since i've been to the gym. Just recently i've joined up, with the ongoing goal of getting back on track and improving physically. I'm 5'11", and was 175lbs before my trip. After my trip, and a year later, I've lost about 30lbs. Most of what i've lost was fat, but i've also lost a lot of muscle mass too. I've kept to a fairly healthy diet, cutting out nearly all junk food, but I still have yet to improve the quantity per meal, and per day. What's some advice for hitting the gym after so long? I went last Thursday and had a moderate intensity upperbody session; all muscles have recovered fine since then except my tri's.. they're sore as hell to the point I can't bend them more than 90 degrees. Today I go back, but for cardio only. Then Thursday again for lowerbody. Should I be frequenting more? less? Not as intense? 75% of the weight I was lifting a few years ago, and increase by 8-10% each session? help + thnx in advance.
