Default Had to travel, got flabby and out of shape

Only got to workout 2x a week, half-assed and didn't track calories. I look pretty bad compared to my former peak.

Would it be stupid to jump into PSMF? Or should I eat at maintenance and build some fitness back up first? I have a lot of bromo from last year. Bad idea to start using it immediately?

My strength and work capacity is shot. I went from having no hunger and being fine only eating a low calorie meal at dinner while being sub 10% to being hungry and needing to eat every 3 hours while at 17% or so.
Half-way measures don't get very far. You can only do one thing well at a time. Trying to gain muscle while losing fat will result in failure.

Get to 10% bodyfat first while lifting weights heavy 3x a week with reduced volume. Two weeks maintenance. Bulk up slowly (1 lb weight gain per week max), focus on getting stronger, measure body composition changes often.
