For a while there, you were keeping up a pretty impressive fitness routine. You were at the gym a few times a week, and you felt stronger and healthier than you had in years. But then life happens. Or maybe you got injured or sick. Whatever the story, your routine screeched to a halt, and working your way back up seems just about impossible. But there’s no reason to let getting back in shape intimidate you. Keep the following tips in mind, and you’ll be back on track before you know it. But remember you will be sore the first few weeks, that sucks but hey.. “no pain” “no gain”
Be choosy about what moves you do.
Just like you did when you first got in shape, you have to build your base. Avoid workout routines that have a lot of jumping, plyometrics, twisting, and fast movements until you’re up to speed with your strength and cardio, High-speed intervals may also prove too intense at first, unless you allow yourself adequate rest between them.
If the time off was related to an injury, you should take more care. “For a returning runner, it might be smart to start by doing non-weight-bearing exercise like indoor cycling. For a weight lifter, it might be smart to return via machines—which provide stability—before free-weight training.
Another issue that may have cropped up in your time off is weight gain. “Carrying extra body weight causes wear and tear on your joints during high-impact activities like running and jumping, swimming is recommended,cycling, weight lifting, hot yoga, and low-impact aerobics if you’re heavier than your ideal weight, and really focusing on your nutrition until you’re at a more joint-friendly weight.
Keep your workouts short
When you are not feeling like doing a long hard workout, 15 to 20 minutes is better than nothing—bear in mind that you can still get an intense workout in a shorter time frame. So whenever you feel less motivated, stick to a solid workout.
Keep your most embarrassing photos
Everyone has those photos they wish never existed, but sometimes they can serve as a good reminder of how far you’ve come and what you’ve accomplished. Whenever you feel like skipping a workout, looking at those photos will jog you down memory lane and motivate you to keep at it.
Make a killer workout playlist
Load your smartphone with your favorite up beat songs and turn them up when you’re feeling too tired to change into your workout clothes. More often than not, you’ll perk up and feel ready to work out. Remember that dancing till you break a sweat is also a perfect workout routine.
NOTE: the things you eat can largely affect you. if you need a big change, you better be ready to make a big move and that includes sacrifice and discipline at every stage of your life.
