Is Losing Strength After 40 Natural?

There are many falsehoods that have developed over the years regarding aging and strength. As someone who has worked out all my life they have always seemed liked excuses to me, but they are things I hear all the time. Here are a few of the “LIES”, let’s call them what they are, I’d like to put to rest.

LIE#1: You naturally put on weight as you get older… WRONG!

Stop blaming those expanding love handles on getting older! In fact, of any other challenge, this is the simplest to combat. There are four factors which contribute to middle age weight gain: slowing metabolism, lower testosterone, poor diet and lack of exercise. Look at that list. Two of the four factors are completely within our control. It’s time to stop blaming those expanding love handles on getting older. It’s just an excuse. All you need to do is make the right food choices and take care with what you eat. That tiny change alone will stop the onset of weight gain.

But when it comes to strength, here’s another myth to bust…

LIE #2: As you get older, you naturally get weaker… WRONG!

I’ll show how wrong this lie is. Research from the University of Oklahoma found that over an eight-week period a group of middle-aged guys (35-50) succeeded losing body fat and building muscle. But that’s not all. Compared with a group of college-aged guys over the same period, the older guys lost MORE body fat and gained MORE muscle. So, let me say this again: None of this is inevitable. Yes, you’re susceptible… but it doesn’t have to be your future. Getting older isn’t the problem. (And any guy who blames age for their performance is making excuses.)

You don’t have to accept these lies.

LIE #3: As you age, you naturally lose energy… WRONG!

There’s one everyday reality that hits you harder than anything else: always feeling tired. To feel that overwhelming exhaustion every day is, well… exhausting. You wake up tired. Yawn your way through the work day. And then spend the evening slouched on the sofa unable to keep your eyes open.

And you pay the price.

You spend less quality time with your wife. Less time with your kids. Every activity is a struggle. Before you thought nothing of heading out to do any number of outdoor activities… now, you’re lucky if you make it through the evening. Your energy levels start on a downward spiral when your lack of energy reduces your activity level. It becomes a vicious cycle.

But here’s the thing about what I call the Energy Spiral. It goes up as well as down. Find the energy and get back into daily activity and the spiral turns upwards. More energy = even more energy. Reinvigorating your body to release enough energy to keep increasing energy levels needs to be a major part of any program.

LIE #4: Injuries are just going to happen as you get older… WRONG!

Remember what you were like in your 20s? Knocking around the gym. Lifting big. Huge gains every week. Eating whatever you wanted with no side-effects. And then what happened when you hit your 30s? Change happens. A nag turns into an ache. The gains take a little bit longer. The fat clings a little harder to your body than it used to. The realization hits: we’re not invincible. Progress is painful. What worked for you as a 20-year-old kid doesn’t work for you now.

It’s perfectly natural. Your body changes. But NONE of the programs reflect that change. They expect you to try nailing it like you did in your youth… and when you don’t get results, frustration sets in. You try working out harder. And for longer. Yet the results stall. Your energy starts dropping and soon you’re exhausted, frustrated or, even worse, injured. It doesn’t have to be that way. With the right program you can avoid injuries!

It’s worse than hitting a plateau. And it’s not just a case of changing it up or trying something different. The next stage is all about motivation…

LIE #5: Motivation is much harder to come by as we age… WRONG!

Of course, it’s not your fault. When you hit your 30s, life gets in the way. You mature. Your priorities change. Your days fill up with the everyday rigor of spending time on your career. You dedicate your free time on evenings and weekends to your family. Hanging out in the gym or sweating it out for hours on end stop having the same appeal. Your motivation wanes. Your diet slips. Life gets in the way. Your priorities may have changed… but your body still needs attention

As you can see, NONE of these issues are physiological.

Our challenges are not about our body. They are around what we choose to do with our body. These are the same challenges for every guy, like you and me. You may be experiencing one or more of these right now… you may be going through all three. By challenging and resolving each of these issues, you can turn back the clock. Deterioration and decay doesn’t have to be your reality.

I’ve found a program that works to help you overcome these lies we’ve all been told. Known as 40 Strong I think if you’ll give it a try, you’re going to be achieving the kind of results you did in your 20’s.

40 Strong is about you doing what you love to do when it comes to activity. This program is about choosing different ways to be physically active. Liking what you’re doing for exercise is the key to longevity and long-term results.

Because if you truly like something, it will be very hard to stop doing it.

I always like going back to children when it comes to explaining exercise and being active. Most of the children in this world have one thing in common; they like to play. Playing is exercise. Kids run, jump, twist, climb and move their bodies with tremendous power, strength and agility. As we age, we lose that ability. Not because we got older, but because we stopped moving like that every day and this point is missed by many experts in the field of strength and health. This program is about adding recess back into your life and having that time everyday where you get to play in different ways. In doing that you will regain energy, muscle, mobility, confidence and your life will be forever changed.

