If you are lifting more than 10% less (e.g. were bi curling 10, but can only do 7 at present) now than you were in the first half of Push, starting over, or at least re-doing just Push is probably a good idea. Whereas the compound exercises in Burn were pretty straightforward, the ones in Lean are a little more complicated and require more coordination and core strength. I wouldn't want to tackle that after a decline.
Of course, whether you do CLX again at all is totally up to you, but I think it's excellent and completely worthwhile, and I've never gotten results like that on my own or with any other program.

I did an awesome job during the summer when I started CLX. I finished the Burn Circuit and started the Push Circuit. Then school started. I'm a teacher and we are piloting several new programs. Time is tight and I've just now finished the Push Circuit with several weeks between the last 2 sessions. I want and need to resume strength training. Should I start over with CLX, go on to the Lean Circuit (I've lost a LOT of strength but still feel awesome muscles in my arms!), or create a strength training here on SP so I'm not bound by DVDs and can do the exercises anytime?
