Recovery Exercise Options
46 year old male very active and fit all my life and had arrythmia since I was young with no noticeable issues until the last few years, now after a junctional block forever grateful to the medical professionals and technology giving me back my lifestyle with a PM 2 weeks ago.
For rehab (since 2nd day after surgery) I have been doing a mixture of hill/step walking, assault bike (just legs) and lower bodyweight workouts (squats/lunges etc) trying to minimise any upper body movement while I heal from surgery. My doctor has advised no swimming/surfing till after my 4 week check up, weights week 6 and running when I feel my body is ready. Based on what I have read in this forum best to leave running till after 3 weeks - all good.
What I couldnt find and would like to know from anyone's experience is what upper bodyweight exercises and/or stretching you did safely in weeks 3-6?
Any insights would be appreciated just wanting to build back up to 'normal' without being detrimental to the healing process. Thanks.

Yesterday I moved to a new place in my mind and realized how bad I felt 'before' and the difference my pacemaker has made.
