    Getting back to the gym & Stair stepper

    Hey everyone,

    I am just getting into the gym again after about a year (post COVID and college gym transition). A year ago I had a very stringent routine and was super happy with my gym. I was focused on gaining weight to build muscle, and I was comfortable lifting weights. Over this past year I lost all of the weight/muscle I put on and am nervous to start lifting at my new gym since I am small again and it has been so long. The only cardio I would ever do is the stair stepper, and I feel like if I start off just going and doing that I will slowly become comfortable with lifting in the new environment.

    My question is: does anyone incorporate the stair stepper as a primary workout? If so what does your routine look like? ex (stair stepper everyday for x amount of time), and what are your results?

    I mean you're a girl, you don't have to be afraid to look small. People won't think about you either. Also Goodluck

    I’ve come back from so many injuries hangovers and even from being at work I don’t care what I have it do to get my body back in it. I’d keep it for a cardio but do enough to get you back to where you want to be

    I would suggest to just try to get your body slowly back into the swing of things. Maybe weightlifting workouts full body 3 times a week and cardio as needed. Tough to get specific with things. The link below is a good place to get started.
