Quick question. I told myself I would start today (Monday) I just got off work. I am going to the gym at 10pm. It is my first day back in MONTHS. What should Ido when I get there. I am going to get back on Black Powder. But I do not want to look like a lost puppy when I get there. Any suggestions?

depending on how hard you go at it, the soreness will be a big factor to prepare for.

go for dips, pullups and other body weight exercises. If you're feeling big bench your bodyweight (unless you're 250+)

I ended up not going today, I do not have a good enough idea of what to do right now. I used to be 170, I went up to 191. I am confused. =/

I feel the same way. only thing i did workout wise is pull ups...i feel like your 2nd pic

edit: after bein out the gym myself about 3-4 weeks. i plan on hittin chest/tri and doing some cardio. Ima use DB's and some of the machines so i dont letthe difference (of being weight wise) deter me as much as say barbell benching would. good luck.

i'm about to hit the gym for the first time in a while also.... it hasn't been as long as the OP for me, but it's the first time in a couple weeks.

i'm planning on doing cardio for about 10 minutes, but after that i'm not sure what lifts i should be working on.

i was gonna make today my upper body day. i'm thinking... bench, dumbbell press, chest flys, shoulder flys, bicep curls... i'm not sure what else. cansomeone give me a solid "upper body" routine for one day?

I have to call ducktales. That's too drastic of a change. Why in the world would you let yourself get like that?

Yeah definitely follow thetim's advice.....get your diet right, you'll drop weight immediately. Then work on bulking up, you are very cut in the firstpic but you have no real mass.

I'm in the same boat as you OP, but for some reason I have no motivation to get back on the diet and start working out again.

Im confused.

Did you used to go to the gym, or was your metabolism just naturally high?

Attention? I'm looking for insight. I obviously have no motivation/ idea of how to get back. Every time I've posted it I've got 0_0 responses butthat was in General. That is why I am in here legitely trying to make a change. It is summer time and I have all the time in the world. Please help...
