I am 39 years old permanent user of crutches and have been doing the basic SS on mon/wed/fri and half an hour jog /limp on a trampoline jog piece of equipment. Due to owning a dog i also end up walking for 45 / 50 minutes every day. My crutches force this to be more Eliptical in nature than i can avoid. To counter this i take in around 3500 kcals and currently weigh 12 and a haf stone roughly. This is where i need help / advice = am i doing too much cardio?, too much of the wrong kind of cardio ? or does what im doing seem fine?. Any tips or suggestions for needed alteration / improvement would be fantastic.
You are on crutches but on SS? I dont know how, but props.
I cant really answer your question unless you tell me what your goals are? If it is fat loss then that is a function of diet, which in that case just slowly eat less. Check the diet section for exacts.
Crutches are due to a disability Generalised Dystonia. This for me comes in waves of totally clear or severely hampered depending on how lucky i am that day. ( tried a link but havent posted enough )
My main question is as im trying to bulk am i doing too much cardio with the walking etc, and if that is the case what can i do to correct it ? Fingers crossed what im doing is fine.
It really depends on how much your body requires to gain. Read the stickies in the diet section. If you do cardio eat another 500 cals or so to make up for cals burned.
mad props for being on crutches and still training def an inspiration
