I've worked out for few years before I stopped for a while 7 months ago due to some personal problems (I was very weak mentally so I couldn't recover and get my ass back to where it belonged). Now that I feel like sorting out my life back one of the main things that I want to do is to gain back my strength and lose these flabs that I managed to collect.
Went to the gym today and after doing some warm ups, I started to load up the bar for deadlifts. I got too excited and just slapped on nearly as much weight as my working set last year. And as you can expect, I couldn't even budge the thing off the floor, but I didn't give up and tried again several times after that. Then I realised how dangerous this can be so I stopped and just did high reps with 135lb as I felt a bit clueless as what weight I should start and stop at.
Sorry for the long and redundant intro, so my question is approximately how long would it take for me to get back to using the weights that I used to use? Sometimes I can be too eager and might injure myself. I guess it's mostly a mentality problem as not being able to handle a weight that I used to use for my warmups kinda hurt me a bit (eventhough I know it shouldn't!). Thanks in advance.
