Can't run.
Can't cycle.
Can't do owt other than become obese.
Anyone know any upper body / core stuff? anaerobic as opposed to aerobic.
Calf goosed so must not include leg work.
Dieting is not an option. :-)
Muchas thankyouos.

Swimming?
There is a chap in a wheelchair at my gym. I'm thinking he doesn't do a lot of leg work :)

Canoeing! Not as expensive as you might think. Most clubs its about £2 an evening for boat hire and, er, that's it. Very relaxing, out on the water, good for your core and upper body, meet lots of v nice people

Are legs out completely or just calfs?

If your calfs can take it, heavy lifts 3x a week

eg

Mon - squat, chin-up, benchpress,

Wed - deadlift, military (shoulder) press, bent over row

Fri - as Monday

that's a typical begninner program as it gets heavier, more rest between similar exercise will be needed. You can build the powerhouse engine ready to be tuned when you get back to running

PS, squat is quite possibly the single best core exercise you can do. Every muscle in your trunk is used holding that weight on your shoulders

Got something to say?
