I use to work out regularly for years, I stopped for one year. I have put on weight and want to loose and chisle up. ie GQ 40 look.  I would also have to say I am a sore mother fkr waking up in mornings,joints, my feet, lower back garbage.  I played sports all my kid/teen life, construction,electrician i spend hrs on ladders and my feet. I am sick of being sore and ache. I have high cholesteral not extreamely but enough to be on pills, I want that garbage to go bye bye. So I would greatly appreciate some sound advice and workouts

thanks bros

high intensity low rest, low resistance....lets do this big boy

- jog/run .50 miles or .8km, incline at 1.0, speed at your own pace.
(30 seconds rest max)
- 50 push ups. doesn't matter how long it takes you or if you have to do girl pushups....just do 50 with minimal rest
(30 seconds rest max)
- 25 chin up or pull ups on your own or assisted, just get 25 in
(30 seconds rest max)
- 25 ab roll out or any type of pushups or plank for 1 minute straight
(rest as much as you need)

get back to step one and repeat. do all exercises 4 times in total. you'll see progression when you cut your rest time/girl pushups/assisted chin ups

good luck!

"25 ab roll out or any type of pushups or plank for 1 minute straight"

situps.

remember, if your doing a situp where you are laying on the ground and your knees are bent, you only need to lift your back 4-5 inches off the ground. anything farther than that you are straining your back and does little for the abdominal muscle.

2-3 times a week. i would recommend getting comfortable with the exercises and know when your body fatigues. if you play sports on the side maybe do this routine twice a week.

you need to change your diet right off. First of all , you are chronically dehydrated. Number 1 symptom of this is sore joints. You can workout until the cows come home but this is not the cure. Until you change your lifestyle diet wise, these problems will only get worse

I have worked in alternative health centers most of my life where people would come and stay for months. Most got well. Exercise and workouts are great but the problem is much more on a cellular level.

Walk every day first thing. Don't take on too much too soon or you will discourage yourself. I'd walk each day for two weeks or more before starting anything to wild. Once you are feeling less aches and pains amp it up. Squats/lunges and sit-up, push-ups, burn out reps. Get rid of bad garbage in your diet, never drink soda of any type, no chips and garbage calories. Def do not bite off more than you can chew to start.

You should not ever be sore - ever. Rookies and longterm idiots get sore. You are not a rookie.

Glad you are doing well with the exercise and diet, keep up the good work. Are you still on statins? If so then you should really get off them, they are bad for you in every way.  Total cholesterol is a meaningless number, people with higher total cholesterol get less heart attacks than people with lower total cholesterol.  You need to get a Vertical Auto Profile (VAP) test in order to determine whether your LDL particles are of the large and fluffy variety,  or small and dense variety. If they are of the large and fluffy variety then you have no reason to worry about a higher total cholesterol number.  If HDL is higher than 40 and Triglycerides are less than 150, the particles on the LDL are likely the large and fluffy variety so even if the number is high the person is healthy. See if you can get a copy of your lipid report and check the numbers.  The VAP test costs money but I think its well worth it.

Good Job tasco!  I gave up smoking the start of the new year and wanted to get back in shape.  Went from 206 to 189 in a few months.  Lift at least 4 times a week, run and do other cardio.  Feel great, just had to get myself motivated.  Keep it up bud!
