Would like some opinions on how to proceed from here.

Soon as I can, i'm getting back into lifting and dieting. Last time I was consistently in the gym was May, and I was cutting at that point.

I've been eating like shit, drinking more than I should. Basically I am not in a good way.

Should I pick up my diet and training right where I left off? Kind of feel lost.

 

The body's ability to recover itself from damage and injuries (and training) is much worse and slower in a calorie deficit. The immune system is worse as well.

I'd say stay on a small surplus or maintenance until you are fully recovered, then go back to training with a slow start. Less volume and much lighter weights for sure.

 

Hate to say this, but your arm strength (was it the arm?) will most likely be pretty bad when you take off the sling, depending on where you broke it. I only had my arm in a sling for 3 weeks when I broke it at the shoulder joint, but I couldn't even raise the arm parallel to the floor by itself afterwards. Suffered worse mobility as well and had to spend about a year of rehabbing it.

 

Really hope your recovery will be better.

It's my collarbone, not arm, and yes I am sincerely hoping for the best.
post #47193 of 57263

Alright, for some reason I assumed the arm was involved when you said you wore a sling. I remember that the collarbone was injured.

 

If no limbs or big joints that are heavily used in lifting, like the shoulder or hip, were damaged badly, I think you will be able to make good recovery. From what I've heard and read from other lifters getting off for a while, muscle mass will comeback faster than strength. So that's good news if your main goal is to get swole and aesthetic.

Go see a PT if you haven't already. Find the weaknesses/imbalances that have arisen and work to fix those. Start from scratch and move up as you feel comfortable.

These are my recommendations. It's easier to dial it up than it is to dial it down once you hurt yourself from doing too much too soon.

It's actually a huge part of the business if the company is providing any sort of health insurance for the employees.

I don't think you can force anyone to work out or require it as part of their contract (or shame them into it), but you can certainly give incentives for them to work out and stay healthy.

^this

 

From what I gathered from OP, it looks like company is looking to enforce some sort of policy, which is incorrect.

 

The company and provide the best benefit package with all the amenities, doesn't mean the employee has to use or partake. Employee can actually decline coverage etc.

No one is enforcing any kind of fitness policy; I'm trying to think of an incentive to get staff to take advantage of paid workout time.

There is a colossal difference between leading a horse to water and finding a way to get them to drink versus dunking their heads underwater.

My old job wouldn't even pony up for discounted gym memberships. Anything to motivate or support people who work office jobs to get up and be active is Afuckin+
post #47200 of 57263
Same. 10,000 employee company. No discounted anything. Money spent covering employees increases every year. Coverage decreases. Employee premium contribution increases. Why even bother trying to take care of myself? No one else is.
post #47201 of 57263

Those are pretty silly reasons not to work out.

post #47202 of 57263
Exactly.

well, currently at 228. chest broke 50", (50.75")
arms cold at 20.85", figure I will get to 21" by mid september, true waist at around 35".

been doing 500 reps per body part, all reps at around 40-50% of 1rep max after a month of heavy training and basically somewhere between 3500-4250 kcal per day.

what kind of company do you work for?

My own wink.gif

I haven't got any employees so its not something I have to deal with.

I know multiple companies that send their employees to rehab (drugs and alcohol), as way to help them and if they don't clean up, it's bye bye.
