Muscle Building Mistakes Men Over 50 Make …
Guys…there are things that may not seem like a big deal, but here are muscle building mistakes men over 50 tend to make. Make sure to use the tips I am about to give you to optimize your muscle growth, instead of hurting it. Let’s get started with the tips in this video tutorial on muscle building mistakes men over 50 make.
Tip #1: UNDERTRAINING. You need to make sure that you are training hard enough. There needs to be enough intensity, and you need to push yourself. If you don’t push yourself hard enough, you are not going to see results.
Tip #2: NOT ENOUGH LEGS. You need to train your legs more, leg muscles make up 50% of the muscle mass in your body. When you work your legs, it sends messages to your brain to ramp up the production of testosterone. Testosterone is very important for building muscle, especially as you get older.
Tip #3: USING TOO MUCH WEIGHT. Make sure to leave your ego at the door. I know you want to lift heavy at the gym because it looks good and it is impressive. Well lifting really heaving is not the key to building muscle. When lifting heavy, you tend to use bad form. When using good form, you do a better job at focusing on the contractions in your muscles.
Tip #4: SIGNIFICANCE OF NUTRITION. Nutrition isn’t just food, it includes water as well. Water is important for you to lose weight and lose fat. Start off by trying to drink a gallon of water a day, and even with that you are going to see results. After that then focus on the food you are putting into your body. Also add intermittent fasting and even carb-cycling to get really good results.
Tip #5: WARMING UP. You need to make sure to get the blood flowing and your heart rate up before you start your workouts. Another important thing to do when warming up, is to add some resistance. Doing this will also help prevent injuries, which is key for you guys over 50.
