Any weightlifters/bodybuilders on the forum?

I'm just getting back into it after a two month break due to a severed tendon in my right hand.

I consider myself a novice. After two years of dabbling at the gym, I spent three months on Rippetoe's starting strength program and learned how to eat a disgusting amount of food. Within three months I made these gains:

All weights are three sets of five reps:

Squat: 180 -----> 295
Bench: 100 -----> 170
Press: 80 -------> 130
Pullups: <1 -----> 8

Also 1x5 Dead: 180 ------> 325

Not breaking any records with these numbers by any means, but I was pretty pleased with my progress. I'm 36 and this was my first time seriously devoting effort weight training. People definitely started noticing.

I lost about 20% off all my numbers after two months out, but I'm convinced I can get back up to where I left off within a month.

I'd like to hear from other members about their gains, the programs they use, and what's worked for them/hasn't worked for them.
