See below: Have a certified personal trainer go over a few times with you a safe workout regimenfor yoy . Once you feel comfortable and you can incorporate this into a work out gym regimen. Don't get frustrated working out is like riding a bicycle muscle has memory and it'll generally come back , go slow don't use heavyweights do more repetitions . Stretch before and after
