Getting fit and staying fit requires hard work, discipline and being committed to achieving your personal goals. At different stages of our lives, certain fitness goals may feel like they are harder or easier to achieve than others.
However, your health and well-being should be a priority regardless of age, and we should learn to train smarter, not harder.
For instance, men in their late teens and early 20s find that building and maintaining their muscle mass comes easier to them, and they notice results pretty quickly after starting a new workout plan.
However, men in their 40s and 50s may take a little longer to see results, and many find that building muscle takes more focus and dedication than it did when they were younger. This could be due to the fact that in the latter part of their teenage years, and well into their late 20s, testosterone levels are at their peak, which makes building muscle easier for the body. Not to mention the extra energy and free time we have during the younger phases in life that make getting to the gym and staying motivated easier to accomplish.
The good news is that regardless of what stage of life you’re in, your body has the ability to adapt and improve; and even if you’re busy, you can find ways to train and get the best results from your fitness plan.
Here are my three tips to help you get the best results on your journey toward achieving your personal fitness goals.
Remember to celebrate your ‘mini victories’ each step of your journey toward achieving your ultimate fitness goals.
