As many of you long time members know,I was SANCHIN31. That was my user name before and during my bout with cancer. I was a member here for about 8months when I was diagnosed.
Before the fight I was 195lbs,but dropped to 155lbs during the chemotherapy months and I had ALOT of it. My sessions were 4.5-5hrs a day,5 days a week,every three weeks. The main drug I took was cisplatin,it's a nasty drug. They gave me enough to push me seemingly to the brink of death,then as soon as I felt a little normal it was time for another round.
Well,I finished chemo back in October,then I had the flu and several other infections due to having a low immune system. For the last couple of months I have felt pretty good and my workout has returned to almost normal.
Here it is:
I do these excercises variably with my karate training and I still work on basics,kata,bagwork,and sparring.
Crunches
Supine bicycle
Scissor kicks - I do these for abs

Pushups-regular, wide arm, and close hands
Overhead dumbell pressups
Butterflys with dumbells
curls
tricep raises -I do all of these for upper body.

Hindu squats
Calf raises
Squats with dumbells -I do these for lower body

Burpees
Front-back-go's (pushup-situp-run in place,repeated quickly)
Jogging/sprints - I do these for cardio

Eventually my routine will change to more weight training,but for now I guess it's ok? The dumbells I use are a pair of 25lbs.

I weighed myself tonight and I weighed 189lbs!! That's quite an improvement. I'm also taking whey protein and creatine (ketoglutomate). (I know,but I bought the stuff,so I'm going to use it,lol!)

I'd like to keep track of my progress here. Feel free to chime in with any advice(or criticism). By the way,I'm 32yrs old and 6'2".

Welcome back to the land of the active my friend! glad that your weight is getting back up there.
The programe looks fine- basic calisthenics, nothing OTT. I would recommend doing some pullups to balance out the 2 pushing movements you have (push up, and shoulder press).

Also, as something to aim for, lok to combine your burpees, front to backs and HI running, into the following.

Burpee down to press up position, press up, roll over, sit up, roll back, tuck in (continuing burpee), plyo verticle jump, straight to 25m sprint. Repeat at other end, but 25m jog return.
Aim for 5 returns (10 in total)done with no recovery other than the jog, and build from there.

Call it a 'welcome back present'

That sounds awesome,I'll do it!!

As far as pullups go,I really don't have anything to pull up on.? I'll have to think on that one.

If you have no pull up available, then shift all the weight onto 1 dumbell, making it around 50lbs. get a bench, or a couple of sturdy chairs placed seat to seat. Now put one knee and the matching hand down on the 'bench' so that you have one leg on the floor and the rest of you bent so the body is parallel to the floor. With your free hand hold the heavy dumbell (let it hang straight down). Now pull it up to your lower rib cage, drawing your elbow tight past the torso and squeexing the shoulder blades, slowly return do the start position and repeat for reps. Now switch supporting stance and do even reps with the other arm. This is called 'one arm dumbell row' and is a good movement for the back.

I stil can't get over the fact that you've made almost 1000 posts in just over 2 months... You must have damn strong forearms at the very least Nice plan anyway, and I'm glad to see Cord offer something suitably masochistic
