Hello everyone and thanks for letting me join your community.

I am 50 years old and stand at 5'9 and 176lbs at this time. Right now I commute to a job 40 miles away by train and I seem to have very little time to workout. As I have 45 minutes available what are some great workouts that can be done within that time frame? Any tips welcomed.

stay with the basic exercises....i would recomend (in your case) only 2 Exercises in a 45 Minutes training, training 2 muscles groups in 1 workout, so itīs only 1 exercise for a certain muscle group.

for example

Chest & back

1. Bench-press, warm-up 4-5 Sets, do 2 heavy sets (3-6 reps), after 2 medium heavy (8-12 reps) + 1-2 high rep sets

2. Barbell rows, warm-up 4-5 sets, the same scheme like in bench press

You only have to warm up for 2 exercises which spend some time....but in these exercise you do 5-6 "working sets"


Legs shoulders

i would also recomend to use for the next training cycle different basic exercises (like incline bench press, Pull-ups)
but i donīt know how often you can train 3,4,5,6 days a week ?
