Supplements and Rountines
Let me try this again at the correct board.
What do I have to look forward too coming upon my 40s?

Any of you guys supplementing with your physical fitness?
Any of you Baws over 30 starting testosterone?
How Helpful are these amazon reviews, because everyone I read IFIMO. (I Feel I am Missing Out).
If so what do you find helps with Fat loss? Recovery/Soreness? Sleeping? Hunger Control? Endurance?
What is your routine?
Were you always muscular/athletic, fat, somewhere in the middle. ( whats your story)
What has been the biggest benefit?
What has been the biggest help?
How Long have you been in or at it?

re: Supplements and Rountines
Some on here are prescribed test.

Only supplements that are worth it IMO: protein, creatine, fish oil and maybe CLA. Try to be careful when buying supplements. It is an extremely predatory market with no regulation.

Fat Loss: eating in a calorie deficit is number one. You can try different things to get to a deficit like keto or intermittent fasting but fat loss, at the end of the day, is eating less than you burn.

Always make sure you’re getting enough sleep. It varies by person, but generally try to always get 7 hours in. The more the better.

I run linear progression programs, most of them are styled as “powerbuilding.” Based on the simple premise that if you get strong, you will look good.

Story: I am a naturally skinny guy. Before I started lifting, was 145 lbs at 5’10”. Started lifting and now I’m 170 with a pretty low body fat % and I’m also pretty damn strong for that size. Always was athletic, I was just small.

Biggest help is just realizing that you are what what you eat. Without diet, you’ll experience some changes in your body but you’ll never get over the mountain without eating right (unless you are just a generic freak).

Yes. Protein, creatine are gold standards. Figure out if you're deficient in anything else, if you are, take it.

Not me, but I know some here do.

Amazon...you get the wisdom of randos on the internet with very little way to distinguish credibility.

Diet.

quote:

Recovery/Soreness? Sleeping? Hunger Control? Endurance? 


Lotta questions. Properly planned diet and sleep hygiene go a long way.

quote:

What is your routine?


Westside based template. Not what I'd recommend for beginners, but I've been lifting a while.

Skinny. I was a D1 basketball walk on, where being skinny didn't hurt much. Adding size in a healthy way is always my challenge.

quote:

What has been the biggest benefit? 


It makes me feel like I'm still an athlete, and exercise has a ton of benefit.

quote:

What has been the biggest help? 


Figuring out what motivates me.

I got out of lifting in law school after college. About 27-28, I found powerlifting and strongman motivated me and have been at it ever since.

read the 3-4 star ratings, not the paid for 5 star reviews.

Fat loss and weight loss is a simple calculation Calories in need to be less than calories burned.

quote:

What is your routine?


work out some sort 6 days a week

Monday Tuesday: Cardio in the morning and weights at lunch

Wednesday just core during lunch

Tues Thurs: Cardio in the morning and weights at lunch

Saturday: Mid Morning long distance run, 4-5 miles at my pace (run walk if need be)

Sunday, meal prep and rest

quote:

Athletic but held body fat until i learned about phyiscal fitness and diet.

quote:

What has been the biggest benefit?


Mental Health for sure

quote:

What has been the biggest help?

Taking pictures of my body when i started and then the same pics every 2 weeks to see the progress. Also good music playlists have helped.

The older I get, the more time I have to spend warming up and recovering.

re: Supplements and Rountines
eat chicken and beef with a lot of green vegetables and a very small amount of sweet potatoes or rice for lunch and dinner.

Then for breakfast you eat a nice bowl of idk cottage cheese or a few hard boiled eggs since protein fills you up and keeps you full so you're not hungry.

Then everyday at least 1 time (but if you can do 2 times than do that) you cycle or run a few miles.

Then you lift weights for 1 hour maybe 1.5 hours depending on how long it takes you to figure out a routine or how the machines work.

if you don't know what to do, just look up push pull leg split schedule on google and do that one for the first 6 months and build the weight up slowly each week or 2 weeks.

That's pretty much it, don't stop with the winter weight thing(which is just weight but in fancy speak); Keep it going for as long as you want/can and become more ripped/bigger, whatever you want.

Cardio more, lift medium, less carb = ripped once you're already pretty buff.

cardio medium, lift a lot, more carbs = hulk

There is a lot of confusion around this because of all the saturation in the information section of bodybuilding and all the pay for my plan cause it's best guys sort of people.

Well i'm giving you this plan free and i don't want anything for it so use it, and grow stronger, keep it simple cause simple works.

weight is just simple intake and outtake and working out helps in building muscle or losing weight.

main thing is food and making sure you don't get tempted by sugary shite and the second thing is workout.

PS: sorry if this is a long post but maybe someone who didn't know this wanted to get into working out and now they have this info so it's not just for the OP.

re: Supplements and Rountines
no prob. other thing that helped. meditation.

started, and that became the high point of my day, besides watching NBA

Like your dreams, I started noticing things that seemed impossible.

all I had to do was focus on something and it would happen. Visualization- the idea of picturing something and then it comes true- is real.

I changed my personality, got healthier, even have started a new, very successful career.. so far.. although I might leave it and move to Chile.

anyways, I even visualized physical things and they showed up in my life. It made me healthier and healed injuries. Sounds like bull shite but it happened.

I look back on the person I was years ago and I'm very different, dude.

I love that person but there is barely any connection to who I am now. That was another lifetime and all the people that were once so important in my life might as well have died hundreds of years ago. They barely exist as memories.

but I'm unplugged from politics and will not bore you with that rant today
