A year ago I was on here every day, reading and studying. I was training t-man style, all the Waterbury methods in particular but also just about every other program that’s come up on here over the years, with incredible results.
I was eating like Berardi would, basically doing everything 90% perfect for several years in a row up until a year ago when I had to completely stop everything.
It’s something that I’ve been upset about every day for the last year – due to extenuating circumstances I haven’t been able to step into the gym even once. And my eating has had to be reduced severely.
Now when I look in the mirror I see someone with none of the gains I’d worked so hard for for years.
Now I’ve got a couple questions for people who have had to take time like this off before themselves:
(1) Give it to me straight – how long is it likely going to take to get back to where I was a year ago? A sense of this will be important in order to avoid the possibility of being discouraged about how long it’s taking while at same time having goal that I think attainable and motivating.
(2) Any advice on how to go about doing this as effectively as possible?
I’m back to scrawny as ever (6’0" 150lbs) and I hate it. Please help me get my 20lbs of muscle back as quickly as possible.
