Remind us your age, training history and injury history? Can help us give better advice.
Assuming you're late 20s/early 30s and have been pretty sedentary for a couple years, I think your best route is to start gently. Go for long walks, as well as non explosive strength training. This will gradually strengthen your connective tissues and get you ready for more intense training later on.
Thanks bud, Glad to see you still on these forums. Rosstraining is where my interest in fitness began. I'm 26 now, got two degrees behind me
haha. First one didn't pan out so I had to retrain. I was in good shape last year, I got down to 190 lbs, But i did it too intense and lost the weight too fast.I am back to 255 lbs roughly now. Dropping the weight quickly caused me to have low blood pressure, super low resting pulse, and blood sugars were messed up, I would even get dizzy in the gym. I actually stopped training regularly and ate more to counteract the symptoms(done medical testing, found nothing "wrong"). Eventually, after gaining back weight, I was back healthy and stable again. So my approach this time won't be as extreme, I intend on using exercise more then a brutal harsh eating regime.I was in school up until April. So within the last 2-3 months, I do hikes / walks probably every second or third day. Was lifting weights as well at the gym. However, I want to utilize my home gym and start training towards conditioning again.
For injuries, no recent injuries(thank god). Although I did break my back years ago, which has since healed fully. So Core is a must for me, that way I can keep that lower back strong and healthy!
