Hey, im newbie to this stuff.
Ive recently done damage to my knee and am on crutches which is preventing me from doing my usual 'workouts'. I can pretty much just do sit-ups at the moment and im bored suggestions for something new to try?? Thnx :)

Lol. Does hopping count for anything? It is so frustrating having to just stop. Hoping to start swimming soonish

Swimming sounds good. It's so hard to do a decent workout with just one leg. I feel for you,

That's awesome to hear. In that case, I would say, to continue with what you've been doing so far. If you want, slowly increase on the exercises, that way you can recover faster. The sooner you recover, the more of your normal routine and exercises you'll be able to do.

Thats my fear Luca, so far i have changed my diet to next to no carbs lots of additional protein through the day. Stretching, weights and sit-ups. Il let you know how i go at swimming - its something that doesnt require too much effort. Can you put weight on your leg - maybe bike riding???

Hi Rickie, how's your knee doing? Are you able to do more stuff and move freely?
