Quickest way to improve conditioning...

Hey guys.

As you know, I done my knee in etc so have been very inactive. I'm still not able to train in MT or JJ. But I managed to fleece the doctor for a free gym pass! So I can try and build my hamstrings up to take to weight off my Anterior Cruciate Ligment.

But what I want to know is what's the quickest way to build up my conditioning. I get knackered going up the stairs nowadays. I gotta us machines that don't do my knee in. I been using that crosstrainer thing at the gym.

What's the best way?

Should you really be trying to rush it? Surely it'd be better to take it slow?

The best way to rehab your knee is to use it.
if you want to exercise your upper body without effecting your knee try strand/cable pulling and pull ups

if you can use the cross trainer comfortably, then you could try doing half your sessions of say 45mins straight at a decent pace.

then your other sessions do say 5x5mins with a min rest(like a fight) at a fast pace.
