Hi everyone. I am a 37 yr old, 221lb, 5ft9" female looking to drop some serious pounds. Formerly into olympic lifting and boxing, I had to cease these due to chronic knee problems. I have returned to the gym, but am very limited on the kind of training I can do over the next 6months, since so many options involve pressuring the knees.
Can any of you help me with some workout suggestions. My doc forbid me to run, jump, bike (unless on the recumbent stationary bike) or do any of the things that would normally help me to rapidly loose weight. With that in mind, anything that you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.
I am currently doing straight leg pulls from just below the knee, abductor and abductors, leg extensions and curls and the recumbent bike. Please help.
I would also like suggestions for a good fat burner. I used to take HOT-ROX, but have found that it seriously alters my mood for the worse and I break out in pimples after 1.5 weeks of using. Is there anything else out there that could assist me with weightloss without feeling like im going to rip someone’s head off then go into the corner to cry?
Again - PLEASE HELP!
