So, my old man just turned 64 a couple of months ago,
in his past, my dad was a champion in handball and has coached many teams into beating championships, some of which were recent, say 8 years ago.
he was one of the strongest guys around, namely pressing a 150 pound dumbbell over head with no momentum.
However, he has spent most of the past 8 years working hard as a teacher and neglecting himself, at times he went out at 4:30 am and came back at 12am., almost 20 hours spent working, this has gone on for years. he also has type 2 diabetes.
Recently , say 3 years ago, he started losing alot of his muscle and adding fat.
now he wants to get back in the game and go back to weight lifting.
my question is as follows.
what routine, exercises etc would you reccomend for him? I was thinking of introducing him to hte stronglifts 5x5 program, but am not sure whats good for him at his age. please please share whatever knowledge you have,
also, what do you guys recommend for nutrition and supplements?
I was thinking of getting him on hormone boosting products such as ZMA and some growth hormone increasers, please if anyone has experience on this, i would be very thankful.
thanks in advance.
