First off, I’m definitely not over 35. However, my padre is considering taking up weightlifting. He’s never tried it before, but he runs and bikes competitively, and is in pretty good shape…other than the small spare tire.
So I’d like to know:
What are some of the most common things that old guys need to look out for when beginning weight training? (besides crappy form and all that young-blood stuff)
Is there a best program for 40+ guys just starting out, or are the guidelines pretty much the same as for younger athletes?
I’d like to give my dad the best advice I can, and hopefully not injure him in the process. Thanks for helpin out.
