that's not soley because of the epigenetic muscle memory:

1. you also already have the basics of lifting technique down - it takes some time to learn to squat properly.

2. you are comfortable with going to the gym and getting into the lifts straight away instead of spending the first few months on the treadmill.

3. you're probably knowledgeable about programs and the need for progression.

this is all in addition to the epigenetic muscle memory.

These are valid points. I should also say that I rarely go to the gym anymore, as I far prefer swimming and running at the moment. I don't even have a current gym membership (first time in over ten years!).

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
