    Over 50 - Can someone recommend a comprehensive guide?

    I am new here, over 50, looking for a comprehensive guide that includes optimized meals, exercises, tips, restrictions etc, for someone my age who is looking to get into body building. I know I am behind the curve here in my starting age, but I am serious about getting into competing as my second life since retirement. Hey we all have to have goals right!?

    Thanks in advance!
    -Steve

    Read the sticky threads at the top of the Workout Program and Nutrition forums. That's probably the best "guide" you're going to find.

    If that's too much information and overloads you, then just start with this: https://igoodies.000webhostapp.com/?viagra=showt...hp?t=159678631

    And this: https://igoodies.000webhostapp.com/?viagra=showt...hp?t=173439001
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Pretty much everything you need is in the workout program and nutrition stickies, no really go read them. If you still have questions after that then ask here, lot's of friendly people to help out.

    The best starter book I read when I first started out was Body for Life by Bill Phillips. It gives you an idea of how things work. Don't do it forever though, you will get tired of it. After 3-5 months move on to something more advanced or different so you don't get bored.

    Wow - that's a blast from the past. I read that book, too, and followed it strictly. I got pretty lean doing it, but the diet was pretty strict and really hard to stick to. Loved the book and program back in the day, though. Like you said, 12 - 16 weeks and I was ready to do something else.

    Yes! i dropped from 242 to 174 lbs following Body for Life strictly! and that was with the free day each week. It was a bit brutal following it but it taught me about how to eat and how to exercise and I learned to go to the gym on an empty stomach early in the morning so that there is no excuse in the afternoon to skip a workout. Great motivational stuff too so yea it's an awesome book for beginners!

    Then I moved on to Tom Venuto - Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle, then I moved on to Lee Hayward's forum back in the day where I learned new routines and exercises, then I moved to DC training which was rest-pause and tough but I made my biggest gains using rest-pause.
