I am an ex-weight lifter. I switched to cardio strictly since I’m getting older and I can’t deadlift / bench like I used to…I realized strength training is still an important component, however, and want to ease back into it. Any tips on not overdoing it or under doing my workouts? I never know if I should focus more on reps/lower weight rather than maxing out/less reps. Also I feel I do too much variety so how do I split up my work? (Pull vs. push)? TIA!

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?
HR recommended I apply for the short term disability program (mental), for which I need to have an independent therapist evaluate my mental condition. An independent therapist quoted me $2-2.5K for the evaluation (their billable rate is $350). Anyone know if this range/amount is normal for assessing a person's mental ability to work? Seems really expensive!
