You haven't gained much weight while being away from training so it sounds like your main need is to tone up some of what you've lost while in treatment. Only thing I can say is go light, don't rush into it by knowing what you could do prior to being diagnosed and try to reach that intensity. It will come in time, so listen to what your body is telling you. Last thing you want to do is wear yourself out physically by trying to do too much too soon.

Good luck with your treatments, we're pulling for you.
Cheers for the advice, just back out of hospital last friday (spent another boring 10 days in there) we'll found a site that kept me occupied ill share it with you's

I have been researching loads and reading rdj's nutritional advice, guys a bit of a genius on that front. Wont be able to step back in to the gym until late sept at the earliest (cant wait) but i went down to see some of my amateur buddies fight on a local card a while ago, was so good to see live boxing again.

Unfortunately iv come up with that i might not be able to even start strength training easily, i will be able to head back to the club for (skipping, bag, pad work, circuit and interval running) and in the gym have been advised to do peripheral heart flow training (high reps, 4 sets circut style 4 exercises and interchanging uper body, lower, upper, lower) if that makes any sense to you.

Btw iv gained a good bit as in my body changed from 154 and quite lean to 140 lean from treatment 9 i lossed all muscle mass i had) then threw on 20 something pounds of fat and fluid :/ disaster, oh and prob comfort eating too im not going to lie.

Anyway going light seems real good advice and thanks for the feedback really appreciate it. Thanks a lot for the backing
