For the next 6 months or so I can't lift upper body as I'm recovering from labrum repair surgery. I can't squat (bar goes on back, I would assume is not good) or deadlift (pulls on shoulder), but I should be able to leg sled (don't worry, I'll ask my doctor to clarify on Monday). Usually I lift Monday and Thursday upper body and tuesday and Friday lower, and do Abs all those days. That means simply eradicating upper would result in only two days, and I want to lift 3 or 4 days a week (preferably 4: I need to get huge). But how do I space a solely lower body workout into 3/4 days? What lifts should I do for some diversity? It seems like I'd run out of lifts or have pathetically short sessions. Should I just do the same workout every day a few times a week? And should I do 4 days of lower body, or would that not give me enough time to rest?
EDIT: I'm going to get physical therapy from a professional, and yes I'll ask my surgeon and the pt what lower body lifts I can and can't do, but for now I'm pretty sure I can't squat or clean or deadlift. I'm asking what are some more, less common lifts I can do to keep my workouts long enough and how should I divide them up and into how many days. (Nothing overhead and nothing that rests on shoulder and nothing that requires me to hold with arm, but perhaps only with one arm would be acceptable. Again, I'll talk with doc what I can and can't do )
EDIT: the labrum in context is the one in my right shoulder
