I have been hot and cold with my lifting, but I'm currently working abroad (China) and have an enormous amount of time on my hands and I want to really get well established in lifting again by the time I return to the States.
However, I am no newbie to lifting--I have been doing it for about the last 6 years off and on. Right now I'm coming of a major back injury (herniated disc) and looking to ease into things--mainly with exercises that do not stress or load the spine.
Most of the articles I've read seem to be aimed at either a newbie or a person who has been lifting consistently for at least a year. I find myself in a weird in-between place. I am very familiar with technique and methods (I passed the CSCS exam) and I have been lifting for quite awhile. However, I am probably 6 mouths out of a consistent workout regimin, since then I've been exercising sporadically.
For those experienced--mind giving me a hand? Where should are start? Should I begin with a full-body routine like a complete noob, or should I do split body? What system should I participate in?
Very much appreciated.
