Once upon a time, I had no children and plenty of time and money to hire a personal trainer to work out with me and to tell me what to do every time I went to the gym. Ten years and five kids later, time and money are more limited in supply for me. Still I miss the way I used to feel, so it's back to the gym for me. This time, however, I have to develop my own workout and actually do all the thinking and planning myself. I've thoroughly read up on HST. It looks like it would fit the bill for me, but I find it confusing to figure out just exactly what exercises I ought to do. Too many possibilities. Any advice that those of you who are further down the road than me can offer would be helpful. Here are my particulars: I'm 45 yrs old, 6'2", 150lbs, and nowhere near as strong as I used to be. Sadly, I can't do more than about 5-8 unassisted pullups/chin-ups/dips/pushups with proper form at this point. I can fit in three gym workouts per week at about an hour per workout. The gym I use has plenty of equipment of all types, but I don't have anyone on tap to spot me at this point, so I need (at least initially) to do exercises that wouldn't absolutely require one. Any suggestions for a three-day-per-week set of exercises that might be best for me to get started with? If chin-ups/pull-ups/dips/etc are part of your suggestion, please explain how it will fit into an HST routine when I cannot get anywhere near a 15RM or a 10RM with my body weight alone (much less with added weights). Thanks!
