How To Get Fit Over 40 (Tips For Men)

Just because you’re approaching your 40’s, 50’s and 60’s doesn’t mean it’s too late to get fit, build muscle, chisel out a lean physique—or whatever other body shaping goal you have…

In fact, your best years can be ahead of you… And they will be if you put the following fit over 40 tips into practice… 

Check them out… 

Change Your Mindset

In order to show off your best body to date, you first need to realize and remind yourself, that it’s not too late to make it happen… 

You have to believe that you can achieve the physique you desire. Because if you don’t believe it’ll happen—it won’t…

And that’s not some “rah-rah,” motivational phrase to get you hyped up. It’s actually true…

If you don’t believe you can get a rock hard physique over-40, you won’t dedicate yourself to the process as much as you otherwise could. Or you’ll question whether or not training and eating right is “worth it”. 

Your success all starts here. Because as long as you stay positive and believe you can achieve your ideal physique, then you won’t stop until you get it.   

Surround Yourself With Positive People

At this age, we know what it’s like to have toxic relationships in our lives, don’t we? 

And most of us have probably cut ties with those people—and discovered that we’re better off for it…

As an older guy, there will be plenty of buddies and colleagues that chuckle and say, “You’re too old. It’s too late for you.” But it’s not. Don’t listen to them. See… 

You may need to move away from negative voices for a while. But more importantly, to get fit over 40, you want to surround yourself with positive people… Especially other men over 40 who are dead set on getting fit, too.

And that’s why, if you aren’t an active member in the Anabolic Tribe Facebook Group, you should become one today…

The Anabolic Tribe is a brotherhood of exceptional men who want to maximize every area of their lives. And you’re one of them… 

Be active in The Anabolic Tribe Facebook Group and you’ll be inspired, motivated and encouraged daily to reach the rock hard physique you’re working for. 

Progress Pictures

Progress is a great motivator. And it’ll keep you excited and encouraged throughout your fit over 40 journey… But here’s the catch: you actually need to see your progress in order to be motivated by it. Here’s what I mean… 

No one sees your body more than yourself. And during the process of transforming your body into the physique you crave, sometimes, it can be hard to notice the results because you forget what your body looked like when you first started the program

And without your “before body” in mind, it can be hard to celebrate the incredible changes you’re making in the mirror. Because you just don’t see them like you should…    

But that’s why it’s critical for you to take progress photos beginning on day one of your fit over 40 transformation… Because then you can constantly look back at where you were, and be motivated by where you are…

But don’t stop with your “before” photo. Take progress pictures every month, or even every week. This way you’ll visibly see fat falling off your body. And ripped muscle taking its place.  

If you’ve already started your fit over 40 transformation, but haven’t taken a “day one” photo, take a picture today that you can look back on to measure your progress starting now. For even more encouragement and motivation, share your progress pictures with the Anabolic Tribe Facebook Group…

Not only will you have a group of like-minded and ambitious guys cheering you on themselves, but your progress will inspire other members as well. 

Dialed In Nutrition

Nutrition is key to getting fit over 40

No matter what your fitness goal is, nutrition is going to be paramount in getting to wherever you want to be. For instance…

If you’re a lean guy already, and you want to put on some more muscle mass, then you’ll want to dial in your nutrition daily by eating a lot of food… But not just any food you can find. Instead, you’ll pack your plate with nutrient dense foods—and load up on lean protein, gluten-free carbohydrates and essential fats… 

If you include those “big 3” macros in every meal, you’ll successfully bulk up with high-quality muscle…

On the other end of the spectrum, if you feel like you have a good muscular foundation, are strong and have some muscle that’s covered in fat, you’ll dial in your nutrition to a steady caloric deficit…

One that won’t sacrifice muscle mass and is packed with plenty of testosterone-boosting foods to keep your muscle-building hormones working at their best… (Check out some of the best of them HERE)

Really, you’ll eat the same nutrient dense foods that you would if you were bulking—lean protein, gluten-free carbs and essential fats. You’ll just eat less of them…

This way, you’ll melt away fat without losing an ounce of hard-earned muscle mass that you’ve worked hard to gain.   

Anabolic Cardio 

All cardio isn’t created equally…

Traditional cardio, like running a few miles, or steady-state bike rides actually suck your body dry of testosterone and cause you to store fat instead of build muscle…

Which is why you need something different to get fit over 40… You need Anabolic Cardio.

Anabolic Cardio is short and intense cardio workouts that give you a massive hormone boost. And with this testosterone boost, your body will build muscle and burn fat more easily around the clock. Plus…

Short and explosive cardio workouts increase your metabolism, not only during your workout and shortly after your workout—but even for a full 24-hours after you finish your workout. This metabolism boost makes fat melt off your body around the clock, too… Even when you’re at work, playing with your kids or spending time with your wife

As a bonus to the fat-burning benefits of anabolic cardio, thanks to the testosterone response that it triggers, this explosive form of cardio will also help you maintain muscle mass—something that no other form of cardio can do. 

TriCon Training

TriCon Training is the only training method of its kind created for men over 40 to get the physique you crave safely, powerfully and in the shortest amount of time possible

TriCon Training stands for “Triple Contraction Training” and eliminates the traditional “point A to point B” style of weight/bodyweight training that you’re used to. During each movement of this training, your muscles learn to do all the work… And are practically forced into growth that the younger guys know nothing about…

I’ve written an article that describes the unique TriCon training style in depth HERE

During TriCon Training, you use your mind-muscle connection to engage with each of the three types of contractions for maximal results. Plus, TriCon training also decreases the amount of repetitions you perform in any given workout which protects your joints, prevents inflammation and helps you to train smarter as a man over 40. 

On top of that, each TriCon exercise creates natural lactic acid production in your muscles. This doesn’t only give you a massive pump during your workout, but also triggers an unbeatable testosterone boost that accelerates muscle growth and fat loss… 

And will cause your body to burn fat and build muscle even 72-hours after you’ve finished your workout. 

As a man over 40, TriCon Training is a revolutionary method of getting the physique you desire that you don’t want to miss out on. Check out TriCon Training in my Ripped After 40 program HERE.
