Yeesh. I just finished Week 1 of my gym adventures.
I haven't been to the gym consistently in a long time, and naturally, all the gains I made from then have mostly dissipated. Not really a big deal; I understand that, especially early on, the weight I'm lifting is going to be much, much less.
But damn, son; when I stopped going, I could dumbbell bench press 70 lbs per hand. I could regular bench 235. And now?
I struggled to get 200 lbs on my one rep match. I couldn't do more than 40 lbs per hand when I tested that. My legs are struggling with 185 lb squats!
I know within a few weeks my muscles'll have adjusted and I'll be seeing big gains. But it still sucks. It really sucks.
On a positive note: I got to eat breakfast this morning! Hooray for not being lazy! Hooray!
