    if you lose a few lbs... even if its just likely water weight?

    I highly doubt it...I always always fluctuate in weight when I go to the gym. I'm typically around 168-169 (5'10") and I've gone in to the gym at 165 and then 170 the next day or two. That weight can vary a lot based on if I just ate, the last time I had to take a shat, etc.

    Oh duh, the question...

    Although I have fluctuated in weight my lifts and strength tend to be no different than any other day.

    I'm pretty consistent in the sense I measure my weight same time (early morning) , pretty much same conditions. While my weight does fluctuate 1-2 lbs... it usually takes me 3-4 days to regain my weight from the weekend.

    for me max lifts depend on my lifestyle the past couple of days, as well as the state of mind i am in at the time. mostly i mean if i am in a caloric surplus and have been doing gpp regularly but have not stressed my cns in like 2-3 days and feel fine at the gym then my attempt will go well.
