I have a 59 year old friend who wants to start lifting.
This past week we tested his lifting max for each major lift and dropped them to 80%. His numbers are:
Dead Lift 165
He osteoarthritis and has mobility issues in his knees, shoulders, and lower back and had trouble with De’Francos Agile 8. and has trouble jumping and throwing. He does walk 30 to 45 minutes a day and weighs 175 pounds. His goal is overall strength, mobility, and conditioning which is why I suggested 5/3/1 over Starting Strength.
My question is which program to start him with? I thought Triumvirate or 2 day a week, but not sure he can handle the volume. Also would you suggest 5 Pros instead of the original 5/3/1 AMRAP?
Also, what would you suggest for jumps, throws, and mobility?
