Hi, I used to be really strong but I lost all my strength when I started training for MMA because my coach told me to stop doing weights for pure strength, strange I know. Well, I'm done with MMA and I'm back into weightlifting. The only thing is I really would like to stay in decent shape while doing SS and then when I switch back over to Bill Starr after my lifts progress.
Currently I'm doing a 2 miles jog on tues/thurs/sat and lifting mon/wed/fri. The jog is pretty easy to me and I don't feel it the next day or really much the same day. I'm just wondering, is this too much and will it destroy my gains? Thank you.
Also, I have one more question. I pulled my left pec twice so it's kind of sensitive so I'm wondering after looking at Bill Starr's 5x5 and seeing there is a load of chest work, will it be alright if I cut off dips or something like that? Or maybe should I do Bill Star's big 3 program instead?
Thank you guys for all your help.
