Men Can’t Build Muscle After 40 … or Can They?

Building Muscle After 40

Muscle building can be a complex phenomenon especially if you have passed the age of 40. The muscles take a little more effort to build up and a lot more dedication. In today’s materialistic world, it is not unusual to lose track of your exercise regime. Most men come to this realization after passing a certain age when they begin to feel the onset of ‘growing old’. This realization may also be the result of some health hazard that men may be looking forward too. Whatever the cause may be, the good news is that you can build up muscle irrespective of your age.

If you have decided to get back on your long-lost exercise regime, you need to make sure that you get yourself checked-up at the doctor’s. This is to ensure that you don’t exert yourself in the presence of an underlying heart condition or other medical ailment which is at the risk of worsening via exercise. At the age of 40, the testosterone levels of men begin to decline which interferes with the growth of muscles. High amounts of testosterone aid in quick buildup of muscle but testosterone supplements are not something that we recommend. Instead, you can opt for exercises that naturally augment the levels of testosterone in your body and thus help in building muscles or use supplements that help increase testosterone in your body naturally (for example a combination of Magnesium, Zinc and B-6 have been shown to help boost testosterone levels naturally). Learn 6 ways you can boost your testosterone naturally.

Prior to beginning any kind of routine, be sure to ask yourself what it is that you are aiming for?  Do you want to get rid of the extra fat and tone your body? Do you wish to increase your stamina, endurance and speed? Is it mass that you want to add to your body? When you know the answers to these questions, it becomes easier for your trainer to tailor your routine.

How to get started?

Joining the gym is always a great way to get your exercise routine up and going. Gymnasiums offer personal trainers to their members which provides an opportunity for a more personal and interactive workout. For people who are not very comfortable with the idea of joining the gym, getting your own equipment is the best thing. With that you will need to hire a personal trainer or buy a book or DVD that provides manual instructions.

Some precautions that must be taken before and during workout

Always begin your workout with a warm up. Though this may sound very stupid but people do miss out on warming up and end up inflicting injuries onto themselves. Stretches, cardio and sit ups work as the best warm up exercises. Refraining from over-do of a workout is also something you need to be careful of. With aging, the natural bouncing back capacity of the body decreases and it becomes difficult to rise back from a disease. Keeping age in mind, being cautious about your diet is also necessary. Switching to whole grain foods and letting go of junk is the first step. Consuming 5 to 6 smaller meals per day rather than 3 large meals keeps your metabolism accelerated and thus helps in burning more calories. Letting go of smoking and drinking habits is yet another imperative thing to do. Try to keep yourself hydrated with water to ensure that your muscles as well as your joints are lubricated.

There you go! Now you have the cheat-sheet for gaining muscles after the age of 40. Eat right, train carefully and never give up.
