So my pops is turning sixty tomorrow, and my mom is almost sixty as well. They are both overweight... My dad has diabetes and my mom has a weaker heart. My sister is a chubbster as well...but I have her doing the "New Rules of Lifting for Women" book. Picture of the family including me about a year ago. That being said I really really want my parents to get slim and healthy. I don't want them to die early...I love these guys. So I was thinking for my mom: A three days a week light cardio. 30 minutes a day and then the swimming pool for 30 minutes after. I think that, coupled with a change in diet will help her alot. My father is the main reason for this thread... He wants to lift weights... but he has a tear in his left bicep tendon thing..so he can't go heavy or anything... I was thinking of starting him on a super light lifting routine. What do you guys think of this for my pops: Monday- Chest/Tris Tuesday- Legs/Abs/light cardio 30 minutes Wednesday- off Thursday- Back/Bis/light cardio 30 minutes Friday- Shoulders/Tris/Abs Sat/Sunday- light cardio 30 minutes Please let me know any info you guys could give me. Please. I searched online for info but just found some Men's Healthy routine which was basically something that I don't think my pops could do. If you guys have any books you could point me towards...that would be much appreciated as well.. Cliffs: parents are overweight, need help on finding a good routine for them. they are old.
