Program Question


#1

Good morning gents,

I am 28, 5’10, 190, prob around 20-25% BF. I need help finding the right routine to start back into working out. This isn’t a new years resolution idea, this is me being a lazy SOB for 6 months and not going to the gym.

I am very weak in the gym it would seem as my 3 rep maxes look like this:
Bench 155
Squat 185
Dead Lift 235
Press 110

My Issue is, I start back at the gym, I set up a west side template (thats what i learned on) and i beat the shit out of myself on the first work out and dont go back for weeks.

Would I be better off just building my strength back up using SS or the like? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes. It doesn’t necessarily have to be SS but be reasonable.

Yep, like the guys said, Starting Strength plus getting your nutrition is order is a solid place to start. I like this article for a basic step-by-step plan.
