I believe he gotta build his stamina, immunity that will help his recovery time. There start with basic workout and diet.

Kettle bells are a great option for those goals.

Kettle bells.

Long time ago, there was a discussion in this forum about kettle bells and cricket fitness. Kettle bell training was the best program to start my fitness training. It helped me develop strength and endurance without killing myself. It is an easy program to start, you need minimal equipment, and you can do it in your house.

This is what I'm after, do you have a set work out program for it? I have a set of Bells so this is Ideal.

As someone who survived the big C, I can tell you its been a pain for me to get back into shape, even after a couple of years. What has worked for me though, cardio at home about 15mins a day on an elliptical and I go to the gym three times for the week. As someone suggested, I do strictly compound exercises and usually stay at the gym 30-45 mins max. Theres a free app that I use (StrongLifts 5x5) that helps to track your progress and sets your routine for the day. Basically, each time you to the gym you have to complete three exercises and alternates between squats, bench press, over head press, barbell rows and deadlifts. Its a bit of fun and over before you know it.

Hope this helps...

I'll check this out thanks.

This is easy to start. Listen to your body and calibrate the intensity up or down as you need. I just kept it easy and simple. Once I felt strong, I increased intensity.

I'd keep it very simple mate.

1. Gym, strength, resistance training (i personally hate cardio at the gym, I'd rather go running or ride my bike) but if you want to run on a treadmill then thats up to you.
2. walk! get your steps up, take the stairs. you can lose weight without going to the gym if you walk enough and track your calories.
3. use my fitness pal to track your caloric intake. I would suggest you use a calculator to get an idea for how many calories you can eat. Its really easy. most barcodes scan into it. Plenty of online calorie calculators, but don't starve yourself, or you will fail (i tend to lose weight at around 2400 cal per day, but I'm a big unit, so my total daily expenditure is high).

Another trick I've learned is to add up your daily calories eg. 2000x7 days= 14000 for the week. this way if you come under 2000 on one day you can 'bank' these extra calories for the weekend if you like a beer. this keeps you in a deficit while still being able to enjoy things you like.

@Admin, can we potentially split the thread in two one about the exercise recommendation and one about diet?  To me personally, the diet discussion is masking the exercise discussion, which is what the OP asked for.

They sort of go hand in hand, exercise without diet can be fruitless. plus it seems to have calmed down now anyway.

A big heartfelt thanks to all who have contributed to the discussion.

Watch this video on it if you want to know how I've got to this opinion:

Great video!

They also talked about the peanut butter BS that's peddled by vegans which is qualitatively not the same protein as meat. Loved it!

Glad you enjoyed it. Those two are brilliant and always back their opinions with science, unlike that vegan propaganda garbage that was game changers
