gonna give this a go.  I'm 62 5-10ish 186.
I missed training due to a medical malfucktion and
didn't lift or ride (I even cycle) from dec 17 to this may.
in december i was riding 50-75 miles a week at a 12 mph clip
and lifting when i couldn't ride.

I don't flat bench. my shoulders are junk.

real weights my best in dec deadlift 295x3  squat 225 for whatever
I don't care about squatting any heavier than 225.  some months I can't
get my right arm back on the bar to squat.
leg press 6 wheels a side for 12-15

I went from 205 to 175 to 186 now.  tonna muscle lost for an old guy

trying to get a routine down and getting starting points in past days.
just getting back to squatting near my bodyweight and deadlift 225 for some reps
today.  think I'm gonna do a 3 day split. 
I do mostly 1 set training.
my weights should go mad up.  I feel strong on the road bike and ride indoors or out for an hour, days i don't lift.
goals. dead 3 wheels squat 2 for 5 or so  curl the 50's.  row my bodyweight+
wonder if i can find an old heifer to do mixed pairs Smiley
not lifting tomorrow

Sounds like your heavy into biking. I was on a biking kick for awhile. I was never good at it but I gave it my all. I did a bike tour in Iowa a long time ago. Rode from the west side to the east side in 5 days. We rode roughly about a 100 miles a day. It was hot as hell and every day seemed like it was around 90F.  The rolling hills of Iowa were a bitch. It felt like up and down for the whole trip. Camping every night was an experience for this non camper. I also use to ride a mountain bike before there was an explosion of people doing it. I had the woods to myself then like a light switch the trail was saturated.

Good luck with your lifting routine. I know how hard it is to squat with a bad shoulder. Hard to get the arm back. Consider the leg press, hack and dumbbell squats. I have been doing no weight squats lately with good results. Guys that laugh at body weight squats should try them going through a full range of motion with a moderate cadence. I bet they would be hating life when the reps added up. Lately on Tnation I have been reading about hard core trainers using body weigh squats, body weight lunges, and body weight single calf raises. It's interesting to hear how they are making gains going weight less.
