What matters is getting back on the wagon. Good on you for getting back into the swing of things.

Don't forget about biking as a part of your fitness program. Swimming is great, so is walk/running, too. Biking works different muscles, or the same ones in a different way.

It need not be expensive. Forget all those carbo-titanium exotic tri-bikes. I bought a "comfort bike" from Craig's list for less than $200. It is essentially a relaxed road bike with straight bars, and it's much more comfortable even for an old fat man. You aren't going to race in the Tour of Anywhere, just get good exercise, so you don't need the latest ultra-fancy, incredibly light miracle bike. If you know what you are looking for, you can find good bikes very reasonably priced. I found a Trek, a couple of years old, and in great shape. You must know what size you take, and get a good fit, You need a helmet, gloves, decent shorts and you are set.

There is lots of bike path around here, although it is essentially flat. You can ride up and down the Strand, all over Coronado, and probably all around the Bay with very little exposure to traffic.

Crossfit/Kettlebells/Cardio/Yoga/Diet..........I went from 298 down to 230 in 6 months working in Iraq.

When I hit a plateau, I took a few days off to let my body recover, then I amped up the kettlebells and cardio (stationary bike).

Good Luck

What about us guys who are 5'10 145-150? Where is the balance amid physique,muscle-mass, and peak fitness when it comes to the individual's natural size and skeletal frame?

Since you are asking here at SOCNET, take 800 mg of Motrin and run it out. Me (and most of my SOF friends) live with dull aches and pains 24/7; some like me, for the past 35 years. You can hack it or pack it.

jostha2008...this Forum doesn't work that way. Read the kettlebell thread or search the web for kettlebell work outs. The subjects been covered and there's plenty of information to put something together on your own.
