I’ve been lifting for a year right now, going from 125 lbs to 155 lbs (I’m 5’6). My bench has gone up from 95x1 to 195x1, and my best DL is 245x3. I don’t squat because my college gym doesn’t have a power rack, only a smith machine and it sucks for squats.
I need some advice because today I had a Lasik surgery to correct my vision, and the doc told me that I can’t lift heavy stuff for 3 weeks. I know that isn’t a very long time, but I hope that you guys give me some tips to avoid muscle loss during this period.
I was thinking in keep my protein high, but is this enough ? Maybe raise my protein intake a little ? Right now I Consume around 200 grs of protein per day, most of it come from whole eggs and chicken, plus 2 protein shakes around workout.
I hope that you guys could help me. Thanks In advance!
