I just found out I have to have surgery and I will be unable to workout for 6 weeks. Can I pause my program or do I have to start all over?

  • Anyone else have surgery and then start working out again? Did you do an easier program before going back to the original one? I'm currently doing Cardio Sculpt.

    Always a good idea to consult your surgeon first.

    You should indeed consult your surgeon and your regular doctor first. Usually you will have some sort of physical therapy depending what the surgery is. You definitely will want to ease back into your workouts until your doctor clears you.

      Definitely consult your surgeon and PCP before starting up, as the recovery timelines vary greatly between surgeries.

      Thanks! I got the green light from my surgeon as long as I take it easy. He approved Recovery and/or True Beginner for the next 4 weeks and then I can get wild and crazy and do something more strenuous.
