Unfortunately, with me getting hit with sickness a few days ago as well as getting hit with a truckload of schoolwork, I’ve taken a forced 10 day hiatus from lifting weights. I’ve gotten two workouts in since then, and feel great. Just getting back into the motions of the gym, and I feel like I’ve still got most of my strength intact.
My last two recovery workouts have consisted of doing squats, bench, and deadlift at about 80% and 85% of what I have been doing for repetitions before. At this rate, I’ll be back to where I used to be soon.
Really, there are few things in life as satisfying as finishing a challenging workout. I’ve missed the feeling immensely. It’s time to get back in the gym and crush my goals.
