I tried to RX the workout but I couldn't get the last 37kg push jerks. Yeh i'm a little sad...

As I pondered over my obvious decrease in strength, my coach asked me if I had lost any weight. Over the last few weeks, yes, I have been losing weight. But I thought I was losing body fat? Was I instead losing muscle? It had never occured to me that my weight loss could be the cause of this terrible disaster.

HoweverI don't want to be so quick to jump to conclusions. I want to continue to drop my weight (where I actually want to drop my body fat). If my strength does keep declining, maybe I should start thinking of bulking, rather than cutting...

Ahhhhhh i'm frustrated and sad.
