I am 38 year old male 173cm height and weighing 80kgs and yes my bmi is little above normal. I have been on and off working out in gym through my 20s but never serious could bench max 80kg.
I recent started cycling about a month ago initially doing 6km in 16 minutes. I have a hybrid with single speed. Now I am able to to do 10km in close to 25mins but these surely leaves me lil drowsy post lunch hours but I feel happy.
Early this year I had started running but due to my own mistake ended with left knee inflammed and hence can't run though the knee is lot better now.
To make it more interesting I brought some weights and started doing alternate days cycling and other days upper body exercise like curls,planks, push ups,shoulder press. My plan is to do 5 days of this mix and 2 rest days.
My question is whether this approach is OK for for fitness and weight loss. I want my bmi to get lower.
