    Seeking training advice!


    So here is my dilemma;

    I am a 21yr old Exercise Science undergrad and I am at my parents house for the summer. My father is seeking a weight loss program but is very limited time wise bc he is a semi truck driver with 10hr night shifts. His diet really is not that bad, I have been able to introduce wholesome real food into his diet. He does drink a boat load of coffee yet and not enough water. I have tried changing this but he says he needs to stay awake. So my question is what exercise should I suggest for him? I would really like to introduce some form of HIIT but it would need to be soft on the joints and simple. My education has done a great job of teaching me how to handle an athlete or a younger person but I need some help with the older, overweight population.
    Any comments would be greatly appreciated guys!

    lets start about as easy as he can get, get him a KB and tell him to do at least 100 total reps a day of swings. however the hell he needs to do it, just do 100 reps a day. when he can start doing 50 reps non stop up the weight by at least 15lbs or double the reps.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Would def try to get him off the coffee, especially if he drinks it with sugar and creamer. Find a good energy product maybe, or b vitamins. Also maybe red bull which is the only energy drink i would ever drink but only the 0 carb and cal ones they use caffein and b vitamins.
