How hard is it to stay fit and lean in your 40s? Posted on February 8, 2023 by Anonymous How hard is it to stay fit and lean in your 40s?
The principals never change. To lose fat, eat a caloric deficit. To gain muscle, lift and eat a surplus.
The only thing that has changed for me as I got older is how much sleep effects recovery. Ideally you get a good nights sleep regardless of age, but you definitely feel it a lot more in your 40s.
But as said, you should be getting good sleep regardless of age. I left a lot of gains on the table by training and then going out to party late in my 20s and 30s.
This. A study of people on the same amount of calories and similar workout routines but with on egroup that got 5.5 hours and 1 that got 8 hours showed that the 8 hours sleep gained/retained 60% more muscle and loss 60% more fat than the 5.5 hours.
it's tougher but if you manage to stay lean in your 20's and 30's you'll have no problem
Not that hard if you are in the 10 1/3 socioeconomic status giving you leisure time and good Healthcare.
Hellishly hard if you are overworked, poor and divorced with a household to maintain by yourself and see your children 1/6 of the time meaning you have to totally focus on being at all of their activities not during your parenting time so that they experience you as a father.
So I guess just win at life and you'll be a winner.
healthy food is cheaper and nearly as easy as goyslop
crock pot + rice cooker and you don't ever even have to turn on a stove
>healthy food is cheaper
ask me how i know you're american
Not him and not American. But you can cook lunch for a whole week with some rice, chicken and frozen vegetables. Just do the same with dinner. Breakfast is whatever. The idea that shit food is cheaper is a retard cope by people who don't know how to cook.
Live on potatoes, veggies, Greek yogurt and whatever health food exists and only drink water.
It might still be hard but you'll lose weight for sure.
Avoiding goyslop, alcohol and deserts are priority one
I'm 38 and I'm still in decent shape, somehow still have a 4 pack visible. But I've been lifting since I was a teen with a few off years
I've posted before already
If your goals are the same as when you were 20, it's harder now. But you can set easier goals because much less is required to mog everyone close to your age when everyone else is fat and weak
I'm 50 with abs. In my experience you have to modify habits to adjust to the aging of your body. No breakfast, no soda/beer (straight scotch/mezcal), sprinting to create afterburner effect, Apple Cider Vinegar to fuck with stubborn fat, L citrulline (does wonders for nitric oxide, blood, and cellular repair).
If you're 40+ there's no reason not to be on TRT. Free lean mass for life.
Yes. 500 mg per week of test + 500 eq + 6 week runs of 50mg per day Anavar or Winstrol with Trent & Mast cutting cycles thrown in for good measure.
it depends on what your standards are,if you compare yourself to people your age then not being a disgusting greaseball fatty is enough
It's not that hard. Don't be a pig. Exercise.
The only reason people get fat in their 40s is due to lifestyle changes and laziness
Easy if you're single and don't have a job.
by single i mean *don't have kids
