Long story short i didn't get much sleep and body was feeling kind of shit today for bench press. I did my warmups and went to go for a decently easy 200x5. I just did three and racked the weight and decided I should try again tomorrow. I plan to eat a lot of food and rest and get a goodnights sleep. My question is had anybody had a day like this and cane back and smashed the weights the next day? My all time best bp is 255x5 so I know it's not something I haven't done before, just don't know whats up with me.
Certainly, we have all been there. Maybe you should take a couple days off. Get focused again.
It happens all the time. Some days you just have a perfect storm of shit and you can't work out at all. Last week I pulled 405 for reps, and yesterday I could barely do 315. Shit just happens sometimes, all you can do is eat and sleep well and try again.
Completely normal. Some days you fuck up, you're tired, you haven't eaten enough, etc. You'd be surprised how much stronger you can be once your rested, hydrated, and have eaten well.

Happened to me yesterday, my 1rm is 265 and I do 2pl8 for reps. Yesterday I warmed up with 1pl8, did one 8 rep set of 2pl8 and on the second set I failed on number 8. Worst part is, I didn't expect to fail so I missed the safety on one side and had to roll the bar over my stomach and legs onto the floor which was both uncomfortable and embarrassing.
Moral of the story is, it happens to everyone, just do better next time.