RO Water Purifiers – Your Source To Health

Water is the most demanded and the most important medium on Earth as well as in the human body. It is the basic necessity to lead a life.

Water is fundamental to all the living creatures and in human body it is the primary component of every bodily fluid and involved in almost every bodily function.

Our body needs water & there’s no substitution to it. One has to drink at least 7-8 glass a day to be healthy and cheerful. But here are some of the uncomfortable facts: in spite after so many years of independence, still there are plenty of households in the country that don’t have adequate amount of drinking water facility. Still over 80% of our population is dependent upon the tap water thus, exposing them to various water borne diseases.

Here are some of the disadvantages of consuming tap water, further in this article, we would also tell you the benefits of pure water and why having water purifier is so important to our health.

  • Comes from the surface: Most of the tap water comes from the surface or ground water and thus, chances are high that it would be contaminated with harmful substances that are harmful for your health.
  • They are not fit for drinking: As straight as we should say, tap water is just not safe for drinking that’s it. Over 50% of the municipal water supplies don’t meet the government standard. Though government works hard to purify it but still sediments and other contaminants are picked through ageing pipes anyways.
  • They are not meant for drinking: The tap water which comes to our house is basically meant for washing clothes, utensils and at best for bathing. But most of us use for drinking also & that’s why the problem arises.

Well, you may find the above mentioned facts a bit uneasy, but it is really very important to understand the crux of it. We should understand why drinking pure water is so essential for having good health and why consuming water is just not a mere time pass but a necessity of life. So let’s discuss:

Drinking purified water does a lot more than just filling your tummy and quenching your thirst. It keeps your body in great working order. Drinking water throughout the day (one glass every 20-30 minutes) will help your body function at optimal levels. It can improve memory and concentration (most essential for the young students), reduce joint pain, chronic fatigue and allergy symptoms; it can also reduce the risk of cancer by 50 to 80% (beneficial for elderly people).

As we all know that Science & Technology have really grown and keep coming with the new solution of every concern. RO (Reverse osmosis) purification system is such which is really becoming popular because of its ability to provide fresh and clean water. Though it is not a new concept and is in the market for years, but because of the recent level of growing water borne diseases, it came into the prominence. First of all, we have to see how it works.

In Reverse Osmosis process, the present contaminants in the water are removed by using pressure to force water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane. During the whole process, most of the harmful substances are washed out. Thus, the water you drink afterwards becomes tastier and makes you feel more energetic.

Nowadays, seeing the severity of water pollution, having a simple water filter is just not enough. Therefore most of the water purifiers nowadays are intact with the latest RO+UV technology. Now some may argue the price of these purifiers and how cannot be afforded by all the people. True, RO purifiers are indeed a bit expensive but they can be easily afforded by the middle class families and with the passage of time and increase in the level of income, we are pretty much sure that even the lower class would be able to buy it.

How Can You Get A Fit And Slim Body?

The desire to look fit is nothing wrong. We all do have the same feeling at some point of our life and the fatter ones out there will definitely agree with what I say. Slimming down not only gives you a great look but also makes you look attractive. Therefore, if you have the same desire in your mind, we advise you to follow certain tips that will help you reach your goal.

• You can start with drinking 2 glasses of water at the beginning of your day. This will give your metabolism a good start. Water also helps to remove unnecessary toxins from the body. The added advantage is that water does not have any calories so it will not do you any harm. Even during the day, if you drink water in plenty then it will keep your hunger in control and restrain you from consuming calorie rich food.

• Exercising is a good thing for the health and well-being. If you are not able to exercise regularly, you can just take a walk after the meals. Walking burns out a great deal of calories. This will help to keep your weight under control in the long run as the glucose is cleared from the blood stream.

• Processed food contains a lot of salts. Even chips, and the things you mostly love eating have salt content in them that works as a preservative to add taste. Reduce the intake of salts as too much of it increases the blood pressure.

• You are advised to go on a fiber rich diet. These foods will keep you full as they take a longer time to digest and make you have a lesser appetite for food. Thus, it boosts your slimming regime and keeps our weight in check.

• The last but not the least advice for you is to eat homemade food. Saying so, I do mean that you need to stay away from the lip-smacking delicious food that the cafés and restaurants offer. You have to lessen the number of visits you make there in a week and consequently in a month. While you eat at home, you will be able to monitor what you are eating.

All these things, if you are following them, will make your fit and get a slim body that you have wished for a long time. Not only that you will become healthy and would be able to lead a better life by keeping away several diseases.
