What do you recommend as a weight training program?

Once your doctor has cleared you and you have been instructed in use of the equipment, I recommend a light 20-minute cardiovascular warm-up such as an exercycle, treadmill, or stairmaster to loosen your muscles. Next, a good stretching routine. Remember the proper order is to warm up lightly then stretch. It has been shown that only 2 or 3 days a week maintains good strength. I recommend light weights and high (12-30) repetitions. This is the safest way to train injury free.
