After about 10 years away from the gym it’s desperately time to get back in the swing of things.
Formerly in my college years I played a couple of years of Football, but since then I haven’t actively worked out.
My job out of college for first 8 years was a physically intense laboring job, so really, I didn’t miss the working out part because everyday was like going to the gym.
However, about 3 years ago now I left that job and for the last 2 years Ive been doing strictly office work.
Due to the sedentary lifestyle along with a few other health issues my body has drastically deteriorated over the last few years and at this point I feel like I’m in desperate need of a positive change. I’ve lost a lot of weight (about 25 pounds) and most, if not all of that was muscle. (I’ve never been “fat”) And, not only have I lost a large amount of muscle, but my posture and mobility have gone south as well.
In my younger years I had postural/mobility and symmetry issues and I was introduced to the works of people like Eric Cressey.
I think the best thing would be to start a program along the lines of a Neanderthal No More, or Maximum Strength by Cressey. However, I know I’ve seen him on this website at one point make comments on how he wouldn’t even recommend NNM to someone because it’s outdated, and similar answer to the MS program…and at one point I believe he was working on a new program but hasn’t come out with one yet.
What I’m hoping for in starting this thread, is some advice and direction in finding a program that is right for me. I don’t think it’s wise to go into the gym and start throwing weight around just for the sake of getting stronger/bigger if my mobility and posture are shit. Basically I’m looking for new versions of the ones mentioned above.
I’m looking to systematically change my body from the top down, or inside out however you want to look at it. But the major point is I’m looking to transform my body into what an able bodied man should be, not some office jockey/couch potato that it is now.
Thanks in advance for any and all information.
