  • After a long lay-off, what do?

    Greetings, BBM team.

    I’m currently in mandatory military service. I had not trained for 6 months, then started training about a month ago.
    I’ve already run beginner prescription.
    I plan to run it over several times, then move on to bodybuilding program.

    Should I maintain aerobic training frequency, duration same on beginner template ‘Week 1’ when I run it over?
    (2x times, 30mins)

    Thank you for the wisdom, in advance.

    p.s. I’ve just ordered my first peri-rx, whey-rx. Can’t wait to try it!

    I would end up running phase II and III of our beginner template and then, when no longer making progress, move onto the BB template. I would do the GPP programming from the BB template when doing that template rather than carry over the stuff from the Beginner Template.

      I wrote the question wrong. I wanted to edit it, but couldn’t.
      Thank you for the reply. I would try that way.

      One more additional question,
      I think I don’t have enough leg strength to do stationary bike as LISS modality(Muscles get tired before respiratory does).
      Would you recommend ‘brisk walking’ over cycling in this case?

      Thanks.

        I don't think that's likely at all, particularly if you're able to resistance train (and can walk briskly). I wouldn't expect your cardiorespiratory system to be "tired" during LISS either, rather your breathing rate should be slightly elevated above normal.

          Thanks for the explanation in detail !
          It seems I have a tendency to overshoot stuffs.
