One of the older blokes at work has asked me for help. He has put on a lot of weight since having his acl reconstructed about 12 months ago. He is due to deploy overseas in about 4 months and wants to lose about 15kg (35lbs, give or take)
Given his lack of fitness, I've told him to start walking his dogs for about 60min each night this week, just to get him moving.
I've also instructed him to remove all sugar from his diet. Just two basic things that will get him started, and he should see a drop in weight at the end of the week.
He wants to get into the gym soon, but I'm not too sure how to approach it. He's not into crossfit, or training heavy. I was thinking cardio based, with a fair amount of rowing and simple bodyweight exercises.
What do you guys suggest? He isn't too confident with his knee to be squatting or moving large amounts of weight around, and I don't think he will pay much attention to me showing him how to squat properly.
