Managment consultant. Focus on yoga, swimming (beginner, TI) and general training.

Training background:

  • 1986-2000. Tried various martial arts, fencing, weightlifting, played in lower divisions of basketball. Constant problems with knees and back.
  • 2000-2007. Sporadic training due to becoming the father of twins, weightlifting, running, was only consistent with two years of Jodo. BMI peaked at 27 in 2002

Your answer is a bit on the general side. Perhaps you can be more specific on the types of exercises and what to eat. Also, references is better, that is, your answer will get more votes. Good luck!

good point! However, given that you have limited time, you could go for a "whole body" approach, e.g. with kettlebell type exercises (see fitness.stackexchange.com/q/2001/3778) that work the posterior chain. Working on relatively small muscles such as the biceps is in a limited time context less efficient.

Do you really need to use weight? Perhaps a body weight program would be better given your time constraints.

comment During muscle loss, are muscle fibers destroyed or do they just shrink?
Adding some links to back up the answer would be great. Also, the answer is a bit too open. You state that you will lose.. and then add that you can build.. The answer is missing what is different when you age.
