    major setback

    Okay, so I had a major set back. I had a herniated disk in my neck that was caused by absolutely nothing! Basically, for 6 weeks my neck was in pain, had intense headaches, and completely lost my appetite. When I would wake up in the mornings i would have ringing in my ears, and get really nauseous. Due to the pain I wasn't able to lift. And due to the complete loss of apetite I lost about 13 LBS of lean muscle. This seems like alot but, I do have a really fast metabolism. Before I lifted and had my diet in check I was about 142 LBS (disgusting, I know).

    I feel 100% better now, but I really need to get back on track with training and getting my diet in check again. I'm going to supplement with just the basics; same as before. 6g fishoil, B-Complex, Multi-V, and of course enough protein.

    Does anyone have any tips or suggestions as to how to get where I was as fast as possible? Maybe a particular routine, WBB1?

    Hey getb1g,

    Do you have to take into account your herniated disk in your neck? I don't want to suggest something that may cause you to injure yourself.

    Any of the WBB Routines would be great, or alternatively if you made progress on a previous routine, why not do that again?

    I would just get back into things slowly and focus on the code stuff - squats, deadlifts, chins, dips, rowing etc. You could even just pick three exercises and train 3 times a week - 9 exercises in total and just focus on getting some strength on the big core exercises for the first 8 weeks and then start looking at something different?
