I contracted COVID in late November 2021. Headache, fever, fatigue, muscle aches, diarrhea, fever. Symptoms slowly subsided and began feeling better around Christmas. I returned to the gym as I did almost every day for the last fifteen years. I noticed my cardio fitness level had decreased and I expected that not being in the gym for a month. I noticed my cough returned but more frequent. I went to the doctor and after a chest x-ray, the radiologist noticed an infection in my lung. My doctor started me on an antibiotic and I'm feeling better. I also noticed my cardio fitness level is slowly improving. Thanks, Rob Krok

When returning to the gym, did you start with resistance training and slowly add cardio? What was and is your routine?
