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

Training background:

  • Childhood: playground soccer, ice hockey, cross country skiing, swimming
  • 1973-1986 Basketball. Played in the Swedish junior national team and in the Swedish level 1 series (Brahe, IFK Linköping). Coached kids team, camp leader.
  • 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
  • 2007- . Mix of "everyday active" (bike to work, take the stairs instead of elevator,...), yoga, weightlifting (squats, deadlift, military press), functional training (e.g. MAQ, burpees) and swimming. Feels great.

Good advice but do you have any support for this other than your own experience?

comment Resume training for a marathon after forced break, one month left, recommend a plan
Given the risk of getting caught in the race & shutting down pain signals from your body -> worse injuries, I would skip the race.

How are you doing the push-up? E.g. elbows out or elbows close to the body?

comment I am underweight. How do I gain weight and muscle?
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!

comment circuit weight training and total weight used
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.

comment circuit weight training and total weight used
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.

comment Eating before workout
Working out for 90+120 minutes and not filling up with water and energy seems a bit on the destructive side

The answer is a bit on the short side. Also, it seems like the progress has stalled

comment Should I reboot Starting Strength program, to get better results?
Perhaps you can add some detail on your overall goals, e.g. if this is for the purpose of general well-being, there shouldn't be any time pressure. On the other hand, if you have a specific goal in time, it is a different matter.

See this question fitness.stackexchange.com/a/7127/3778 for the BMI of world class female swimmers. If you put together a similar table for the best triathletes, I will put it in a similar diagram as an answer.

comment Is 5 to 6 times workout per Week too much for the muscles to recover?
It sounds like the planned schedule will put too much stress on your body, there is no time for recovery. Will probably feel ok for 2-3 weeks but then the probability for overtraining or injuries will increase. Perhaps this QA can help you, see fitness.stackexchange.com/a/9950/3778
