I'm a 45M, 220 lbs, and probably around 20% fat. I'd like to get into an exercise routine that can ease me into hopefully a long term and more serious commitment to fitness.
I'm looking for an exercise routing / split that I can do on my own, with limited risk of injuries (I do not have any existing injuries, but I just want to be careful especially when I'm starting), and maximum benefits.
My gym seems to have most of the machines one would expect. I think I should opt for those instead of free weights at the moment (less likely for me to do them wrong, I would assume).
I assume that I should pick the machines that mainly provide me with compound exercises?
I'm not sure if I should be doing full body exercises every other day, or if I should do a 2-day split, or something else? I'm also not sure which exercises to do.
Any recommendations for a plan that I can follow (that gives me the best results)?
