Hurricane Harvey and a Few Minor Injuries For Two Weeks


For the last two weeks, a lot has been going on, I had a few setbacks including a few piched nerves and now Hurricane Harvey. These past two weeks, I’ve only benched once, squatted twice, and deadlifted once. The next programed workout calls for 90% of my max and I’m not too sure about it after lifting inconsistently. What should I do when I return to the gym? Deload/reload? Retest my maxes and start the program over? Or just immediately go to the 90% workout after two weeks of not lifting consistently? P.S. I’m a beginner/intermediate lifter (2ish years).


IMO…you go back and begin with the week that was scheduled 1 week prior to the last complete week of training and begin from there.


^^ what he said. Stay safe man, haven’t been able to make it anywhere including the the gym. Our house is fine, but we are completely blocked in by the water.


Thank you guys for the input! And stay safe during these hard times in Texas!
