Getting Back Into Working Out

I'm a dad, lazy and doughy and have not worked out for 3 years. I used to be in great shape, and I am just getting back into my old routine of cardio, lifting, steam.

My question is how quickly can I get back into my old routine, how hard can I push myself? I worked out on Wednesday, was pretty sore. Would it be ok to head back today?

my personal trainer and several books say to workout out almost everyday. If you're sore from the weights only do cardio. a couple of books suggested doing weights one day and cardio the next. keep moving, even if its only a 30min walk, it'll help with the soreness.

Of course it's ok to head back-- but work different muscles. If your abs are sore, work your lower body. If everything is sore, have a heavy cardio day. Good luck, and keep us updated!

You can do cardio pretty much 5 or 6 days a week, but with weight training you should only work the same muscle groups every other day. According to my personal trainer, how you work your abs depends on whether you want a lean look (most days) or a muscular look (work 'em hard every other day).

For a good idea of how hard you can push yourself with cardio, get a heart rate monitor or use those grips on the cardio machines at the gym if they have them. Keeping your pulse in the right training range will help you last longer and keep from overdoing it.

With weights, stick to the machines and avoid free weights until you've got a good idea of what your body can handle. The last thing you want is to tear an intercostal (between ribs) muscle or damage your rotator cuff with too-heavy weights leading to compromised form.

Ease into it...OR ELSE

You risk getting burnt out too quickly! It isn't too soon to workout again today, however do try and vary your routine from yesterday's workout. Perhaps, shorten the duration and definitely workout a different muscle group. Good for you for getting back into the swing of things...just remember to take it easy in order to keep up with the new lifestyle.

well im only 19 but ive been working out since i can remember if your interested in getting big and ripped ide go with my routine it works awesome for me monday- back any bicepts. Tuesday chest and tricepts. Wednesday traps and shoulders. thursday legs . And you can do abs pretty much everyday if u push yourself calfs you want to do every other day and cardio is something you want to try and do everyday that you lift before (recomended) and make sure you use your time window wisely you want atleast 60 grams of protein in within 45 minutes of your workout to maximize the amount of mass your muscles can intake before they start to heal. best of luck just write me back i cant really put all the details on here.

Go kindof easy for a while there old timer - and get lots of rest and protein. Listen to your body

I say start with the elliptical and a full body medium weight circuit every day and work your way up. - Oh and skip that steam crap - do that as a reward when you are back in shape - (I know it is nice but you've got no time for that man!)

I was in totally crappy shape two years ago - now -friggin' best shape of my life - but I ramped it up really slow - that is the key ! ! Getting back into shape is a pain in the rear when you are out - don't let it happen again bro !
