    I got back in the gym today, and I felt like a total chump. My previous best on the bench press, just as an example, was 185x10 (in the middle of 4-5 sets). Today, I did 175x6, and a bit later my arms and chest got all jelly on me. :hs:

    How long should I expect to be weaker than 1 month ago?

    Chill. Its your first day back. Bump it in a week if you aren't at 90%+ back.

    Quitting is for losers, and I'm not one, and you aren't either. I'm trying to broly up for the beginning of August when I'm going to San Diego.
