Returning to the Gym

After a long few months away from the gym its finally time to return. If you haven't been keeping as active from home over the last few months, now might be a good time to prepare:

1. Revise Your Workout Plan

It's been a while. Take some time to revise the workout plan you were on before isolation. Don't feel bad if you think you have regressed, we've all found it difficult to maintain our gains. Now is the time to get back on track. 

Not feeling as strong? Start with some 5x5 compound lifts and gradually work your way back up to where you were.

Lost mass? Make sure to add some 4x8 hypertrophy exercises to your routine.

Gained weight? Burn those calories with some High Intensity Interval Training!

 

2. Revise Your Nutrition

Eating habits changed? No doubt. Use a tool such as this calorie calculator to help you adjust your nutrition as you return to training. Be sure to check our range of proteins, aminos and carbs to help you get the most out of your nutrition.

 

3. Take it Slow

The worst thing you could do now is go too hard on your first day back and injure yourself. Take it slow and focus on form. Aim to return to how you were training a few months ago over the course of the next few weeks (not days!).

 

4. Get Good Sleep

It goes without saying that good sleep is vital for recovery. Enough said.

 

Now, time to get back to the grind...
