Reasons You’re Struggling To Build Muscle After 40…https://www.liveanabolic.com
Are you struggling to build muscle, especially as a man over 40? As you get older, your body produces less testosterone and less hormones. That makes it more difficult for you to build muscle. As you age, you have more wear and tear on your joints, which can cause pain and less mobility. These are issues that can make it more difficult for you to build muscle and get the most out of your workouts. Now, let’s get started with the 5 reasons you’re struggling to build muscle after 40.
Tip #1: YOU ARE STARTING TOO FAST. In the beginning, you are motivated and ready to jump right into it. Workouts, nutrition, cardio, no rest days, you are rushing the results to get it going quicker. You need to gradually work your way into it, slow down. Your body needs to rest so you don’t get burned out at the beginning of your journey to build muscle.
Tip #2: NOT HAVING A PLAN. When you are jumping into it, you need to have a plan for what you are doing. Especially when it comes to your workouts, you need to have a specific plan of exercises to do to help you reach your specific goals.
Tip #3: LACK OF PROPER RESISTANCE TRAINING. It is important to use compound, multi-joint lifts in your workouts. It is okay to use lighter weight as well, you don’t need to lift really heavy weights. There are many variations of exercises to do, if your lack of mobility prohibits you from doing certain exercises.
Tip #4: NUTRITION. If you are trying to build muscle then you need to eat at a caloric surplus. If you are eating at a caloric deficit, you are not going to build muscle. Avoid processed foods because that will make you just build fat. You want to eat whole nutritious foods with proteins, carbs, and essential fats as well. This will also help you optimize your testosterone levels.
Tip #5: LACK OF REST. You are building muscle when you are resting, not when you are at the gym. When you are at the gym, your goal is to break down those tiny muscle fibers. It is during the recovery, where your body repairs your muscles and grows.
