Hey there. I didn’t lift for 6-8 months on account of an injury I had. The rehab from the injury took a lot out of me, CNS-wise, and I had to spend a lot of time in bed. After swimming for a month or two, I started hitting the weight room again.
Since I gained a bunch of weight, the program I picked to start with is German Body Comp.
Unfortunately, although I did lose 15 lbs pretty quickly, I’m feeling very burned out. Front squats, deadlifts and/or romanian deadlifts 3 times a week, plus those supersets are making me tired as hell. I have a workout tomorrow, and the thought of it makes me want to cry/curl up in a fetal position.
I’m thinking of doing “starting strength” with some minor accessory work for 3-4 weeks to get my base of strength and fitness back.
However, maybe you guys can recommend a program I can use to keep strength and muscle while cutting a bit, and that’s not as hard on the CNS? I want to work my muscles without stressing the entire body quite as much. I’m thinking “starting strength” plus minor accessory work to get my base of strength and fitness back.
Let me know what you think!
