returning from long breaks

I am in a situation where I took a much needed break from body building. I am 21 lift about 5 times a week with the emphasis on growing. I took a 3 month lay off, where I did not even touch a weight. In that time I lost about 25% of what took me over two years to put on. Now that I am getting back into my routine, I would like to know what is the best way to get back to my previous size. I have found that most of my strenght is there, but the size is all gone. What is the best way to get back into form, since my strength is still there?

Just get back into the gym on a consistent basis again and your size’ll come back. No problems, no special program needed.

second go around will be easier. You may be a perfect candidate for either EDT training or HST or cycling both.
