Great job on the weight loss. It really does seem like you have turned your life around. Do you just do all your own programming? Or how did you decide to do the type of lifts/reps/sets you are doing? Do you just go by feel?
I always used to be on specific programs. I would be on some new deadlift program, some new squat program, something. However, I Always found that a specific program didn’t take into account life factors such as sleep, food, bodyweight fluctuations, and hormone level fluctuations. Ya know? Or, your girlfriend breaking up with you so you stay up until 5am. That type of stuff lol. That stuff can, and will, take an effect on your training at some point.
Since I am not trying to compete in any sport necessarily I See no reason to stress about going word for word from a program. I still set goals and whatnot, but, I don’t feel the stress of a program.
