Ok guys, I know this question has probably been asked a million times, but I know nothing on the subject.
My dad recently asked me to design a training program and diet for him. If it were one of my friends, no problem. But my dad is 53 and has never lifted a weight before. He is 6’8" and overweight, which adds more concern for me when designing a program.
His main focus is to lose weight, of course. I would normally never hesitate to include the big exercises - squat, deadlift, bench - in a program; in fact I would design programs around those lifts, but I am very concerned about them being dangerous for him.
Does anyone know of any links for programs specially geared towards people like him??? I would feel much more comfortable finding a template laid out by a professional!
Thanks in advance for any advice!
