Restarting and ProgressingAs we’re nearing the end of March the gyms are getting emptier and emptier. I spoke to a few personal trainers and they unanimously agree that most people just don’t stick to their goals – and it’s the same every year.

I got sick first week of March with an ongoing chest and nasal congestion. I spoke to a doctor once whether it’s safe to exercise when sick. His advised a light workout as long as the congestion is ABOVE the neck.

And so I was out of commission, but having plenty of rest and going through my own common cold recovery steps. Most of tips gave me a great deal of relief, but unfortunately because of the viral infection being rather strong, I could not get rid of it fast enough.

It’s only in the last few days that the illness moved out of my chest and I ended up only with a stuffy nose. Excited about this development I packed my gym gear and with big smile and bushy tail rushed to the gym.

It has been a couple of weeks of inactivity, so I started very slow to get back into it. If you haven’t been to the gym in a very long time or haven’t been exercising in ages, please start slow as well, but make progress daily. Most likely you have to go through a detox program which is easy with the 6-day FIT Reset program.

I started with 10 minutes of steam room to warm up and clear my breathing. Then I moved to the elliptical with level 5 difficulty and a relaxed pace. After 5 minutes I increased the resistance to 10 and kept my heart rate around 130 by adjusting the pace.

After about 10 minutes I slowly increased the resistance to achieve 140 heart rate. I stayed at this level till the end of the 25-minute cardio workout.

After the cardio I did 2 sets of 10 reps of push-ups, leg presses, and chest presses with a very low weight. That felt just perfect. I finished the workout with 2 more minutes in the steam room and left the gym.

At home I had a light FIT Rebuild protein shake and a freshly squeezed veggie juice (I purchased a Hamilton Beach Juice Extractor last week and I love it).

I repeated this same workout 1 more time after 2 days. Tomorrow I will increase the intensity of the weight workout – say, I’ll do 3 sets of 12 reps.

The procedure is similar to when you’re just starting out. Keep it light at first, work within your limits, keep at it (ideally every day), keep progressing (more sets, more reps, more weight), and above all enjoy it:

Listen to your favourite music, workout with a partner, or be in competition with yourself. If you need help with exercises, have a look at the Official FIT Website website and click on the Exercise tab, or check out the links right under the BLOGROLL on the right margin of this web page.
