GOAL: to lose fat but maintain my bodyweight but redistribute fat to lean bodyweight ratio.
I'm a male (5'10" at 200lbs) turning 50 this summer. i hv been working out w/weights since i was 16.
i've suffered from some shoulder tendinitis (not a full blown rotator cuff injury). just a healed lesion now-- but i still hv to b careful.
i take inject 75ml's of Testosterone-E per week for HRT and to help me with a mood disorder.
i stopped exercising 'cause i hated my gym.
i've been eating terribly for a while now. i'm prone to binge at night.
i found a new gym and will resume training-- but it's been a while and i'm not sure how to proceed: i'd appreciate informed advice.
i want to work out every other day.
i want to do cardio every other day after my workout: a combination of HIT and regular depending on how i feel. 20-30min's per session. (i'll need to build back up to HIT).
i think i just want to stick to machines using circuit training for the time being: the whole body, 3 circuits 3 x week.
i don't want to count calories or weigh food.
i try to eat every 3-4 hours: high protein with a complex carb and good fat. lots of water. no beef or pork. i am considering going back to vegetarianism.
i use a (natural = Stevia) whey protein and supplement with vitamins, creatine and glutamine.
is training the body 3xper week on a circuit of 3 sets per machine too much?
how many rounds should i do of the circuit and how many sets and reps?
i was thinking 3 rounds per circuit and 3 sets per exercise (after a few sets of warm up on the first round of the circuit).
oh, btw, i've been getting some really strange replies. it's one reason i haven't used this site in years.
