I have a second chance. I'm one lucky c**t.
Dr has cleared me to exercise again 6 months after my heart attack of unknown cause. I've been training gently for a 5k and can now get back to the gym.
I am not aloud (yet) to do any less than 15 reps so I'm gonna have to go quite light. I am hoping to get back to heavy lifting in the future, just waiting for some final decisions re my anomalous LAD and future management.
My goals are to build my muscles back. Strength (as in beast mode strength) isn't such a big issue for me anymore as I'm plenty strong enough for anything life will throw at me. I just want to look sexy(er) seeing as I'm now single due to all the bullshit of the last 6 months.
I was used to doing low rep, heavy weight squats, deadlift and overhead press. That's off the cards now and I am only training for the exercise and vanity now.
Any suggestions on programmes to follow? I'm wanting to lift twice a week as I'm running or swimming 3 days a week.
Weight 83 kg
Height 5, 10
I'm carrying a little bit of fat due to the last 6 months of inactivity but it's nothing major and I'm losing that now I'm exercising again.
