Is this okay for starting PB exercise?
I am a bit overwhelmed with the new info. and trying to plan the perfect workout session...so can I just do this at least for now, which I think incorporates the main points:
2 days of walking for an hour at moderate pace.
1 day of sprinting for about 10 minutes on a track.
2 days of bodyweight exercises like pushups and squats along with some dumbbell moves for about 20 minutes (working out at home, so this would be great for me).
The way I design it for people is strictly walking in the beginning while they get the nutrition dialed in. Then we move to body weight strength, then to sprints, then to lifting, then to more lifting + mobility and flexibility, etc.

Thanks, The Rebooted Body.
I do think I can do a bit more than walking at this point, I just want to keep it relatively simple.
Anyone else have suggestions? Pretty please?...weren't you all beginners once too?
I have a dog which gets walked daily. How much depends on the weather so some days we go on one 30 minute walk and others up to three 30 minute walks. I do bodyweight/kettlebell exercises for 20-30 minutes on M/W/F and 30 minutes on my elliptical on T/Th at medium-high resistance but low speed. Haven't really started doing sprints yet. Plan on adding that on Sundays once the weather improves (Still getting snow & rain here). I switched to the above regimen after getting burnt out doing chronic cardio 5 days a week. But your plan sounds like a good start too.

When I was at my maximum weight, I started walking. Eventually I got down 30 pounds, to the point where I felt like I might be able to run again. Which I did and hurt myself.
There's no hurry on this project. Take it easy right now, push yourself later.
