We appreciate the opportunity to offer our viewpoint.
Big George has already hit on most of the key points.
First the noticeable but few Negative ones.
- Metabolism definitely slows down.
- Recovery from hard training sessions and destructive drinking or eating habits is much slower.
- You can’t play hard surface or contact sports anymore (without risk of serious injury)-No basketball-Football or anything else that will cause you extreme pain.
- Squatting or heavy leg work needs to be reduced if not eliminated altogether. (Trust us when we say not doing this will cause much issue later in your life.)
Now the Positives (let me tell you folks-the positives far outweigh the negatives)
- You know exactly what you want-when you want it and most importantly- HOW TO GET IT!
- Your training in the gym is fool proof. You know what exercises produce results for you and how to apply them during your yearly training protocols
- You can contract muscle fibers by now. Almost every session (which as Big George correctly points out is less than an hour-sometimes only 30 minutes)is about maximum efficiency with minimum time spent.
- Focus and determination as Big George mentioned are unyielding. Every session becomes productive because your focus is on doing what you need to do and doing it.
- You see the big picture-after 40-your responsibilities to your kids, wife, career is of paramount importance to you. You don’t have time to waste dilly dallying in the gym or any area of life. You live life with gusto and panache to make shit happen.
- Neurologically your body is much more efficient. Your body can hold onto muscle much easier than your 20’s when your metabolism was faster and less efficient. Muscle Memory is greater especially per relative unit of time spent training.
- Nutritionally you know what you can eat and how it affects you metabolically. You’re less likely to ‘cheat’ or ‘deviate’ from normal clean eating habits.
We could go on and on.
Honestly-our life is so much better now than in our 20’s and early 30’s especially when it comes to our health and fitness. I can’t imagine wanting to ever go back.
Don’t believe me?
Monica and Jay in our 20’s.
Monica and Jay in our 30’s
Now look at us at 43 and 42.
Isn’t it CRYSTAL CLEAR our current lifestyle habits support an ongoing reversal of our biological clocks? Monica tells everybody she gets younger with age.
These pics should provide motivation to anyone who thinks it hopeless to become fabulously fit. We are living proof change is possible.
We encourage people reading our site for the first time to look around. There are articles of interest here for both guys and gals. And by no means is our content only geared to people 40 and over. HELL NO. This blog is about “being the best you at any age”.
How can we help you if you don’t tell us what you want to discuss? Our goal is to pay it forward purely and simply.
Be the BEST YOU at Any Age!
