I’ve just added some decent weight equipment to my home gym because I want to add strength training.
I’ve been adding heavy squats, deadlift, benchpress, vertical shoulder press, barbell rows, barbell hip thrusts, pull ups, carries, face pulls, etc.
Is there anything I should expect when adding these heavy lifts to my routine? Someone made the comment to me that you should expect to get slower before you get faster. Any truth to that? My plan is to alternate an A & B full body workout for a total of 3 weight training days per week.
I think I’m “fortunate” to be implementing this while I’m technically “off the bike” due to my doctor’s instructions. I am continuing to do some standing bike work as well as have a noseless bike that I can do some medium duty indoor bike work on. I’m thinking I can get through the phase where I have the worst DOMs. Any recommendations on how I should continue this once my hardcore training starts back up in a month or so?
