Hello all, I am new here and will have a few questions, but a little about me.
I finally have decided to get my life back in order and get back in shape and get healthy again. I have let myself go for quite a long time. I am 34 and have realized I abhor the way I look and feel
I am 6'1", 250lbs and have set myself a goal of getting back to 190lbs.
I have started myself on a strict diet of about 1200-1500 calories a day and have been doing about 30mins of cardio each day for the past 2 weeks. I have started seeing results and have dropped about 7-8 lbs already. This is quite a change for me considering I sit in cubicle all day long and would usually eat pancakes, bacon and eggs for breakfast, Burger King for lunch and pizza for dinner and drink a case of beer every weekend. needless to say I have cut all of that out.
I am wanting to add weight training into my routine and came across the WBB routine, which looks like a good place to start.
My big concern is the leg training portion, I have absolutely horrible knees and any sort of squatting or leg curl like exercises cause my knees to horribly grind and pop.
I was wondering if there are any other exercises that might be suitable for someone with knee problems?
Also should I wait to start my weight training while I am working on the weight loss portion, due to my diet and low caloric intake?
Thanks for any input
