as life moves on and more and more responsibilities arrive, the starting over has become more and more frequent for me. Mind you that I have never seen an article on it, but it only makes sense to me that there is a limit to how much remodeling can happen from session to session. With it commonly accepted that the only necessity to create a remodeling is that you do something that is more than the body is used to, it seems to make sense with the life/workout balance that you break into it easy so that a)you don't have DOMS so bad it limits what is most important in your life, work to provide for your kids and the ability to do other responsibilities
b) there is no linear relationship to infinity that applies to workout intensity and volume and the amount of improvement you are going to make, aka bang for your training buck. Start slow, recover and rebuild a foundation and eclipse your previous best with sensible, progressive effort.
