I had a stroke that caused me to go into an induced coma which I was in for about 5mos and after a year of physical therapy I want to get my strength back.

I lift 3lb(My Current Limit) dumbell's for 45mins a day split up into 3 15min intervols a day and I do this 3 days a week with walking 10,000steps everyday rain or shine.

I also eat about 70G's of protein a day.

So do you think I will gain muscle by doing these things I used to eat 120g a day but I figured with me being so weak I shouldnt eat that much im just now starting again so what do you think?

Thank You very much :)

I think you should also do other workouts for your back and not always stick with the same one. Also I'd eat natural protein.
