Thanks so much, Ron! I really appreciate the thought you put into that. It helps to have a male perspective...I know muscle is muscle for men and women, but I just wanted to be sure that the plan targeted the muscles guys like to target...if that makes any sense.
I did get him going on HIIT last night with the bike, so he's on his way. I'm going to print out your response and post it up plain as day. Thanks again!
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
