If you’ve already read our ‘Best Practice’ article for returning to the gym, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge you need when it comes to returning to strength training appropriately. What the article does is teach you how you should return. What it doesn’t go into is what you should be doing in the gym.
For that, we’ve turned to KYMIRA endorsed personal trainer, Nathan Kennedy. He has put together two workouts for you to follow - the first workout is a leg-based workout, designed to rebuild your strength and stability and help you perform better in your chosen sport.
The second workout is a back-focussed workout, to help you strengthen the postural muscles that would have suffered and probably weakened through a lot less movement during lockdown.
We suggest you watch the videos, listen to Nathan’s technique advice and follow the workouts. Make sure you warm up thoroughly and start with light weights – you can always increase the weight later, but you want to practice the techniques and movements with a very light weight in the beginning.
