Sup y'all. So at the behest of my brother (he needs a workout partner), I've started exercising again. Back when I was into lifting, it was all about pushing iron. No cardio, man-pilates, or anything like that was on the schedule. My brother does core, balance, and a little weight work. There's some bike & treadmill warmup & cooldown. So I guess what I am asking for is some advice/feeedback on this sort of program, so I can help my brother & I maximize our efforts. • I've already cut out soda, sweet tea, desserts, and most refined sugar. I enjoy fish and several veggies, so I can make some adjustments to my diet. Do I need to go heavy with protein? Are there any trustworthy diet plans online? Do I need to limit carbs or not? • I'm starting with three days a week to ease back into things. Should this eventually turn into a 5 or 7 day thing? I could exercise every day, but due to my schedule I could not make it happen at the same time every day. Does that matter? • I am not obese, and I haven't had any major injuries in the past few years, I'm just out of shape! I don't need to be broly, but I'd like a little size with more flexibility and cut this time around. Should I alternate weight days with the core training days, or blend both into the same day? Let me know what other information I need to provide and I'll fill in the gaps as best as I can. Thanks in advance for your time.
