Lately I have been having trouble with my workout, I don't know why, but I tend to lose strength, sometimes 20lbs in one lift a day...

My routine is...Monday-Squats 5 sets,Seated Military Press 3 sets,Close handed Bench press 5 sets, Curls and Tricep extensions Supersetx4, and Calf Raises 3 sets

Tuesday I run and do 200 sit ups and a few other things
Wednsday I do deadlift 3 sets, Lunges 3 sets, Pulldowns 3 sets, Rows 3 sets, Dumbell Side Raises 3 sets, and Butterfly 3 sets

Thursday I do the same as Tuesday
Friday I do 3 sets of Jump shrugs, 3 sets of Leg extensions, 3 sets of leg curls, Bench press 5 sets, Tricep extensions and curls

Most of my problems are in squats, bench and press
My squat came down from almost 400lbs to barely even 200lbs
My bench came from 160 to barely doing 120
My press came from 200lbs to 100
I just got to be able to deadlift 300lbs a few weeks ago and can't even do 250lbs now, its asif my muscles are breaking appart day by day and the life is being sucked right out of me! :confused: Ive been working out every week 3 days a week as hard as I can push myself but its of no use!

Could it be my weight, I weigh 130lbs
Could it be my diet, I eat a bowl of canned ravioli and a energy bar for breakfast, then 2 sandwidches for lunch, and when I get home from school Ill eat everything I see, I take Whey protein supplements after every workout and have been feeling extremely exhausted lately, any help will be appreciated! :boxing:

I am wanting to bench 270lbs in about 16 or so weeks, squat 400lbs again and deadlift 400 also, any tips on how to get back on my feet and explode in strength, any better W/os?

You need to break up your workouts. Can't do tri's and biceps on the same day. Doin all that on the same day makes it hard for your body to build your muscles back up. Do curls and squats one day, then bench and tri's the next for 5 days then take 2 off. I do 6 sets of everything and when i can't get one more rep i force out 2 more. This helped me gain alot of muscle, arms went from 12-15 in 6 months

If you box there are still things you can do. You just can't lift that much. If all you care about is lifting, then check out Arnold 's workout. He worked out 4 hours every day.

Yep, he was always working out. Of course he had alot of steroids to go along with it.

You over training like everyone has said. And if you over work your muscle it dies. Plus I have a strange feeling that you masturbating alot, that zaps your whole energy right there. So do less of everything and built up your stamina. and lift alot with little weights. You doing to much mass. Be easy. Oh yeah, if you going to do all that, you've to eat more than what you said you eat, Food is fuel.

I think you should get some rest also. I used to lift a lot of weights when I was younger and sometimes when you do to much your body just gets tired. I found out that if you skip a day or two of working out, and just let your body rest, then you come back stronger than before...

I had that problem once. I just kept doing chest everyday for like 2 weeks straight. I just rested a few days. Usually you can't workout everyday and not expect your performance to slack off. Your muscles need rest after they rip.

Im going to change to another routine...

Its like this...Back,Chest,Arms,Legs
Then next week Chest,Arms,Back,Legs
Arms,Back,Chest,Legs Then...so on so on, each day takes about 45 minutes, not a very long or hard Workout but it worked for me once, it'll work again.

I'm going to take weightlifting next semester of school, Ill get my bench near 240, deadlift and squat to 400 before then, Ill also recurl 130lbs :D

About the Arnold workout, will it only work with steroids? Cuz steroids are t3h Ub@h Ghayn3ss!!!!
Whats the use in them, the olypic people who DONT take em are much much stronger than the "WSM" who do. Just this year the most any WSM (Zydrunas Savickas) could bench was 600lbs, and squat 903, but the Olympic strongest squated over 1200lbs and benched about the same, NO STEROIDS! Useless! :boxing: !Stay Natural!
