This time last year, I was in some of my best shape .. however over the past year it's gone the complete other way. I haven't gained much weight (says the lying scale, I assume) however I have definitely lost most of the muscle tone and increased the midsection (as expected).
What would be suggested to be the best transition back into the routines?
Prior to stopping, I was going 4-5 times a week, for an hour to an hour and a half, doing general workouts as;
- Always starting with 10 minutes of warmup cardio
- Then the lifting being either;
- Usually ending with a solid 20 minutes of good cardio to finish the work out
This worked very well for me and if I did keep up, I think I'd be one happy guy. The lull came and I am looking to get back to it.
Would it be wise to do a more limited workout, or just say.. lower weight sets? And slowly work my way back?
No real injury concerns
