You know just like how you can eat a large pizza with full garbage dress but as long as you wash it down with light beer you're good to go.
but not exactly what the OP was hoping to hear. I'm in the same boat as he is, no pun intended, and would like to drop a few over the winter rather than add them.

I don't know how old you are, but speaking from painful experiences, start with very light weights and slowly work your way up. And most importantly, plenty of stretching beforehand. The older you are, the more stretching you should do. Your joints and ligaments will thank you. Not a bad idea for light cardio afterwards, either.

At my age it is not the rate of return on my exercise investment, it is the rate of my investment. In other words do what keeps you coming back. Remember being able to work out tomorrow is more important than working out really hard today.

I'm down 17 pounds since mid-Sept with another ~10 to go.

According to the BMI chart, i'm supposed to be under 164lbs, at 5'8". I look quite skinny at that weight, but I have to redo my life insurance, and they rate you based on that criteria quite a bit.

Depending one your build that chart can be BS you may be able to get a different type of measurement. I'm 5' 9" I dropped allot 18 months ago last time I was at the Dr. I was 182 that puts me at "Overweight" on that chart, at that time I had visible abs with veins popping on my arms I was closer to shredded than fat. According to BMI charts I would need to be 164 to no be fat, I would have to lose 10lbs of muscle to do that.

Copied from a BMI calculator

"Note: Since Body Fat Percentage calculations use total body weight and not estimates of lean muscle mass and fat, BMI can not determine between the overweight and the more muscular. Use our Body Fat Calculator and Waist to Hip Ratio Calculator in combination with our BMI Calculator for a more accurate view of your body fat."

Good point. I stretch even before walking on the treadmill for my warm-up. As to the weights, I use pretty light weights to start out until I've built back strength and endurance. Right now I'm just using 10, 15 and 20 pound dumbbells. In a couple of weeks I'll move up to 15, 20 and 25s and eventually I'll be using the 25s, 30s and the barbell. But that takes months because I don't want to blow anything out.

Nothing but bench press and bicep curls all winter. Need to get the beach body ready for show time. Nothing gets the girls hotter than backing in to the tournament weigh station with your shirt off and a 250lb blue dog on the deck.

Secret: Go down below about 2 minutes before you back in to the weigh station and rip off a bunch of push ups so when you back in you're all puffed up.

Do this and you'll be beating the trim back with a bent butt 80.

Fighting big fish stand-up requires cardio plain and simple.
I was on a headboat a few years ago with a bunch of college football players. I caught 12 tuna, kept 3 large yellow fins all over 100 pounds. The football players could catch in twice the time and then lay on the deck crying like babies. The had big muscles, but limited cardio. The were maybe 20 years old and I was over 60 weighing 190 pounds at 6'2".
They could not get over how an old man could shake out his arms, tie on a new bait and hook-up again.
High reps with light weights and cardio are what you need to catch big fish stand-up. Endurance is king.

+1 for Yoga but you have to do it in a class with other people. Do cardio for an hour before a Yoga class and some light weights for a short bit after. If you incorporate a Bosu ball into the light weight training you can focus on core muscles while working on whatever muscle group at the same time.

i'm big into high speed jigging and my weakest links always seem to be my biceps, forearms and rear shoulders after a few hours of fishing. I've made it a purpose to focus more on 100% dumbbells, higher reps, lower weight and complex moves involving those groups.

before I took my pedal yak out for tripletail last year I put in many hours on the stationary bike so I knew i could go miles in the current - i really should've' considered launching at the outgoing tide and returning on the incoming

Brisk walk 3 mi. every morning, dumbbells & cardio 3X a week. If you want to get in shape I highly recommend Pilates but the first month can be like Marine boot camp.
