    Starting over again- ideas






    So I'm starting at the gym again after almost two years of inconsistent lifting. I'm not sure how to start lol. Do I need to ease in or jump in? Any advice on starting back would be very much welcomed!
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    Hey Pat, good to hear from ya! Any suggestions for easing in- you know that's never been my strong point lol, I always want to jump in and do everything right away.

    Definately! I find the 1st WO after a prolonged absense is always the most difficult. Go easy and refamiliarize yourself with the weights.

    1) get a good warm up - some basic movement stuff, get the blood flowing
    2) some basic core work to start out - planks, bird dogs, blah blah
    3) soem body weight or light weight circuits - push ups, pull ups, split squats, body weight squats or med ball squats or light loaded squats, light RDLs etc.

    Just get moving and get the blood flowing. finish with some easy cardio and stretching.

    Thats what I do. I do about one set up every exercise I used to do with very light weight. Jumping jacks, pushups, pikes. Ballistic stuff also.
