Your today's article is on point for me since I am kind of okay with my physique (still not heavy enough tho) but quite disappointed with my lack of progress with the iron. When I read other's people (with similar experience) numbers on these forums, I believe that I started pretty good from nothing for the first year, but now everything has been so slow for the last 2 years, it's ridiculous. And my joints certainly hate me for being stubborn with heavy pressing and few pulling exercises.
Goals are gaining mass and strength, along with caring about my joints.
Nutrition is the best I've been having, and I sleep 8-9h/night
So as I'm moving from France to the US for at least 6 months-probably 2 years for a whole new job, I've sold all my weights 3 weeks ago and only kept playing football and did bodyweight training with rings. Lots of bw pulling... Unsurprisingly my body responded well to long sets, pulling much more and high frequency, which relates to "training the opposite way".
Since I'm moving very soon and will join a gym in July, that would be another 3-4 weeks with zero training this time...
Is a full rest the best option here with all the stress moving out? Only finding chinups spots maybe? What is the best Come-back strategy after a 6-8 weeks long break?
