At 63 and also at 5'8", I'd NEVER get my weight that low. I think I was 165 when I was in high school running track & cross-country, and at 177 right now, I'm struggling to get the weight down to 164!
I might suggest, Doug (if you have access to it) TRX suspension training. It can be a really intense full-body workout that gets all the muscle groups including upper body, lower limbs and core. If you're the disciplined type, the equipment is relatively dirt cheap
and you can do it at home. I'm not that disciplined, so I take a 1-hour TRX class each week over the winter...
