THE BENEFITS OF STRENGTH TRAINING FOR MALES OVER 50
STRENGTH TRAINING HAS BENEFITS FOR EVERYONE BUT FOR MALES OVER 50 IT CAN BE LIFE CHANGING!
DO YOU WANT TO LOOK AND FEEL BETTER?
FEEL MORE CONFIDENT, ENERGISED, LOSE A BIT OF FAT, GAIN SOME MUSCLE AND STRENGTH?
DO YOU WANT SHORT AND LONG TERM BENEFITS THAT WILL HELP TO IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE NOW AND IN THE FUTURE? DO YOU WANT A NEW CHALLENGE?
WELL STRENGTH TRAINING IS FOR YOU!
AS MALES APPROACH 50 YEARS OF AGE PHYSIOLOGICAL CHANGES START TO OCCUR TO THE HUMAN BODY.
WE START TO SEE A REDUCTION IN TESTOSTERONE LEVELS (ANDROPAUSE), STRENGTH/POWER (DYNAPENIA) AND MUSCLE MASS (SARCOPENIA).
SKELETAL MUSCLE IS THE LARGEST ORGAN IN THE BODY,AS IT IS NOW SEEN AS AN ENDOCRINE ORGAN. IT HAS A MASSIVE IMPACT NOT ONLY ON YOUR PHYSICAL HEALTH (AS PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT) BUT ALSO ON YOUR MENTAL, NEUROLOGICAL AND METABOLIC HEALTH!
FROM 50 YEARS OF AGE WE LOSE ABOUT 10 POUNDS OF LEAN MUSCLE MASS PER DECADE. GOING FOR WALKS OR DOING CARDIO (RUNNING, ROWING ETC.) ALONE WILL NOT STOP THE DECLINE.
THESE ISSUES IF NOT RESOLVED CAN HAVE A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON YOUR SOCIAL AND FAMILY LIFE AND PUT A STOP TO YOU ACHIEVING THOSE DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS YOU HAVE.
STRENGTH TRAINING IS THE BEST WAY TO COMBAT THESE ISSUES!
NOT TO MENTION YOU WILL FEEL EMPOWERED, ENERGISED AND YOU WILL HAVE THE AESTHETIC BENEFITS WHEN YOU START STRENGTH TRAINING WHICH WILL IMPROVE YOUR CONFIDENCE AND OUTLOOK ON LIFE!
IT'S THE CLOSEST THING YOU WILL GET TO A MAGIC PILL WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS ONLY BENEFITS!
THE CAVEAT TO THIS THOUGH IS THAT IT NEEDS TO BE DONE CORRECTLY WITH PROGRESSIVE INDIVIDUALISED PROGRAMS TO MAXIMISE RESULTS AND REDUCE INJURY RISK.
A LIST OF THE MANY BENEFITS BELOW:
INCREASED LEAN MUSCLE MASS
INCREASE IN STRENGTH AND PERFORMANCE
INCREASED METABOLIC RATE
INCREASED QUALITY OF LIFE
INCREASE / PRESERVE JOINT HEALTH AND CARTILAGE
INCREASE IN INJURY RESISTANCE
