Advice: Returning After a Month Off
February was a difficult month for me as I dealt with illness and injury. Fortunately, I am now at 100% and ready to hit the gym this week. I'm almost sure that I lost strength, and I would like to know where to begin so I can progress to where I left off a month ago.
Just for an example, last month, I was pushing 100 lb dumbbells for incline, decline, flat bench press. If I were to attempt these same exercises this week, I am curious as to what weight to begin with and how much weight to add each week?
Any recommendations anyone has for me? Or should I just go in there with extreme intensity?
Thanks in advance.
