Just wondering what kind of routine some of y'all would suggest, Im thinking a westside type setup or an Upper/lower split.

Stats:
Age:19
Weight:168lbs right now, will be around 190 once everything is back to normal
& all my lifts are garbage right now and I dont know my maxs.


Thanks
I wouldn't go by any form of periodization at the moment. I would deload down to a really low weight, focus on form and use a progressive resistance training approach adding 5-10lbs per session like a novice would train.

With this in mind, I'd go to Mark Rippetoe's starting strength routine. Keep linear progression going until you get your lifts back up, then do 5/3/1, westside, texas method, etc. but for right now you can reactivate all the disabled motor units by progressive resistance and deloading.
