I am 41years old and have been away from barbell and dumbbell lifting for the past 6months. I am going to start up Wendler's 531 program next week and I had a question concerning the break-in period. I was thinking of taking a month to slowly allow my body to readjust to the weights before going fully into the program. Is taking a month too long?
During my time away I worked with kettlebells and bodyweight exercises exclusively (dropped around 35lbs). Thank you for your assistance.
