Hey Guys Im pretty new at all this and would like some advice if it's not too much bother. I'm male, 24, 5'11" and 74kg... Last year I was a victim of assault, I was jumped by two guys in the street who caved my skull in with a large glass ashtray... I've been in and out of hospital for the last 8 months and have 2 months left before the docs say they've dona all they can do.
Understandably I've lost a bit of weight (12kg) over this period and my aerobic fitness has gone right out of the window...
My primary aim at this point is to regain my aerobic fitness and to regain at least some of the weight of lost, and also trim off some body fat if possible.
I've always been a big runner and swimmer (formerly a commercial diver) but since neurosurgury I find both of these activities cause major headaches (less so with swimming), but i am now in the process of setting up a home gym (on a budget).
I have so far:
a rowing machine (magnetic)
10kg dumbell (one only)
various weights (2.5kg - 20kg)
I am trying to work out a weekly ruitine to stick to but dont have the full equipment list to follow most of the ones i read about, nor the understanding of bodybuilding to write my own..
Any advice or help you guys could give me would be great, whether its a ruitine, what not to do, equipment to buy, what not to buy ect...
At present and for the next 2 months I am free 24/7 so really wanna make the most of this time while I can.
Also looking to buy: bench press, dumbells and skipping rope..
