A shoulder injury, threads like this one
and common sense I guess, made me decide to do Starting Strength. (Initially I will only be squatting and deadlifting due to my injury, but will add presses as soon as possible.)
Iíve read the books and know the basics but could still use some guidance on where to start, weight-wise. Last time I squatted I did 15*125 kg (≈ 275 lbs) and deadlifted 12*152,5 kg (≈335 lbs) (Iíve been doing 5/3/1). Iím in no hurry, I donít want to stall anytime soon, and thinking of starting with 110-120 kg in the squat and 140-150 kg in the deadlift. Would that be too much?
Two other questions as well:
- Will it be harder for me to recover Ė and should I maybe decrease the volume Ė since Iím older, 35, than the average SS:er ?
- How should I ease into the press again when my shoulder has healed (compared to 5/3/1 there is an added day of pressing)?
