I know there is a lot of experience and knowledge here.
I would like to start off running in the right direction.
We are all at a different point and I will list mine.
My question is for gentlemen who have already been through my stage or have knowledge of it.
I’m 51, obese, perfectly healthy according to all tests including cholesterol and BP.
I have no injuries now as both tennis elbows have healed.
Positives are I have great legs with well developed calves, a very healthy and strong back.
I am not weak at all.
I do T injections prescribed by my doctor so you likely know about the Libido thing and hardly have any soreness after any strenuous exercise or activity.
What I think I know.
- Power lifting is over for me at my age.
- I have to get my body fat in check.
- I put on muscle fast and have a great base except for all the fat.
- I’m pretty sure that 75% of my excess fat was caused by eating excess BBQ.
I am very fat but most people don’t believe I’m that heavy.
At 292, I am the heaviest I have ever been.
5’ 7 and you would think I would be completely round but surprisingly I am not.
My objective is to train for maximum fat loss so I can eat all the BBQ and Cheesesteaks I want.
I plan to train 5 days a week and take the weekends off to eat, relax, and spend time with my wife.
No time for fishing now.
I seriously want to train for the next year.
I have a tendency to be of one mind and over do the training for faster results.
I would like to think I am smarter now.
I am thinking a beginners type workout for 3 months.
Something much harder 4-6 months.
Then a killer workout 6-9 followed by some variation for shock factor beyond that every 3 months.
I don’t know what is best or even what I should do for fat loss other than add muscle to burn calories and excess fat.
I feel like if I can get a solid plan together then execute it flawlessly, in 3 months I will have results and 6 months I will have reached my fat loss goal.
I appreciate any help of advice.
