So, about 4 months ago, I took an unexpected trip down some stairs and fucked my knee up a little. Prior to that, I had been doing 5/3/1 for a few cycles. Between unable to do any lower body work at first, and being in a stressful semester, I just didn’t train. Finally started back at the gym today to test a few one-rep maxes.
I actually felt really great, and while I lost some strength, I wasn’t as weak as I had expected myself to be. I had originally planned to do a couple months of Starting Strength and treat myself as a beginner because of the layoff (and I was no hulk or anything before) so I’m considering jumping right back into 5/3/1. What do you think?
Also, I remember seeing on here that some people were doing their benching assistance work on their overhead pressing days and vice versa to try to make up for lack of benching. Has anybody found if it made a difference or not? Anyone with any experience with that?
