Building Muscle After 50…

Today is going to be a little different, and it is not going to be a workout video. I want to sit down and talk to you about building muscle after 50. Is it still possible? Well the answer to that is yes, you can build muscle after 50. However, it is going to be tougher because you are older. I know you have heard me say this a lot, but a reason it is harder is because of testosterone. As we get older, testosterone naturally decreases because we may not be as active as we used to be. We get used to trying and do things the easiest way possible. That is a mentality you have to get out of, even something small, just park a little farther instead of looking for a close parking spot.

I encourage you to PUSH YOURSELF. It helps to find someone to motivate you and push you to become better. If you lose your body fat, you will look more muscular and ripped. Another huge thing when it comes to building muscle and losing fat is YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. Abs are made in the kitchen, and so is muscle. EATING GOOD FOODS CONSISTENTLY is important for building muscle after 50. It is okay to have cheat meals, it is okay to make mistakes, just get back on the wagon and start up again. Another huge key for how to build muscle after 50 is YOU NEED TO LIFT WEIGHTS! Resistance training is necessary, and when it comes to injuries, you can’t give up. Listen to your body and make adjustments to your workout routine to help your body rest and recover.

Something you really need to stay away from is drinking too much alcohol. That is going to hinder your muscle building process. It is okay to have a couple days a week to drink, but just not everyday. This is going to take time, you are not going to build a ton of muscle in a few weeks. Stick with it and stay persistent, don’t use it as an excuse. If you really watch your nutrition, you are going to start fat loss first. Something that is really important is, I want you to TAKE PROGRESS PICTURES. You will not realize how far you have come, but the pictures will help you see the change. Something that gets a lot less attention than it should is, YOU NEED TO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. Stay hydrated and force yourself to drink water. If you feel thirsty then it is too late, you are already dehydrated. The last thing I really want you to focus on is SLEEP. You need to get 6-8 hours of sleep a night. Muscle repair occurs when you are sleeping, especially when you hit the deep REM sleep. Also, getting a good amount of sleep will help reduce your stress levels.
