hello there, i’m new to T-Nation forums. nice to meet you all.
a little about myself:
30/ male/ brooklyn. 5’8", 172lbs. been lifting regularly between 2004 - 2008, took a break between 2008 and 2010, and then got back into in 2010. between powerlifting since 2010 (not competing), and recently switched traditional bodybuilding after an AC joint injury. haven’t been heavy benching since february of this year due to AC joint sprain and mild osteoarthritis. in fact, I probably shoulder have taken a couple months off but started working my back before the joint was fully healed (while avoiding painful motions) and it may have not healed correctly.
with that said, I’d like to know if anyone has tried taking a break from split-training and gone back to newbie-style full-body training done 3 or 4 times a week. I’m not trying to cut or anything, but I’m just wondering if going full-body training (volume on one day, max weight on another) for a month or two would be beneficial at all for me, especially to work around my messed up left shoulder.
any input is appreciated.
