Sorry im new, posted this in the wrong place! About Exercising
I had an accident in November 2019 and had to learn to walk again, I can still only walk for a few minutes and am waiting for 2 surgeries. I have piled on weight and am so unfit, im mostly housebound, i have been swimming on and off for a few weeks and was about to join a gym but all that has stopped now as i am in tier 4. I would love some advice on you tube work outs or anything else. My leg is very very painful, i can only do low impact exercises for my legs, my core is very weak and i suffer from back pain, i also need some upper body training maybe something to get my heart rate up. I have been looking at seated exercises but most seem either for much older people or too hard for my leg. I do plan to loose weight too, i started smoking after my accident after a year off them and have stopped for about 10 weeks now, so am ready to address my diet. I am 52 before my accident i was pretty chubby but walked my dogs 3-4 times a week (in fact thats how the accident happened) i want particularly into fitness but had been into open water swimming for a while a few years ago, not sure if i could get my wetsuit over my bad leg and its a bit too cold now for me.
