    Starting over

    Soo about 2 years ago I injured a nerve in my left arm which caused me to lose control of my wrist. Since then I have not been able to hold the same weight as my left arm. Fast forward to Covid and I haven't lifted since March.

    Just started again 2weeks ago, but was w ok wondering which plan to go with. I started with 5x5 years ago and then went with a split routine prior to wrist injury. Was wondering if I should just go back to 5x5 or something different, any suggestions are appreciated.

    I'd just customize your own routine (whether bro split if that's your preference, UL, PPL, FB, etc.) where you pick exercises (bb, db, machine, cable) that allow you to get around whatever limitations you have because of your wrist issue.

    If it doesn't bother your wrist, I suggest using straps/hooks for your pulling exercises so you can carry more weight in your left hand.

    Thanks for the input. I'm currently in a calorie deficit (aiming for 10%bf), so while I want my lifts to go up, it will be hard to have both. Just sucks seeing how much my lifts have gone down since my wrist incident.

    For an experienced lifter, I would go on a novice routine with an accelerated progression. It would be the fastest way to assess your current strength levels. Also, muscle memory is a thing.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.
