Here is the situation. A relative of mine recently found out that he has a serious cholestrol problem. He was about 25 pounds overweight a few months ago. He started walking/jogging again and thatÂ´s the only sport heÂ´s ever done and he actually enjoys it. I helped him with the nutrion (basicly more protein, healthy fats, less carbs other than veggies, berrys, fruits).
HeÂ´s lost about 25 pounds since, most from the belly and some from the whatever little muscle he had. Cholestrol is better too. I finally convinced him to go to gym with me next week and he was thinking of adding one gym session a week to his schedule. I said great, itÂ´s way better than no gym at all, letÂ´s do it.
IÂ´d really appreciate your help to set up the “program” guys.
-50 years old
-jogging only sport ever done
-No belly anymore
-Posture is quite good, no major problems
-Goal is to help him save/gain some muscle to keep his metabolism going.
We would start the session with some “Magnificient Mobility” movements. I was thinking of building the “program” around squats/lunges, Rows/chins and DB bench presses, around 12-15 total sets, 10-15 rep range at first. Maybe throw some wall slides/other shoulder stability movement after that and thatÂ´s it.
Any ideas, random thoughts etc are very much appreciated!!!
