Hey gang, first off I absolutely love the new look of the site - perhaps that tells you how long it’s been since I’ve checked out T-Nation.
Anyway, I’m finally at a point to start a working out seriously again and wondering where to begin. There are so many workouts and advice columns, it’s hard to figure out where the best place to start is for my situation.
So, I’m a former wrestler and judo player (all through HS & college), and had a desk job for the past five years during which I tended to neglect much physical training. I ended up going back to school and am a medical student now, with a much more flexible schedule. The bad news? I’ve gained over seventy :^( pounds over the past five years and feel (and look) like a complete slug! So where to start?!?
Any advice would be MOST appreciated. I figure it will take a few weeks to ease my body back into training, and for some of you that perhaps neglected training for a few years, please let me know how you got back into it - pitfalls to avoid, things to do, etc etc. My wife is very willing to help prepare and pack meals for me, which is going to be a big help.
Thanks in advance!
