Yes! Glad you are considering this! It's a good way to maintain muscle and bone density!

Check the links in my signature - you might find them helpful.

The ExRx website in particular is a great source of knowledge for this. Good luck!

I was 30 years ago. Could bench and squat 315 at 165 lbs.

Started keto 8 months ago. Went from 250 to 215 and stalled. Started lifting 9/1/18 after a 20 year hiatus.

Muscle memory is great!

Thank you for the information!

I thought I might try Orangetheory. I'm going to look right now and see if anyone has posted about it on this site.

Thought I would bubble this to the surface. I would not say that I am a body builder, but I would say that my goals in lifting are to get stronger and look better. This is much more of a challenge at the back half of 56 than it was at 26, but I am making progress. I would be interested in seeing the workout routines from other folks. Here is my routine, which I think I have finally fine tuned this week (repeated twice each week):

Day 1 - 3 rounds of 15 burpees, 8 chin ups, 5 pull ups, 100 meters farmers carry with 55 lbs. tractor weights, 10 shoulder shrugs after the 100 meter walk
- 3 sets of 8 reps dumbbell lat pulls (70)
- 3 sets of 8 reps shoulder dumbbell press, seated (50)
- 75 reps leg raises holding 20# medicine ball overhead
Day 2 - 4 sets bench press (warm up set of 10 at 155, 3 sets of 8 at 185)
- 3 sets of dumbbell chest press, 10 reps, 70 lbs
- 3 sets of 10 dumbbell pullovers with 10 presses at end, 70 lbs.
- 3 sets of 8 dips with 15 lbs added
- 4 sets of dead lift (hex) 8, 6, 4, 2 starting at 195, add 20 each set
Day 3 - 2-4 mile run

I plan to add morning pushups and planks in (I am an afternoon workout person). I need to get more abs into it, and I am experimenting with other body weight exercises (bug).

I have had some nagging injuries in the past, and did get some cortisone shots in my elbows a few years back, but overall I feel pretty good lifting. Losing 20 lbs recently has improved my pullups and dips.

So if there are any guys or gals pushing iron as they low carb, I would love to hear about your routines.

After reading about weight lifting as an exercise in Dr. Benjamin Bikman's 2020 book Why We Get Sick : The Hidden Epidemic at the Rood of Most Chronic Disease and How to Fight It, I want to try it but don't know where to start.

Where to start really depends on your fitness level and what equipment you have available to you, but generally you should start light, with a combination of body weight exercises and dumbbell exercises (or machine work if available). Having a simple bench provides a good platform.

Another alternative to consider is sand bag workouts. Sandbags are extremely versatile, allow for you to adjust the weight easily, and provide very practical strength. Just buy a high quality workout sand bag if you go that route.

Once you get going and see the 1st visible evidence in your musculature, you may become hooked
