Hi all, looking for a simple way to start. I am 55 and in ok shape, meaning I can hike up and down the mountains here all day and have the 35 crowd tired before me. Always been active, boating, hiking, horseback, ranching life, etc.in general, everyone always said I was naturally strong, good genes, etc.
Currently, NO gym routine at all, just walking hiking and staying away from Junk food as much as I can.
Currently 6 ft 205 lbs. 15 years ago was REAL bad, 320 lbs, but got divorced and lost all of 125 lbs, just stopped binging all day on junk and carbs ( addicted to sweets ) and got back to hiking.
Work on a computer / phone all day in my condo/home office, so zero commute.
Have a basic "condo" gym in my building, with some weight machines.
I've decided to hit the weights and try to turn back the clock, I have seen others do it that are 10-15 years older then me, so know it can be done.
My problem is, I have no clue of what a REAL plan is for someone that is not in bad shape, but IS 55 and starting from scratch. I would be very happy with something that was designed by/for over 50's, with a very specific 6 day plan, what machines / what areas, how many reps, if that exists.
Is there a good way to go set a baseline, even if its embarrassing. Like what is my maximum weight for arms, legs, back, etc. What exersize to use to see the maximum safely for each body area? At least so I have a starting point
Never have taken a supplement or steroid of any kind.
Considering Doctor specified Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) HGH , Testosterone , and Estradiol there are two clinics here that do that with the under the skin pellets
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
