I’m 49 this year and am getting back into training. In my 20s I was 180lbs
, my 30s depending on training I was between 220-240lbs.
, I topped out at 370lbs and am now down to 330lbs and 6 feet tall. It was like wow how did that happen.
I made it a point to consult with my doctor and got the green light.
25 min of heavy bag.
10 min of speed bag,
45 min of treadmill, sometimes an elliptical.
Lifting barbells/dumbbells, power cage.
I have been better able to get around ever since I started, I have injuries from a car accident in ‘93. Ankle, knees, back, and rotator cuff injuries from 20 years at UPS, 7 as a route delivery driver so I can relate. It was pretty rough in the beginning, and now it’s much better.
It’s a good feeling to know I’m making progress, my motivation was my grandkids I want to be able to see them grow up and be able to keep up with them. Another motivation was after working on some upgrades on the cars it was rough crawling around and jumping up then crawling under the car again.
It got me thinking, being on my feet is one thing and handling it, but if I got into it and it was all ground work I might be in trouble.
I won’t be back down to 240lbs just want to follow my doctors advice and she’s good with my goal of 270lbs. All test coming back in line so steady and consistency are my game plans.
