Re: hitting a wall

I would lean toward you are doing way too much different stuff.

If you really want to focus on strength, drop the MetCons.

Squat three times a week is fine, but not three days in a row.

Take another rest day. "As frequently as you can" doesn't work in any situation, really. I understand the frustration of missing chunks of time, but trying to cram two weeks into one is a recipe for disaster eventually.

Now that you can see your programming is leaning on the side of scattershot, find something you like and can stick to (probably a linear progression at this point I'd guess), reset your lifts (I'd say ~75-80% of 1RM if you are doing a program of sets of 5) and work from there.
