Get strong, ripped and athletic at any age here
People look for workouts for men over 40 or workouts for men over 50, etc. Is that really the right mentality though? Does something change so dramatically that would force you to have to pick up the “old person” workout instead of the ones being done by somebody half your age? Well, if you allow your mind to believe that and you’ve allowed your body to follow then maybe. That said, I hope by the end of this video you will have a much different opinion on the right workout for men regardless of age.
To illustrate the errors in this thinking just remember back to when you were a child. Do you remember how you used to be able to bend over and touch your toes with nearly perfect hamstring flexibility. How about being able to squat all the way down to the ground and back up without the slightest joint discomfort or mobility issues.
The problem is, that as we age we stop doing the things that kept us feeling young. It’s a case of “use it or lose it”. If you don’t continue to do the workouts and exercises and simple daily activities that tested your physicality, you will lose much of the attributes you gained from doing these things.
I used to have to jump a fence to get from one class to the other at college. If I didn’t, I would have to walk all the way around the campus and it would have made it much more difficult to get to my next class on time. During a single semester spent off site at an internship I took a hiatus from fence jumping! The first time I jumped after coming back months later, I felt as if my ankles would give out and that knees and hips felt a ground reaction shock I hadn’t felt in a long time. I didn’t use it, so I lost it.
The same thing happens with your workouts and training as you age. If you stop doing things in your workouts because you allow yourself to get too tight or you sacrifice your mobility, then you are only making it harder on yourself to regain those attributes the older you get. In order to feel young and fit forever you have to not only make sure you are continuing to do the things that make you strong now but that represent every facet of well being.
A complete approach must include balance, mobility, agility, strength, flexibility, and even mental toughness and a resilience to aging! Don’t simply accept that you are getting old because a number tells you that you are. If you stay active and fit you will continue to be strong, ripped and muscular despite what you have been told you should look like “for a man your age”!
