    I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

    your post is very confusing

    it is very normal to be just as strong as your heavier self.
    bench: 240
    squat: 260
    deadlift: 300

    height:6'
    weight:183 (12%bf)

    i cant explain lol
    to cut a long story short i have got it back very quickly from losing all my gains which i am pretty hyped about. It had been 8-9 months so i thought i wouldnt get any of it back.
    you guys are pretty patient because my posts have been stupid.

    yeah bro its totally normal. I took off 2 months from lifting and came back and set a few PR's within 3 weeks, at a lighter body weight.

    My workout bench weight is up 15lbs compared to before.

    BTW your looking pretty ****ing good for you age and weight. impressive.
