Yes, I have a close family member who is basically in the worst shape someone his age could be in. Not super fat, but heavy, skinny fat , no muscle. Eats crap, drinks smokes cigarettes.
One of his friends gave him a home gym, a nice one actually and I keep trying to get him to use it. Every time we go over, its got clothes hanging on it, or is being used for storage. So I slowly started taking plates. “Hey you gonna use these 35’s?” “well, yea eventually, I probably cant start with that weight, so go ahead” “Oh so you definitely wont need these 45ers then”
