Why You Should Start (Or Re-Start)
From my experience, everyone can improve their strength and mobility, even dramatically transform their overall health for the better, and regain that beloved muscle tone that’s been lost with age.
And it’s never too late to begin! In fact for beginners, any decent training program will improve your strength and mobility significantly. You will get strength gains every 3 to 6 weeks, this rapid progress will immediately give you a sense of motivation. The adult beginner often wonders why he or she didn’t start earlier – it’s not as hard as they thought it would be! If you have never practiced any form of strength training before and you start in your forties, fifties or sixties, I promise you will make rapid gains.
For those of you who just want to sweat and you are not too concerned about making significant gains, you can train to maintain your current fitness level, training for maintenance is much easier than training for constant progress.
Now even if you have been exercising regularly for let’s say, the past 5 years, you probably have lots of potential to improve your strength and mobility – you just need a more structured & holistic program to develop that potential. It is likely that you may have been under-training movements that you didn’t like or didn’t realise were important.
On the flip side, some of you have a history of consistently overtraining, leading to chronic fatigue and chronic aches and pains. Learning and practicing more mobility exercises as well as breathing exercises would be greatly beneficial.
What About That Spare Tire/Cellulite That’s Just Hanging Off Me?
I’m not going to lie. Trying to train to become massively muscular like the superheroes you see in the Avengers is hard enough for twenty year old. Once you are over forty, hormonal changes means that bulking up is either impossible or significantly harder. That’s the way nature has built us and it is out of our control. However, we do retain a high level of control over our body fat levels, anyone can become reasonably lean, drop a size and be “fit for fashion.”
