I need some suggestions from some of the thinkers on this board...
I've been an avid follower of fitness/training news and a lurker on this board for years now. I've finally decided to get off my butt and get in gear.
I've already made drastic changes to my diet and can tell a noticeable difference to my energy and mental clarity! I've also researched many of the training programs out there.
BUT, for someone like me (weak, unconditioned, horrible cardiovascular shape) I feel that it wouldn't be the most productive thing to do to jump into a resistance training program. I think that it makes logical sense that I should get "in-shape" first and that the best way to do that would be a simple workout, such as with push-ups, bodyweight squats, and light free weights, and a cardio program. Maybe do this for a month before I start hitting the weights.
What do you guys think? If I do go this route, should I do the simple total body routine every day, every other day, a couple times a week? And just do as much cardio as I can until I'm at an acceptable level?
ANY thoughts would be appreciated.
