Iam trying to determine what's going on in my workouts... Some days, say when I'm doing incline presses, I can rep out 11 or 12 reps, and on other days, 5 or 6 reps...with the same weight!! This is doing the same form and cadence. Obviously, the exercise I do prior to this example greatly affects it. i.e. flat bench as opposed to mil presses... All my rest periods are 90 seconds, which I find optimal for myself. Usually a 3 minute rest between exercises. Question: is the quality and types of food I eat the previous day greatly effect strength and energy levels? The meal/supp's prior to my workout? Surely, it's been hot as hell here lately, and that would play a role. But by THAT much? I usually do an AM workout, but not always. Sometimes an AM/PM split. My preworkout meals, maybe bowl of oatmeal and banana, or banana and peanut butter toast, an hour later, cup of 1% milk, 1 1/2 scoop protein with flax seed and hemp seed, half a banana or a few fresh strawberries, creatine and glutamine, sometime a couple of NO caps, large glass if water pre, during and post workout, followed by another shake. Anyone have a view on this?
