Ok you forty plus enthusiast, still hammering away like you used to in your twenties and thirties?! Not getting the same results you used to even though you’re training the same way, perhaps even harder? Well guess what? There’s a reason for that.
As we age, our bodies become more sensitive to stress. Whether it’s in the form of physical, mental, emotional, or another type of stress, the body does not distinguish among the types. Stress is universal. If you’re currently physically stressing your body through exercise like you did in your twenties, then your body is not going to respond the same way as it did in the past.
For example, you may experience certain side effects of overtraining such as weight gain, chronic injury and most commonly, poor quality of sleep and sleep deprivation. Don’t fear you forty plus die hard! You can still hang with the young bucks, but you must do it in a different way.
By training smarter, not harder and putting emphasis on proper recovery and nutrition makes all the difference in the world. Using devices such as HRV (Heart Rate Variability) and sleep trackers are a great way to hold yourself accountable. Understanding these approaches and practicing these techniques on a consistent basis is where most will fail, causing an endless cycle of overtraining. PJ 40 will teach you proper programming and training techniques so you can recover adequately to obtain your ideal conditioning, body composition and that lean physic you are so desperately trying to attain.
