It doesn’t matter how you feel!
If you are over 40, then you are an old dog…. at least that’s what your metabolism is saying.
Don’t even try to fool yourself. 40-year-old women might as well throw a funeral for their metabolism and give a farewell speech. Because that sucker is dead. If you are looking to revive it, then you better lace up those sneakers and get ready to work!
But first, ask yourself these questions…
- Do you think you should workout for 30, 45, or 60 minutes a day?
- Should you focus on cardio, weights, or both
- How many times should you eat each day?
- Is sleep important?
Now that you’ve gathered up all that new information, I urge you to throw it in the trash. I don’t care what you read. No-one and I mean no-one can tell you what works for you. It’s a fact that what works for one may not work for you.
Now let’s say you came across a trainer on the internet and he/she starts off their little sales pitch a little something like this…
Hi my name is scam artist,
I’m so excited to offer you a plan that is GUARANTEED to work. I don’t care if you are looking to lose 10 pounds to over a 100, I promise you will meet your goal. Just follow this SIMPLE plan and watch your weight FALL off.
I have three words for this message… FULL OF CRAP!
I am over 40, and the majority of my clients are as well. Losing weight and gaining muscle is complicated and not to mention down right frustrating. But the trick to getting an old gal back in the game is to try new things. Mix up your routine and see how cardio and/or weights work for you.
Then try introducing muscle confusion into your regimen. There are a variety of new things you can try, and you will find yourself being able to do things that you didn’t think was possible.
Proving to yourself that you can teach new tricks to an old gal.
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
