  1. Someone just needs to start. You see the progress, get excited and bang you have been training enthusiastically for six months and entered the mode. I like this strategy, I tested it on myself after a two-month break. At first it was, of course, unusual)

  2. Depends on what the break was related to. If you just got sick for a week, and then the weather is somehow rainy, and in general there are a lot of things to do – and then six months have passed, and the press has hidden somewhere. Then the question is about returning the sport to the habit after a long absence. This is not a particularly difficult option. Remember why you did it before. Start with small loads (you won't be able to start with large loads if the break was long). Force yourself to exercise regularly (once a week is already regular, although not particularly productive). Gradually increase the load and frequency of classes to return to the previous level (of course, how quickly you will return to it depends on your previous level). It sounds as simple as it really is. Ordinary fans of evening jogging and hanging on the horizontal bar will have enough for a couple of weeks to forget about the half-year break. But Usain Bolt may not have enough of a lifetime to return to the Olympic level in six months of complete absence of training.
    Therefore, a significant break in training due to an occupational injury is not so rosy catching up. A lot depends on the degree of injury and the level of the athlete. It is not uncommon for professionals to fail to return to their previous level after serious injuries or even end their career altogether.
