I’m currently doing a 5x5 program to get back in the game- I stopped lifting consistently for maybe a month or two; I went maybe once or twice a week. I just moved into college and was getting assimilated and putting other things before lifting. So, I just started my 8 week program last week, and this week, after my monday workout, my chest was incredibly sore. I’m getting enough protein and carbs and covering all my bases nutrition wise, so that wasnt it. But after my third set, my chest really started to ache. I stopped, deciding it was better to wait and not overdo my CNS or strain my chest. I finished the day with Deads and Hammer Curls.
So, my question is: Should I have pushed myself, or should I have done what I did? I know that only I know my limits (I don’t got no limits mofucka) but what is your opinion?
