Away from the gym for one year. Best way to get back into it?

Hello everyone,

Been lifting weights on and off for about 15 years. This past year is the longest I haven't touched a weight. It is exactly 1 year that I have not worked out. No pushups, no weights, no cardio, nothing.

I typically work out in a bodybuilding routine (ex: Chest/Biceps on Mon, Back on Tues, Shoulders/Triceps Wed etc, etc)

My first day back should I just get right back into my routine ? First day, Chest/Biceps ? Or should I do some kind of full body workout ?

I am going to experience extreme soreness again like a person who never touched a weight. I'm just trying to see the best way to "get back into it" ?

Btw, I am natural. No supplements other than over the counter stuff like creatine etc.

Always start back slowly make sure you are fully warmed up and work up in weights progressively until what you used to do. Muscle memory will kick in pretty quick

Ok thanks. Now would you go right into your routine you had before (of course with lighter weight) or do some kind of full body workout your first week back ?

Personally I would go back to my split routine but full body 2-3 times per week is fine what I can say is do what’s best for you and your lifestyle and what you enjoy doing also.

You are going to be sore maybe and more instinctive training is needed. Train what is not sore until your body becomes more accustom to lifting.

I’m just getting back into the routine after a long time off as well. Fully agree with Darren. Start back up slowly, warm up, even throw in some stretching. Dont overwhelm your joints with heavy weights at first. Good luck bro! Stay with it.

Any thing that is done after a long absence will lead to improvements. Full body 3x week for a few weeks switching over to splits could get as much benefit as anything. From the studies I have seen full body early on yield at least as much as anything.

I would just jump back into the old routine with less weight and less volume. Add more reps and sets as you get back into it over the first couple months.

I just did this myself, since the gyms were closed here for so long. Now I'm back to doing 30 sets per workout, just at lower weights compared to 2019.
