I used to workout everyday back in the 80's. I've had a lot of health issues in the past 12 years. My body refuses to give up. I'm 6'0" and weigh about 380. I was up to 500 #'s. When I worked out, I weighed 225, with less than 10% body fat.
I haven’t lifted a weight since 1987. I haven’t ran or done any exercises since about 1990. I walk, a little.
I was looking up some old friends on the web, and found that my old weight instructor, Chuck Sipes, had died. I did some asking around and got some answers to my questions and also made a couple of new friends. (Dennis Weis and Paul Becker). After making contact with them, I got this desire to work iron again.
I’ve been told by doctors, that I wasn’t going to live another 5 years. That was 10 years ago.
My blood pressure is in the middle of the “normal” range, without any meds. My hearts rate is about 60 bpm, at rest. My doctor did a circulation test of my veins and arteries, and I’m in perfect shape on that.
My cholesterol was 280, then I got Lipitor and my cholesterol dropped to 130. I had a tumor next to my heart about the size of a baseball and I did 3 biopsies and the chemo and radiation and so far I’m cancer free.
Today is my third day of my workouts and I’m feeling it in my arms. I’m doing the “Push-Pull” routines that Chuck Sipe taught me.
My question is, should I do the workouts before or after meals? If after, then how long after?
