Ok i picked up a strenth routine from fight fit magazine and gave it ago , only ever done wieghts for show before so this was new to me , real simple bread and butter stuff heavy wieghts low reps more sets stuff
The basics of dead lifts squats bench and id fiddle about with bi's n tri's never found time for shoulders with doing bjj twice a week also
I was very impressed with the results , im not a big guy 75kg but felt good strenth improvments
But wasnt long before i started getting plauged by back injuries , before long i couldnt even look at a squat or dead lift with out pulling something.
So went back to more body building wieghts for 2 or 3 weeks , then went on holiday and had about 2 weeks no training at all. Started again this week and ......wow its gone ? Every shread of strenth has just evaporated
So the question is , is strenth a relentless battle that soon as u stop training it it starts to fade or is there a secret to building it up slowly so it stays
