Historically after 3+ month lay off it usually takes me 3-4 weeks to get 90% of my strength back. That last 10% is a different story though.For you guys that took time off from the gym. How long did it take for your strength to return? This is my first week back and everything felt heavy.
Thanks for your response. I figured it would take some time to get all my strength backHistorically after 3+ month lay off it usually takes me 3-4 weeks to get 90% of my strength back. That last 10% is a different story though.
At around 90%, things slow down and I basically start progressing at the same rate I was progressing at before the pause in training.
Edit: Checked the actual numbers and it's more like 97% for me on bench press.
That what I love about lifting weights.For you guys that took time off from the gym. How long did it take for your strength to return? This is my first week back and everything felt heavy.
im still sort of relearning conventional since thats what i was doing when i herniated my disk. havent done more than 225 conventional since then. that was 3 years ago. but sumo i still go for broke.One thing I love about pulling sumo now is how it doesn’t tax your body as much compared to conventional.
pulling conventional would drain my soul and I would take 5+ minutes to rest for the next set.
I want a dl bar just to mix it up, a Chan bar would be nice too, probably my favorite all around bar.Never particularly got too big into Sumo. Sumo explosion seemed to come out of no where with Candito.
besides the usual Olympic bar, y’all using or incorporating any other speciality bars (duffalo, Swiss, etc)?
