Help needed

hello
I am a newbie and i wish to start lifting weights although i do have some questions to ask and i would be grateful for any assistance. This may seem a bit weired to start with but i have to ask. so here goes
1 i want to train but have a neck injury which is a prolapsed disk this was done through catching 1 tonne of weight, long story! therefore i need to know what not to do so as not to aggrivate it and make it worse. i have tried training a few moths back but i somhow made it worse for a while.
so if anyone can help with my predicament i would appeciate it.
2. i have an extremly fast metabalism and the only way i can gain weight is as muscle so diet is also important any tips?[B)]

    1. you will have to consult your doctor/physio on how much activity you can actually do around your neck.

    2. to build muscle you need a calorie surplus. basically eat eat eat. 6 small meals a day. your looking at 1/1.5grams of protein for every lb of bodyweight you have. try and keep your diet as clean as possible. train 3-4 times a weeek max. you should be doing low reps(6-8) with the heaviest weight you can manage 6-8 reps with. for about 3-4 sets. take a look at cashmans beginner routine for more info.

    thanks for a quick reply
    I have asked the doctor but all he says is dont over do it and dont lift weight above my head to minimize the load on my neck, i was doing 45kgs but that seemed to cause problems. and i believe that was on the chest press. I really need to know what muscle groups to leave alone and which ones will add support to the neck?

    thanks
