Just getting over being ill for a week and a half. I have not had the energy or strength to exercise at all. How does anyone return to a exercise routine without injury after being ill?

You can take some Short workouts that trains the place You were injuered in if You have trouble with training, but if not You can train the same way that You did before (that was what I did and) but you have to test out how hard You can go.

Start gradually increasing intensity after each couple if workouts and increase the amount of food u eat gradually to get ur metabolism up again cause I'm sure when u were sick u did not eat much so they key is to gradually increase everything, hope this helps :)

Thanks for the reply. I have no appetite at all. I eat the bare minimum right now. So your right a gradual increase in healthy foods would benefit me most. I will work on that soon as i still don't feel like my old self.

Yep, just get back at it. First it sucks, just like when you started, but your body will remember soon how to act ;) 

I am sick right now and i already hate the thought i need to start exercising again, 'cause lets face it: it's never fun after having a break. :D
