I had Covid in December, was down for about 4 weeks and have been Covid-free (negative tests) for 3 months but my strength seems to not be coming back at all. Prior to getting sick my maxes were (roughly) Sq: 445, B: 290 (poverty bench), DL: 535. I’ve been back to training a full 3 months and right now I’m at (roughly) Sq: 405, B: 260, DL: 455. It’s getting insanely frustrating at this point. Before getting sick I was doing 455 for DL sets of 5-7 and yesterday I pulled an extremely grinding single with that weight.
For reference, a couple years ago I had mononucleosis that knocked me for about the same amount of time as Covid and within 3 months I got all my strength back (even though I was still 10-15 lbs. lighter - I had lost 40lbs overall).
Has anyone else that has had Covid experienced the same thing? Anything I can do to overcome this?
