When I go back out there should I start slow or just go back to the same intensity that I was training at before I was sick?
Throughout the three weeks that I was down, I smoked copious amounts of Marijuana.
we joke a ton, but i hope you are OK.
you should be fine when you jump back in to your routine. i always notice that my muscles respond better to a workout after i've had some rest. i might not be able to get the reps or weight that i'm used to, but the muscles feel like they're doing a better job of building themselves back up and becoming stronger.
at 37 you're in very good shape. i wouldn't sweat it much at all. warm up and stretch before and after, and you should be solid.
maybe we can start taking PED's now that all of our heroes are being outed
we'll show up in the lounge on swole!
