Feeling Weak and Overtraining

TAGS: molly edwards, overtraining, powerlifting

Everything has been feeling super heavy these days and it sucks pretty bad. Hopefully this doesn't last much longer. I think my CNS is trying to adjust since I have been squatting lately. I don't know exactly, but I do know this has to stop soon. Other than 135 pounds feeling like 315 - I feel great. Knee is doing well and shoulders are getting better. Onto whatever the heck I did over the weekend...
