First lets be clear here, I am high as I am writing this but what I say is the truth.

3 Years ago I had my major Heart Surgery that kinda saved my life and gave me a 2nd chance for life, but not without its challenges into having that good life 2nd chance.

Halfway during Recovery from the Surgery my back gave out and I lost all the muscle strength in my back. It kinda hurt like when I was trying to walk because it felt like a steel bar was on my back. And after 6 (can't spell) Chiropractors (all good, auto correct!) I started physical therapy.

They tested my will and my strength and pushed it to its limit and maybe even past that. After 3 times a week for 6 months I had finally graduated my physical therapy, I just wish my grandmother could of been here because she passed December of last year. But Shes watching over me now and I promised her to forgive the people that have hurt me in my life and to always make sure I am trying to better myself.

So even before she passed I started my own little workout to only last one hour for each day. I started with lifting a water jug over my head from my waist with my arms all the way down to my legs 25 times at times then over time I am now to 200 times. But the water jug broke and now I am using my chair stool that has a nice padded side to it so if I get too out of it I can rest it on my chest that has my heart surgery scar on it for a bit then carry on. Anyways I lay on the floor and lift that up about 30 times now. After that I do bridging that is like a crab walk but with no walk and just moving your hips up with your legs. I do those 100 times each with holding for 5 seconds each time I go up.

Doctors say my spinal disk is being slowly fused with my hip bone.

Anyways what do you think?

200 is too many reps maybe. Im still studying to be a personal trainer, but you want to build muscle without wearing out anything too much. I personally like more weight in reps of 15-20 only 1-2 sets.

anything above 15 is cardio.

you are using oxidative phosphorlation energy systems, which is basically fat for energy....which is cardio

if you want to build muscle...
>you must increase volume
>people who increase strength increase volume better than those who dont
>people who train for strength have genetic markers that indicate higher rates of hypertrophy
>people who train for strength have higher rates of myoprotein synthesis
>people who train for strength have more markers indicating more muscle damage
>people who train for strength have more testosterone, igf-1, GH, and lower cortisol than those who train high reps

you are basically telling this person to do cardio with weights.
