    Ok, my first official post on F&N.

    About a year back I decided to get back into the gym. Wanting to show off and seeing what I could handle I bench pressed 200lbs about 3 times after a short warm up(something I was never able to achieve years previous).

    Next week I was sore as hell. I had trouble reaching the seat belt in my car, trouble putting the phone to my ear, etc.

    After the initial week of pain, I tried to bench again and could barely muster to put up 80lbs.

    Does anyone know what happened to me?

    What routines would anyone recommend so that I do not have that happen in future?

    Thanks before hand.

    You could try not starting off so heavy and letting your muscles get used to lifting heavy weights again.
