“Scott, I am looking for a weight training system that will improve my physique with short sessions. What can you suggest for me since I am over 40 years old?”
I highly suggest the Mechanical Advantage Training System to peak fat burning hormones and muscle fiber stimulation with training sessions that are 30 minutes or less three times per week. Short rest periods between phases of the set create a greater release of natural growth hormone which is very potent for fat burning. Starting a set with the weakest grip and finishing with the strongest grip is a method that increases the total time under tension for a set which correlates to improve physique characteristics. The greater your effort output, the faster your physique will improve!
Weight Training Is Critical for Fat Burning
Do not buy into myths that “cardio” is the solution to get lean or get toned (what on earth does toned mean?) Weight training three times per week with a high-density approach and Fat Burning Intervals twice per week is the ticket to a great physique when the correct nutrition and recovery protocols are in place. Keep in mind that every pound of lean muscle burns a significant amount of calories on a daily basis even at rest.
Are you Training Hard or Just Going Through the Motions?
Making incremental improvements from week to week creates the fastest possible improvements to your physique. However there is a catch, training hard is a relative term and it requires an escalating level of effort. The weight loads should be challenging enough to leave you completing the sets close to failure with proper form. The unfortunate reality is that a majority of people I observe in gyms apply 75% effort when they need to be above 90% to maximize their success. You will never know what you are truly capable of achieving unless you are willing to safely push your limits!
No one lives life to the fullest without great body composition and quality of life! Take the right approach with intense exercise and a diet full of organically raised foods!
Why Men and Women Over 40 Struggling with Fat Loss
Many women over 40 struggle with body fat loss due a loss of lean muscle over time which reduces the size of their calorie burning engine. While hormonal changes can play a role, a lack of resistance training and under eating are leading causes of muscle loss for both men and women. Less muscle also leads to a deteriorating appearance and often times poor posture which is huge indicator of rapid aging.
