Hey there, i’m a new member and long time reader looking for some advice and direction. After reading the two “must read for beginners” articles and meandering about the site my interest for starting a program is at a peak. Here is what I am working with:
Weight: 200 lbs
Body fat (from pinch test several months back): ~22-24%
I feel i fit the skinny-fat profile quite accurately :\
Physical obstacles: Compressed my spine a while back in a big bike wreck (have a movie of it on youtube if anyone is interested), injured right rotator cuff, had Osgood-Schlatter’s disease (knees still not great).
What I want: Advice on a beginners training program with which I may safely make gains while working around my injuries. I have a great desire to get in shape. I am not happy with my body as it is right now and am ready to make change. I also love being active although I cannot really participate in the sports I used to due to injury and commitment to school.
I have access to my university gym.
Any input will be greatly appreciated. Point me in the right direction!
