You have to alter things
