You must get your physician’s approval before beginning any gym workout programs. The recommendations I make on this site are not medical guidelines but are for educational purposes only.

Don’t lift heavy weights if you are alone, inexperienced, injured or fatigued. Always ask for instruction and assistance when lifting. Don’t perform any exercise without proper instruction.

I advise readers to take full responsibility for your own safety and know your limits. Please do not take risks beyond your level of experience, ability, training and fitness.

You must have a complete physical examination if you are sedentary, if you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes, if you are overweight, or if you are over 30 years old. Please discuss all nutritional changes with your physician or a registered dietician.

Take care.
