Exercise progression guidelines?



Recommended Posts

First post, be gentle with me...

I spent Saturday reading a ton of stuff in the forums here, and now I can't find something after 3 days of trying on and off...

Someone kindly posted a pic of their doc-provided, very specific exercise guidelines for each of the post-op recovery weeks/periods. It was the most helpful plan I've seen in all my clicking around the internet. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, a re-post of that sheet or a link to the thread it's in would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Everyone will have different guides based on abilitiy, goals and resources.
Once you are on a stable diet where you are reaching you nutritional goals, and Water goals, you should be able to do any "normal" activity for a person of your stature (age, strength,) taking into account any injuries.

For a few weeks, or even longer, you would want to avoid abdominal exercises or exercises that use abdominals as part of core exercising (like dead lifts or lunges) and let your stomach and other parts heal from the surgery. Once it's healed, you can pretty much do anything.


What sort of guideline are you looking for? Walking, light bodyweight, weightlifting? Something simple to do at home?
