    Hey Joe
    As you have already noticed from all these questions,i am struggling a bit in the training side
    But things are slighty starting to get better
    But,one thing is not
    Progressive overload
    I mean,i am training pretty hard where i have to train hard,but still my loads aren’t progressing at all
    This is getting really frustrating and demotivating at the same time
    Can you give a reason why this might happening
    Thanks

    Yeah,understood what you said
    For me recovery hasn’t really been the problem,everything is pretty good with food and most of the time sleep
    But as i see it i can honestly say that i train pretty hard
    My form(without trying to brag) has been almost near perfect in almost every exercise
    Having learned stuff such as bracing etc for you has helped a ton on improving my form
    Now regarding on how far i take my working sets,i can say that i try pretty hard to come near or to full failure(with good form)
    I train by myself and i rarely have a spotter because most of the times i visit my gym on none-crowded hours
    As far as volume goes,i am a low volume fan,and i usually rest a lot from warm up to working sets
    I do activations before every workout alongside warm up sets for each exercise
    Hope this aswered some of your questiomarks about my training
    Is there anything more you can think that might be causing the problem
    Would really appreciate it
    Thanks joe
