    took 2 weeks off...trouble!?

    Work has been really ****ty, and I haven't been able to hit the gym. I've cut my calories, and done some workouts at home with my barbells...but not anything intensive. BUT I FEEL IT!! Anyway, I am back at the gym this week. Should I cut back my weights a little...or do you think I can go back to the weight I was at??

    You should just be able to jump right in where you left off. 2 weeks isnt that bad. Now if u slacked on ur eating and didnt eat for crap then you could prob go a little lighter. But everybody is different. And if u cant lift what u could lift last time, next time your in there you should. Take a month off, ull notice a diff

    Try it and find out. You should be warming up with lighter weights before your working sets anyway. If you're trying to db press 90 x 8, and you're finding the 70's heavy, you probably won't be able to do the 90's...it's not rocket science.

    You might even find that you can lift a little more because of the rest you have had. Try it and see.
