First off, I’ve had one physical issue after a other keep me outta the gym for quite some time, like 2.5 years mostly out.
So, my membership to a traditional gym, expensive, runs out in January. Because of cost, and because I’m fine with not having barbells available and dealing with their dumb asses for my own purposes, as I’ve done in the past, I’ll join a Planet Fn Fitness close by where I have quick there, easy in and out on Jan 1 (billing purposes, not a resolution).
The reason I’m getting back in on Jan 1 is not only for the monthly bill to come out on the 1st, but also coz my wife is taking Jan + Feb off…again, it’s not a Fn NY resolution thing. The place will be full of those butt clowns during hours I’ll not be there.
NOW OPINION/THOUGHTS TIME on wat I’m gonna do. And I’m gonna do it regardless of wat u say, I simply wanna hear wat u dudes think, if anything, on this approach.
Goal. 1st and foremost, is to drop body fat. I dont have enuf lean muscle to worry about losing so not a factor presently.
2nd, just slowly increase my strength back up to regular 50yo dude level.
I accomplish those 2 goals, I’ll evaluate a d consider maybe other goals then…
6 days, Mon-Sat, sometime between 0430-0600, when my eyes open, go do treadmill for as long as I can tolerate, beginner pace to start clearly, build over time
Mon-,Wed-Fri, Between 1030-1230, Full body, fairly light weights, mix of machines n dumbbells workout. Will get (assisted) dips and pullups in as first movements.
My Logic for this - Boot Camp, we rolled out, did PT then everything else. Everyone lost body fat regardless of how much they started with. PT began with a 1.5 mi run…then just pushups and situps. I can do the treadmill instead of running, and weights 3 times per week will way outdo the pushups & situps. Get off bodyfat, build some strength. That achieves my initial goals.
Always like to hear comments. Got any?
