training after being sick?

  1. training after being sick?


    I'm curious as to how I lean myself back into the gym after being sick for about 5 days.I'm 90% better now and want to get back in the gym. Should I do a full body just to stimulate all my muscle groups since its been a week? Or should I pick up where I left off (back/calves) on my routine? I know a week isn't that long but that coupled with 1.5 days of not eating really sucked. What should I do here?


  2. I'd ease into it, man. If I miss time at the gym, my first session back is usually fairly relaxed. Moderate to high reps to get your connective tissues revved back up and maybe some cardio if you feel up to it.

    Don't be that sick guy in the gym, though. If you need a few more days rest its not going to hurt your physique. Sure, you'll look flat because the carbs aren't there and the volume is gone, but give it a few days and you'll be right back in business.

    Good luck.
    Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.

    Thanks man. I felt better yesterday and today I feel good. No fever or anything. I think I'm just gonna full body 1-2 exercises per body part 10-15 reps just to stim the muscles.

  4. Being sick sucks. I think you have a good plan outlined, jumping back into your regular routine would run down you immune system.
    Self application for me, I upped my intake of antioxidants for a wk after I was ill, just some reassurnce.
