    Wow im sore! Time off = soreness

    So i took a month off from lifting because i had to get a hernia surgery. And when i say a month off i mean i didnt lift a thing. I didnt even carry my laundry in fear of damaging the repair.

    I finally got back to the gym and went very light. Just some feather light preacher curls and tricep pull downs. Im about 6 weeks out from surgery at this point and starting to increase the weight and do more of my favorite workouts.

    Holy crap im sore! My forearms and shoulders feel like they are gonna peel off my body. I havent got sore like this in a long time. To be honest a month off may have done me some good. I feel pretty awesome since ive been back. Already getting great pumps and i leaned out quite a bit, probably due to a low dose of gh for the last 2 months or so.

    Sorry it had to be due to surgery though.

    I can typically change my routine, or take long breaks between sets (3-4 mins), and get sore, but I usually dont get that first time soreness unless I skip a week or so

    Glad your back training and don't rush things. Let your body break in and also use this as a chance to pay attention to over training. Now if you pay careful attention you can really dial in your workout and get things straight. I always noticed after time off that less is more. Goodluck, I'm about 4-5 weeks no training........I'm a little scared to go back in

    No that Phil Heath, I’m tiny compared to him. My body doesn’t want it anymore, I’m always getting injured and it’s no fun anymore. I’m starting a new life, blessed with a second chance and bodybuilding isn’t going to be part of it, it consumed my first life and nothing good came from it. 10th street is ok and Calverton sucks. Look up a few videos on Florida tracks and trails. It’s an hour and twenty minutes from my house

    Take it slow, in this time off do some research on how to rehab train and start with that.......it will pay off in the end. But get your diet straight ASAP.......no excuse for that, just laziness and not caring.

    It really requires a lot of effort, physical and mental, to get back on to training.

    Kudos to all you guys back in the grinding!

    Diet is my biggest struggle, like most people I'm sure. I love to train, only time it's a struggle is when life or injuries gets in the way.

    Everybody want solutions in the form of a pill, but when you talk to them about diet changes... pfff, impossible.

    Its magic liquid, in a bottle with a eyedropper...lol
    I've come a long way with diet in the year and half, dropped 76 lbs and did pretty much no cardio. Ive hit the brick wall for losing fat, so time to tighten up diet and add cardio.

    And it is possible to only take pills to lose weight, but its terrible on your body. Look at a meth head for example!
