    Should I be following a beginner or intermediate program based on my physique?

    I've got a year of lifting under my belt but this year I barely lifted. Dunno if I still look like a beginner or if I should look into intermediate style training?

    I don't think it matters that much, but I'd base your decision less on your physique and more on whether you think you can progress under a beginner program. Where you are now on your lifts prob is more relevant for that.

    Physique has nothing to do with it. Are you still able to linearly progress? Pick the program that allows you the most appropriate progression, even considering enjoyment if that’s a factor that permits consistency. Whether that’s a beginner, intermediate or advanced program is up to you. Just be realistic with your goals.

    I started lifting again 3 wks ago so my lifts are ass, I'm using 12kg dbs for bench and shoulder press and my deadlift is 50kg, can't do one pull up with bodyweight so I'm using machine assisted pullups, my bb row is 25kg

    Reason I'm asking based on my physique is because I dunno if ive still got a lot of noob gains left to gain

    Just keep lifting on a good program and you'll find out soon enough. Beginner, intermediate, advanced are based on rate of progression more than physique. You'll progress quickly since you just started back lifting, then muscle memory will stop and you'll make new gains at whatever rate fits your level.

    You’ve most likely reset your volume tolerance due to the time off. If you have no preference, I would recommend a beginner routine as they are generally lower in volume. Progressing with as little volume as you need is more conducive to sustained growth.

    I think right now you'd get the best results with a proper novice program, then switch to an intermediate program when you can't progress consistently anymore (weights not physique). But up to you.

    Definitely a beginner program you should be able to progress linearly still.
