Restarting...

    I'm now recovered after being extremely ill for the last couple of weeks. Prior to that I was 5 weeks into the RJ muscle-building programme and it was going fine. Unfortunately, due to my illness I wasn't able to work out and I haven't been able to eat very much at all either.... I can see the fat loss and obviously there's been muscle loss as well :-(

    So, my question is: Should I restart the programme, or repeat part of it or try to do some sort of recovery first or what?

    Advice and motivation would be appreciated icon_biggrin.gif

    Glad that you are feeling better. I hate to think of such a cutie being sick.

    I'd say restart and take stock after a week or two to see how quickly you've caught up.

    Agreed - start back at the beginning and decide how fast you can ramp back up. I had sinus surgery this past January and it knocked me down for a couple of weeks as well. When I got started again, I tried to go balls to the wall and ended up splattering on said wall.

    I don't know if you're temperamentally similar, but that would be my one caution - don't try to push yourself too hard since that won't help you in the long run anyway. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

    Since it's a really intense workout, what has your doctor said about this question?
