It’s been a while since I posted here. Life hit, and I went on a crazy adventure that involved lots of body-weight exercise and running, but not a lot of recovery and no weight lifting. So I need some help with programming to get back into the weight room. Also, I think my programming was all dicked up to begin with, so I need a fresh start anyway.
Specific Question: what is a good program for a returning novice (not-quite-intermediate) lifter after 2-3 months not barbell training?
My last 1RMs were something like this, at about 155lbs bodyweight:
- add size (10-20lbs)
- look more good naked
- earn some actual numbers in the main lifts.
Considering that my previous totals weren’t that hot to begin with, I was thinking of just doing Starting Strength, with a starting weight of 70% of my previous 1RMs, and working up until I can get back to 5/3/1-style programming.
Any and all advice appreciated!
