Current plans are to drop my body fat down to 12% before going on a different workout program to add muscle to my frame . . . I’m a bit of an old guy  to just be getting started in this, but as you can probably tell I’m dedicated even if I am not very knowledgable . . . any advice for an old dog trying to learn some new tricks?
