I just started working out with my brother in law who is 260 pounds and has high body fat %. He has not worked out in years. On Sunday we did chest and bi’s and he is really sore today(Tuesday) and could not work out. He has a sore right knee which he thinks he will not be able to squat and do deads. My question is how do I convince him to do these important movements to build up strength is his legs. Will the additional strength help reduce the soreness in his knee?? BTW I am not really sure what is wrong with his knee, all I know is that he is worried about doing these movements.
Aside from deads and squats is there any other movements he could do to build up the strength first to help him do deads and squata or should he just dive right into these movements with light weight and high reps???
BTW I also have some soreness in my right knee and my elbow but I just suck it up and work through it, as my goal is to lose BF and gain strength and I figure that the soreness in my knee with decrease as my BF and weight decrease. Am I wrong in that assumption.
Thanks in advance. Boom #80
