Any tips for a newbie? Don't be afraid to modify/scale movements. Just because you can't do it at that particular moment doesn't mean that you will never be able to. After having Maks I thought I would never be able to squat or do sit-ups again. I am back to full range movements after having to modify/scale for a long time. Keep working towards your goals & you will accomplish them!
