Some great points so far.
Squatter brought up diet. Another good topic to think about. Like the training programs, most TDEE calculators do not do a very good job for us geezers. Plug in my numbers to any of the caloric formulas and you will come up with an average of about 2850 calories to maintain. I can tell you that my actual TDEE is closer to 2250. Geezers have to work harder to process and synthesize protein and, IMHO, tend to hold fat faster than young bucks.
What do you have to do to cut or bulk as a geezer?
