If you've had a lot of time off, then your body is going to respond like a beginner. You don't have to start out like a complete beginner, but your body will be in that stage for a while, so you need to recondition it back to training again - this can be done using the compounds (or whatever you were doing before) and lifting for the general 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps for a few weeks, and then you can progress back to what you were doing. You can start off with a split, or just do full-body sessions ~3 times a week for about a month, and then get back into splits. So many options - just make sure to tailor your training (weights, cardio, and flexibility) towards your goals.

I suggest that you choose fat loss or muscle gain if you're just starting back, since recomping is very dependent on your NUTRITION - although, newbie gains can include recomping, albeit UNintentionally.
If you don't know where to start, then I recommend getting yourself a trainer and having a training programme (AND nutrition plan - can't forget your nutrition, since that's what is going to make or break your success with gaining muscle mass!) written specifically for YOU for your goals and needs. If you can't afford a professional trainer, then take some time out to research and look around, because there is a TON of information out there!
Start by reading The 3 Keys to Fat Loss - it contains comprehensive advice and information on nutrition, supplementation (you only need the Basic Staples - and training for fat loss (the nutrition is the same for gaining mass, except for caloric intake - the same goes for training), and it even includes sample training programmes for the beginner and more experienced trainee.

yea thanks i have read those links and where reall helpfull.what i meant by how long and what to expect from newibie gains was what does newibie gains mean?i have heard it is the only time you can gain muscle and lose fat at the same time ? i all so heard it is the only time you can get gains even if your diets not perfect etc.if that makes any since i was not really asking for like how much weight i will gain or loss personley.just what do people mean when they say newibie gains and how long do most people get newibie gains like first month week year etc.

oh yea all so what is recomping? i think it means loosing fat and gaining lean muslce at the same time.and if it is that is exactly what i need and want to do.and if that is the case how long before recomping stops being possable with out your diet beiing spot on?

No, it's NOT the only time that a recomp can occur, and an experienced trainee who knows how to manipulate their body and the factors determining its success can do this all the time - for example, I pretty much perpetually recomp.
No, it is NOT the only time you can make gains if your diet is not perfect - for example, again I'll use myself and say that my diet is the worst diet ever and I would certainly not recommend anyone follow my example, but because I know my body, I still get results by manipulating it and training factors. "Perfect" is a relative term and specific to each individual, even though there are general "guidelines" to what constitutes a "perfect" diet. Having a nutrition plan focused on your goals and needs is what you should have, and as long as that is right, then you should get results.
If you have to ask these questions, then I really do recommend that you get yourself a trainer who will individualize everything for you - and explain what they have done and why, so that you understand.
