I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment What should I do if I can just barely complete the lift sets?
Mastering a weight for more reps, then adding weight and expecting less reps, has worked well for me when I'm not 100% confident in the lift.

comment what's the reality that keeps progressive strength training from being constant?
If I were a purely strength athlete, then the story might involve a 2.5xBW deadlift or 400 pound squat when injury/vacation/whatever intervened, but those curveballs would be coming almost no matter what. It takes tremendous prioritization of strength over other things in life to overcome those obstacles. If you do, then you start bumping into your genetic maximum, and you get to play with advanced programming.

comment what's the reality that keeps progressive strength training from being constant?
I'm not a great example because lifting is usually secondary to my other sports, but I had a >2xBW deadlift and almost 300 pound back squat for a few months in 2013 before a latent hip mobility problem metastasized into an injury and I had to take a few months off. Then I moved. I worked all the way back up with novice programming while not playing any other sports. Then I found my other sports again, and my lifts went to intermediate programming, regressing in some places and slowly advancing in others. Then I went on a multiweek vacation, my lifts dropped off a cliff, and so on, and so on.

I don't think I can answer that intelligently until I hear your chain of reasoning for why they wouldn't. On any kind of programming, novice or intermediate or advanced, you're going to take two steps forward and three steps back sometimes. The response is just to get right back on the horse, which for someone on the intermediate level would usually mean a few weeks of novice programming (maybe only on some lifts) and then returning to intermediate programming a few steps back from their peak.

comment How come fat people can't float?
This is off topic. Also, we know empirically that fat people have an easier time treading water. Also, 70% body fat is really, really high.

comment 8 hours continous sleep but thirsty, or good hydration but sleep interrupted?
Some of those should be closed. Some were asked before the policy against general-health questions was made. The rest are related to a specific workout issue. If you have a problem with this single close vote, go to meta.fitness.stackexchange.com.

Questions about general health and nutrition are explicitly off-topic.

This is off-topic...but try eating more salt.

comment Are there papers about Starting Strength or Strong lifts?
I honestly don't know what a scientific study could even start to say definitively

comment How do gymnasts and dancers remain so slim, yet so agile and strong?
A clean and jerk is not a gymnastic move. It's an Olympic weightlifting move.
