Took 3 weeks off..did chest today
I did 245 6 times..then I dropped it on my chest My muscular endurance is horrible..I couldnt incline dumbell 70s haha. However..I didn't feel a thing in my chest (knock on wood Ive said that before..) Will my strength come back up to where it was, even though Im cutting and am in a caloric deficit?

sure it will!!! give it time work your way back up slow, i had a horible shoulder injury a few years back and i had to start back up just using a 135 for multiple sets instead of woking sets with 365, its a blow to your ego, but you will be back in about 2 months, just don't push it, try a little more every wk, stay away from heavy triples and singles. i know you like westside, this is the time to not do westside or at least your chesr. try some old fashioned percentages and periodization

Yea..I just did some bodybuilding stuff. I did all sets at 8 reps..until my crappy endurance from being off so long kicked in and I could barely get 225 twice..this was after the 245 6 times, I thought I could get it 8 or so like I did the first set, but nope only 2

no your just getting back into it, it takes time, be patient. i have squated 540 raw in a contest at 181 drug free, i took a few wks off do to personal problems, and when i got back to the gym 275 for 5's was rough! it took me time but i worked my way back up. "slow and steady wins the race" said the tortise to the hare.

Haha yup. Yesterday my second session back I got 295 3. It came back pretty quickly..hopefully I'll get a lil more back and get my 315 for reps back. I would be impressed since Ive dropped 33lbs

Sounds like you are back on the road to pushing the weights again..
I have the same problem even taking a week or two off squats itis like I am starting over.
Good job dude!!
