Do rest of your workout tend to suffer after you do maximal or near maximal lifting on a certain lift? After I have picked up on maximal lifting every week for BP, rest of my lifts seems to be suffering alot. Should I ease back up on maximal lifting or ease back on the other exercises. For example...... My max is 150 and I do 3 reps of 140 and about 3 or 4 sets of that. Is that too much for maximal lifting? and also I used to be able to do 6 rep BW dips of 3 sets pretty easily, but now I seem to struggle with them after I do benching. Not to mention my military press haven't made any gains either.
