Only go for 30-45min sessions 3 times a week and try and ease yourself back into your own rhythm of training
2. Grab a friend
Having a friend train with you can give you that extra motivation and determination to push harder in the gym. You can challenge one another at different exercises which will benefit both of you in the long run. If your another thing like me you will be busting a gut to not lose at anything….competitive much? Lol
3. Join a class
Depending what your goal is this can be a good way to get your fitness back up. In a group environment, there is less pressure placed upon you and may enjoy it more being around people in a similar position to you.
4. Use body weight or resistance machines.
I would definitely advise to keep it simple as possible because you need to condition your body back into your usual training routine. You can’t go straight back into lifting the weights you were doing 6 weeks ago without prepping your muscles beforehand. Hit training or volume training would be your best bet for the first 4 weeks then gradually go back into the free weights.
5. Set some short/long term goals
If you set yourself some realistic goals to achieve this will give you an incentive to go back into the gym. I would say if it is weight loss aim up to 1 pound a week. If it is more for toning take full body pictures as scales will not determine your efforts, the mirror never lies.
