BACK, ABS, SHOULDERS.
You will need your back, with discs INTACT, when you get 40+!!

Once you find a program that you like, be consistent. Workout at least 4 times a week (3 for maintenance once you get to where you want to be).
Alternate muscle groups from each work out. Mix up your routine to aviod boredom and ultimately quitting. There's always something else to do instead!
Do not go to the gym for 3+ hours at a time, you will burn out after 2 weeks, I've seen it countless times with others trying to do too much too soon. See paragraph above.
Keep your workouts around 60 minutes and you won't feel obligated to work out. You'll probably start looking forward to it.
I'm 38 and no body builder, however, this is what I found works for me. Follow the basics, drink plenty of water, and stretch. I'm feeling more aches now than back when I used to be bullet proof! It's harder to get back into shape the older we get, it's easier to maintain it once you get it back. Just my $.02 worth, hope it helps.
