    Default Strong Medicine Basics and chronic fatigue question

    Hi
    i have the book Strong Medicine and hoping to get some suggestions. I want to get started with the Basic Cardio, however it seems so very too easy even for me with chronic fatigue.. for example the first week is 3 session a week at 8 mins each at 55% max HR. at this point I can't do alot of cardio, i get really set back. but i average 4x a week walking about 1/2 mile 3x a day at least. not sure where or how to add in the beginning cardio .. open to ideas? i definitely need to go slow so i dont set myself up for a "crash"

    also should i try to implement the weight training segment first? i had been able to do resistance training for many years lightly without making the CFS worse, however i over lifted and messed up my neck 2 years ago.. been getting help with this and it's getting better..so if i do weights i surely need to start light so I dont get the pulling and pain on the right side neck.

    looking forward to some suggestions..and if anyone has CFS would love to hear how you manage this program.

    I am excited too for get on board with the food plan in this book. I really need it.
    thank you

    I have a question for you. You repeatedly say you have CFS and need to go slow so you don't crash. Why not try the cardio program from the beginning, since you already know it's a level that you can handle today?
