4 years ago I was able to Bench 180 lb, Squat 220 lb and Deadlift 330 lb. Beginner numbers. Today, my strength is down to about 60% of I was then. LBM is down 10-15 lbs as well.
I'm at a deficit now and strength is going up consistently. So unless I got my macros all wrong, I was assuming it was due to the fact that I once upon a time was stronger that I am today. And if so, is it also possible to recover any of that lost muscle during a deficit? You know, because muscle memory and all that.
