I have Tourette syndrome, which although may be hilarious to some, is actually really annoying. Basically I tic all day and exercise of any sort makes my tics worse. I am physically capable of doing heaps of exercise and used to do lots when I was younger before it got bad, but now my tics get so unbareable during intense workout that I have to stop sometimes.
I have been working out for a month so far trying to lose 40 - 50 pounds. I am eating 300 cal 6 times a day & lifting 3 times a week (full body all compound exersises) and walking about 3km on my days off. I have lost 13 pounds so far which is good.
What I want to know is, after I lose the weight and build some muscle, would I be ok to just lift twice a week to maintain the muscle I will gain. This would make a big difference to my life as sometimes my Tourettes is worse for a day or two after training, so the less the better.
I will continue to lift 3 times a week for about 6 months or until I have lost the weight but after that would be good to go to 2 days a week is possible. I will also continue to walk every day.
Any advice would be great.
