Hello coaches! and anyone else reading!
Last week my coach asked me to come back to team.
I've been out since march.
I want to go back, but I know it'll be a struggle getting back in shape!

Is there any advice on what I should do to build up endurance and strength and flexibility before stepping back onto team?
I know I can just do stretches and some running, but I don't know what my coach will expect from me.
I competed L7 last year, btw.

ANY ideas/thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Stretching is a big one..

Skill repetition will help, even if it's just 3-5 kips in a row, or free hip-hand to free hip hand.. whatever place youre at..

Strength will come back with conditioning, but dont expect to be able to do everything you did before. Please, dont push yourself too hard if youre not ready. BE aware of your body, and keep yourself safe.

Really.. you should pop back in really quickly, and feel right at home if youre ready. Some things may not go quite as expected, but they will fix themselves as time goes on.

Good luck! And welcome back :-D
