Returning to the gym or sport for the first time after a few months off (or starting out for the first time)
Gyms are gradually re-opening around the world following lock downs. This is awesome for those of us who love the gym! But some care does need to be taken to avoid getting injured when you jump back in. This is something I think is often neglected, perhaps because most people are not aware of how important it is and what a role it can play when aiming to avoid any hiccups or set backs when you're getting back to fitness.
This applies for people who have decided to take up a boot camp, or running, or a more intense daily challenge (e.g. doing 100 burpees). Starting doing something all of a sudden when you have previously been doing not much is where problems can arise. Gradually building up is one way to help to prevent injuries or pains cropping up.
I understand how frustrating it can be when you're at peak motivation and just want to jump in. There are ways to exercise daily while still keeping injury prevention in mind. Here are a few things to monitor when you're planning your return.
Remember it depends on how much you've been doing in the break, too. Consider how much you have been doing. For example if you've been walking every day, you will still have some good loading capacity in your legs and adding a few jogs in isn't that much of a stretch; compared to someone who has perhaps been completely sedentary over the break.
If you're a weight lifter, and have been doing body weight exercises regularly in the lock down, you may be able to tolerate returning to training every day, but may still need to look at the intensity of your workouts (how heavy they are) over the first couple of months.
