A little background to start off, I had a nasty accident in 2014 that left me without the ability to work out or ride a bike. The latter of which has been my main sport for the last ten years.
In january of this year I was finally cleared to start doing sports again, I weighed in at 130 lbs, I was more or less a walking skeleton. Granted I’m only 5’7, but it’s a bricklike 5’7.
I joined a gym and started lifting, the last time I had touched a dumbbell was ten years earlier before I joined the army.
Fast forward 11 months and I’m a much healthier 170lbs.
And here’s the reason for my thread, most of this weight has packed on from my waist up. There’s very few leg exercises that I can do without pain.
I can’t squat below parallel, I can’t have the bar behind my neck, nor resting on my chest. (Goblet squats kind of work, but still no below parallel.)
Any suggestions for something I can do twice a week in a ppl split?
