So I'm thinking about quitting smoking. I figure getting myself back in shape will be a good way to take my mind off of quitting. Got a few questions, though.
First, I'm a smoker. Should I wait, and how long should I wait before I start working on aerobic exercise? I've heard inhaling steam from boiling water can help improve my lung function.
Second, I'm out of shape. What's a good start for me? I'm stronger in my lower body than in my upper body. I'm quite ashamed of my benches.
Third, I've got tight hamstrings. What's a good way to loosen em up?
Oh, last thing, what about a diet? I'm a bit preferential to meat. Fruit I can half stand, but most vegetables I have never been able to be in the same room as much less eat. Is there a way around eating veggies? I remember one time I tried veggie burgers and they weren't half bad. But with a diet, should I be worried about calorie count? Fat intake? Carbs? I'm rather uninformed on dieting.
EDIT: For those wondering, I haven't been regularly working out in about 5 years. I used to be in -alright- shape, but now I'm not in shape at all. I used to be the kind to go as hard as a could and push my body's limits every single time with every single exercise. For instance, I went from barely being able to squat a bar to being able to squat 500 in about a month. I consider that quick. Not sure if I already had that potential and I just improved my form, or if I just put on muscle that fast.
