  • Help with a beginner running plan

    So, I've been speaking with a recruiter and when I went in to speak with him we did some measurements, turns out I'm 4% body fat over and they say the best way to lose it is to run. I have not ran in over 9 years, any advice on how to 'restart' with a beginner running plan? If it helps. i'm 6 foot 6, 280 LBs.

      While Google can help you out, you may want to also look into some general aerobic exercises to work off that weight. There's a number of threads that have some great advice. You can check out SSG Ken's aerobic exercises at on the NG website, which is a good way to work on your cardio, which will, of course, help in the long run.

      Personally, I started by running short distances, and then working on extending the distances. I did a quarter mile for a week, then went to a half mile for the next week, etc. But your miliage may vary on that.
