Strength Loss Over Time
I've been training for a year now, about 4 times a week. My regimen includes squatting, bench pressing, overhead lifts, barbell rows, dips, and deadlifts.
I've had really good progression, I weigh 145 pounds and I deadlift and squat 225, bench 175, overhead lift 125. My question is I stopped lifting for about 3 months over the summer because I didn't have time, and now I'm looking back to lift.
What is your advice on rebuilding muscle strength after taking a break? I've been told that muscle memory will help me get back to where I was, but I don't know how long that will take.
My other question regarded taking protein. Which protein do you think is best for weight gain and why? And do you suggest supplements?
