When I was young, I was always kind of worried about getting old. I looked around and I never saw anyone over 30 that was in good shape. I was told that “father time” would eventually catch up with me and I would be overweight…all my other relatives put on weight like crazy once they reached their 30th birthday.
I Chose a Better Path…You Can To!
I’m now closing in on reaching the age of 40 and I’m displaying more muscle tone than ever. What is crazy is that I have better muscle tone now then I did when I was 25! How can that be? I have thought about this in detail and now I know exactly why this is happening.
The Great News About Getting Older
In my post, Muscle Tone VS Muscle Mass Workout Routines, I speak about working each body part often because if you contract a muscle often enough…it stays “partially contracted, even when you are completely relaxed”…this is what causes muscle tone.
Workout Consistently for 15+ Years and You Will See A New Level of Muscle Tone!
Imagine contracting a muscle tens of thousands of times over a 15 year period…the mind-to-muscle link becomes so strong in that muscle that you are certain to display a very high level of muscle tone! You will begin to see definition on body parts where you never did before. I can now see all 4 muscles in my quads…it only took 13 years of working out consistently for this to happen…LOL! You will be pleasantly surprised at how good your muscles begin to look as you age.
Why Aren’t There More Toned 40+ Year Olds?
The reason you don’t see more toned older people is that most people don’t workout for more than 1-5 years before becoming inactive. It is an attitude thing…people believe that there isn’t anything they can do about looking their age and putting on weight.
The Playing Field Clears Substantially, Once You Hit 35!
Most people begin working out in their late teens to early 20’s. About 1/2 of those people drop out their first year never to workout again. I would estimate that another 25-30 percent drop out before making it to their 5th year. By the time you reach the 10 year mark, I bet 95% of people have given up. If you are talking 15 years of consistently working out…I am almost certain than less than 2% of the population ever reaches that point in their lifetime.
Want to Be in Better Shape Than 98% of The People Your Age?
All it takes is a decision! Just decide you are going to workout for the rest of your life and follow through with it! It really is that simple. Don’t stress over getting older…look forward to it!
