I have some questions about coming back after a long (2.5 Month) break. How much strength is normal to lose in that time frame? and how quick can I expect to get it back. I tried to take 10% off my training max, but could barely get the prescribed reps (actually couldn't on the squat). Should I try to grind through this cycle and hope it all comes back to me, or deload even more?
