Alpha13 saidHeavy squats to help with the decline in growth hormone and Paleo diet to I agree about the heavy squats...problem is, have to watch the lower back...but, will up my weights and see....thx
burn fat the excercise can't easily get to. The 12 week workouts on here are terrific and start a naked yoga practice.
I agree. The lower back is a big concern for 40 somethings. I would recommend lunges instead. If you have to do squat, I would agree with the earlier comment. Lighter weights. But increase the reps.
The goal as we get older is not to try and do the crazy.excercises we did in our 20 and 30s. But instead do lighter weights and more reps. And lots of stretches and vegetables.
Nope . Check out all the out of shape people that spend hours on cardio machines. I spend around an hour a week at the gym. Your body has this ability to ignore non challenging exercise.You must go heavy to jump strart things.
Yoga stretching , paleo diet and cleanses will fix your "bad back" . Its generally kidney congestion and resulting poor circulation /muscle weakness.
Pain is telling you that you need to focus on this first and a core based workout is great for that. And dont forget deep tissue work. You muscles are carrying a life time of "sin" .Bodywork opens up closed down Circulation and you aren't going to heal and build without that.
And remove failure programming from your mind. Why would you say you can't compete with a 20 year old from the get go? I am in
better shape than when I was in my 20's and I not a gym rat by any means.
