Have you had an off week or half intensity week within the past 5-6 weeks?

I took 9 days off last mo w/a couple runs. I am not sure if I frying my CNS or if it is nutrition related, or if I am just being a sissy.I don't think it is nutrition because I am leaner my B/P,HR have gone down and I don't feel tired. I think I might have to add ME work. This is my first exposure to O lifts.thanks for the reply

If you are frying your CNS, that's the most likely explanation. Even when you're feeling good your CNS can be toasted. Rest generally cures everything.

If it's not that then it's because you need more specific work with those lifts.

thanks for your advice. Do you know of any tests to check your CNS out.I will attempt more specific work, I sure like most I get real nervous about "resting"

Ok, on the resting topic, remember... the workout is what stresses your body and *damages it* (in a sense). The REST is what allows your body to rebuild itself stronger than it was before, and makes you stronger/faster/better.

All work and no rest makes for wasted pain and no gain.

Patrick, I heard of this test to see if your CNS is stressed. Extend your hand out, palm up, fingers extended and together. Now, slowly curl your index finger back as far as you can. Supposedly, if your finger curls back smoothly, your CNS is ok. If it jerks and shakes, then you have fried your CNS. I can't remember where I heard this, so you can take it with a grain of salt or a block of salt. Maybe some of the other X/F members have heard about it.
