Recently had a TBI and want to know if short lifting workouts are effective.

So recently (almost a year ago) I had a pretty severe concussion, and as a result when I do intense workouts, especially heavy lifting, I get a headache for hours and don’t fell well the next couple days. How effective would doing short, 5 minute spurts of lifting, maybe 5-8 times throughout the day be? They would be fairly intense, not 100% though because that would be too taxing on my head. I’m hoping they would allow me to continue to build some muscle without putting too much stress on my head. Thanks! Also, doing cardio is not a problem for me, as I can play competitive basketball games without any real negative side effects. It’s just intense workouts and heavy lifting that I have issues with.
