Guys, can you please post your current training experience and stats WITH your workload? I need extra details.[/quote]
I am a former “advanced” level lifter who basically hasn’t done serious shit for a long time, at least not continuously. I have had several “comes backs,” then work takes over for months at a time and kills all the progress back I had been making to advanced level again.
So right now I am doing a beginner’s routine for a couple months (with some alterations) to get as much of my strength levels back as I can (and some of my lost body weight), and when that no longer works, onto an intermediate level program for as long as it takes after that to get back to advanced.
My present stats are 5’7" 160 lbs., down from 182 at my peak. I lift heavy 3x per week and do GTG/GPP work for 2 sets of 5 with 70% of my previous day’s work sets 3 times per week.
I worked out “heavy” today (a relative term) with 3 set of 5 with 225 ATG squats (which means tomorrow I do 2x5 at 157.5).
