So I have been an avid lifter since I was 16, now 24 but around a year and a half ago I fell really ill from an undiagnosed case of lyme disease. I ended up losing all of my work in the gym and dropped weight very quickly, anyways now I have been treating it for around seven months with a Lyme disease specialist doctor and have bounced about 65% back to my normal health as of now.
I am feeling pretty good enough to get in the gym and do some light lifting to help strengthen my body again and hopefully further facilitate my recovery from the infection. I am not going to go crazy and try to lift like I was training to be a physique athlete, however I don't have much experience with rehabilitation type training and trying to start from such a low thresh hold with much less exercise tolerance.
I can bounce back once my health comes back more and get back the strength and athleticism I lost through muscle memory at least. I am just not sure what program or style of training to do right now until being more "normal" again. Just seeking some tips on things I can try now in the meantime, So far I thought of doing the 5/3/1 program from Jim Wendler and accessory work based on things I need. Just need to get my system moving and muscles really engaged again so I don't atrophy anymore.
