So I'm going to have ~2 weeks of downtime after my surgery (Having chest tissue removed, nothing to worry about). I won't be able to lift anything heavy, but I'm fine for lower body. I won't be doing anything involving my arms at the risk of causing damage. Would anyone have an idea of a routine that would work for this? I was thinking of incorporating leg presses and curls, back raises, but not sure what else. Any advice is great; thanks in advance.

Take the two weeks, stay out of the gym and get well. Good Luck with your surgery.

Ahh no I don't have access to most powerlifting equipment. I really am going to try and avoid all upper body movement in the gym. Just didn't know if there was a routine someone knew of for lower.

@xPerfidy considering you would have to move the weights about to put on the bar you could cancel lower body out as well unless you plan on using machines, I'd just take the two weeks off and eat at maintenance or slightly above
