I started 531 a few months but then got really sick so I had to take two months off from the gym. I squatted yesterday using a TM that is 25lbs less than my previous cycle 1 TM and I ended up failing the second last set on the 531 sets.
I basically lost about 60+lbs on my max and would have to lower my TM by about 60lbs. That means it would take around 9 cycles (6 months)just to regain my strength and that sounds too long to me. Would it be better to just use a weekly progression routine or even starting strength to quickly regain my strength with muscle memory and then try 531 again? Thanks.
