    Default Competitive Lifter Training Logs.

    I've been training as a competitive lifter for the past few years, and I've noticed that my progress has plateaued recently. I've been following a strict program and have been consistent with my training, but I feel like I may need to switch things up to see some gains again.

    This is more of a statement than a question, but I will take a crack at it.

    Have you ever run a NLP? If not, do the program and see what happens.

    If you have been training consistently (rarely missing training sessions and not program hopping), training with correct form, eating, sleeping, resting at least 5 minutes between sets, making appropriate weight increases, and the programming that you have been adhering to has been yielding results up until this point, then make the smallest possible individual change that you can make to the program to stimulate a strength adaptation. Ask yourself, "Do I need more recovery or do I need more stress to drive the strength adaptation?"

    Generally speaking: If you feel beat to hell, everything hurts, and your sleep is suddenly terrible, then it is a recovery issue. If you feel fine, life/training is going along splendidly and all of a sudden you start failing reps, then you most likely need more stress. Treat your programming like a science experiment. Make one change and see what happens. If you are successful, great, you made progress. If you fail, great, you learned something, and it is only one change so it can easily be walked back. I hope this helps and good luck with your training.
