I am having surgery at my 8wk mark of the challenge and won't be able to do upper body stuff for about 4wks, I can do lower body but probably with only light weights or body weight and will only be able to walk...no running.
Should I just start over when I'm cleared? What options do I have?
hi im at 6.5 weeks and have to have surgery in 2 days. Have been told no swimming, running or heavy lifting etc for 4 weeks and then no ab work until 8 weeks.
My trainer has advised me to keep eating clean throughout to keep my bodyfat down and i'm going to swap my running and swimming for walking until i can build to a gentle jog.
Annoying as iv really begun to see ab improvement and i really dont want to lose my upper body muscles iv built so far etc - but needs must ......
Stay positive the good work you'v put in so far will have improved your health and speed your recovery !!
good luck with the recovery !!
I say do what you can do day by day dont make it worse so you wont be able to finish but i would just keep eating right and start back with a new 12 weeks after you are able to start working out again.
