    Hi Joe,

    I’ve spent the past 8 weeks out of the gym with a shoulder injury and with a lot of rehab I am now progressing into gym-based strengthening and looking to start training to build muscle again. Prior to the injury I was doing the Push, Pull, Lower 2x per week (6 sessions, 1 rest day). As it has been some time since I have been in the gym, would you suggest reducing the volume initially and gradually increase over the coming weeks?

    Also, in regards to building muscle after time off, I have heard a lot about ‘muscle memory’ and that you are able to gain back what you have lost at a faster rate than building ‘new’ muscle. What are your thoughts on this? Just curious

    Thanks!
