I was ill, a flu, or other infection. I know that I had to suspend training sessions. This time it was 2 weeks, so nothing really special. It happens to me from time to time, and usually 2-3 weeks are lost. Then it takes another 2-4 weeks to get back to the weights I had before suspension.
My plan on getting back is - as follows:
First training. I'm doing half of weights - just to find out if everything is OK. I learned it can happen that I feel well, but my body is still ill. So I start with something small, and then get with higher. At each training, somewhere in the middle I test if a higher weight is not a problem - in the beginning higher means +20%. If that works then, next training means +10%. Usually that is too much. Also usually, a single set is not a problem, but whole training is different story.
My question is quite simple. Can I do it better? Can I recover faster? Maybe it is better to go with "normal" weight, and do less is better then slowly going up? Please share your ideas, tips, experience. Every answer is welcome!
