Hey, all… I have a friend who wants to start a good routine. Before you all shout out “Rippetoe’s” let me say this: he is almost 60 years old, and has had surgery on his back (a fusion, I think?). He doesn’t feel comfortable with weights, and being a former Marine (oorah), has expressed interest in a bodyweight-only program.
Right now, he has started by modifying his diet (I’m working with him on this to the best of my abilities), and is also taking a walk for 45-60 minutes every day.
Personally, I’m at a loss as to a good program to get him on. I’ve thought about simple push-ups, pull-ups, dips, and sit-ups, but I’m sure there are probably more effective routines already established.
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
