First off, I want to lift. Badly. I cannot due to torn cartilage in my wrist from back in June. I am going to yet another doctor on Tuesday, where I will probably get an mri, though im fairly sure its a tfcc tear, how severe i don’t know. Thats beside the point though.
What I want to do since i know i will be out of lifting for a while (even though i’ve been out for the most part except for legs since June) is be productive. I am not lean, but im not fat (estimate around 18% bf, im 6 ft 2, 200 lbs now). I want to become lean while i cannot lift so that when i come back to lifting, I will be fairly lean though weak as hell. Yeah i know i’ll be pretty thin, but i’d rather be thin then skinny fat.
I don’t know what to do though since I can’t lift. Like how many times a week would be a good time to do cardio? Normally I would just lift, do maybe 2-3 days of cardio and let my eating take care of me. Without lifting though i don’t know what a good plan of action would be. I plan on still lifting legs once every 4 or 5 days, then i honestly don’t know about cardio. Just go running for 20 or so minutes 3-4 times a week? Advice?
