Second day back and all is good. Much more sore than I was expecting from yesterday, though, and strength was down a small percentage. Just being back in the gym is a very good feeling, however. I also decided to change the order of my split around. Same muscle groups trained together, but changing the sequence up a little bit. Today would've been legs, but that didn't make sense to me for now...

Summary: Less overall volume than usual, but based on today's soreness I think that's a good thing. This week will be a break-in week since it was a full two weeks of being away from the gym. As mentioned above, I changed the sequence of training days around a bit. The previous bodypart split was based on taking Thursdays off and training legs only once a week on Wednesday. Now that I'm training with the same 3-day split but over 5 days instead of 4, it's inevitable that two upper body days get trained back-to-back, but I'd rather arms not be fatigued on Chest/Back day, hence the swap. Tomorrow will be legs.
