Hey guys, i need some help for a program for my dad, was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for a good t-article for him. Heres some background:
Hes i his early 40’s and 5’8 and about 215, hes got a good beer gut, and this is the goal, to lose it. Anyways, hes a beginner in the fact that he hasnt worked out seriously for a long long long time, however in his highschool/college days he used to train like a madman and was a college/scholarship football player, if that means anything for him now i dont know. Needless to say hes decided to join a gym in hopes of losing the beer gut. He doesnt want to work out with me, probably due to humility or something,; but he asked me for help. So ive already told him that id recommend mostly compound movements, although he hates them, mostly due to their degree of difficulty, and prefers isolation excercises, but i think i have him convinced on the compound movements (squat, bench, military, etc.)
Also i recommended a 4x6 type scheme so he had an idea of what to expect. Anyways he seems to be ok with it all, however i figured instead of my designing him a program, id see what articles may be better suited for him. So im open to any and all suggestions, and in a few weeks ill most likely repost for a diet plan. Thanks in advance guys.
