Dear Over-40 body builder,
What if you held a formula to get your best body at over 40 years of age?
What if you had a unique strategy for getting stronger, leaner, and more muscular at so-called ‘middle age’ than you ever were in your youth?
And what if you could just KEEP… making that happen?
Would you tell your buddies about it? Or would you just tuck it away and keep it as your own secret formula? You know, just until you had a little head-start?
Better question: Does this sound too good to be true?
Believe me, it’s not.
My name is Scott Abbett. That’s me in the pics above. I was struggling as a young guy in the ‘before’ pic. As an older guy, I gain muscle and lose fat easily.
Would you like at least a hint as to why it’s NOT too good to be true?
Just look at all the young people inside any gym struggling to gain muscle, lose fat, get strong, and look good.
Some say there is no reason for a difference in workout methods between young and older trainees.
Maybe you’ve heard it on YouTube or seen it in an article… something like “The same workout routines that work for young people are what work for middle-aged people.”
Some “experts” are telling you that. Some other ones are telling you something different.
Which one is true?
Here’s an even better question…
Who said young people are training in a way that “WORKS?”
Let’s not talk here about simple fat loss. That happens with ANY program that makes you eat fewer calories than you’re burning.
… That’s simple; there’s no trick to that. It just takes discipline.
Let’s talk about your muscle strength, size, and shape. THAT… is the stuff that puts contour on your body. That’s what gives you youthful shape.
That’s what boosts your metabolism so fat-burning is easier.
And THAT… is what you’ll lose as you age if you don’t prevent it.
‘Sarcopenia’ (age related muscle loss) is what creates a ‘pear shape’ to a body that was once youthfully athletic.
Increased body fat is partly to blame for that appearance. Lost muscle size is the other reason.
So with that in mind, let’s go back to our question: Who said young people are training in a way that ‘works’ for building muscle?
Take a look inside a lot of gyms. You’ll generally see two groups of people…
- Natural trainees… struggling to gain muscle.
- Steroid Cyclers… former strugglers who use drugs to stop their struggle.
How do you know who the steroid users are?
Just look for the guys with acne-covered shoulders and over-sized delts and traps. It’s the guys (and gals) who gain ten pounds of solid weight in a couple months.
But there’s a price to pay for that. When those people stop using drugs, they’ll lose much of their muscle.
… And the men using steroids run the risk of permanently damaging their testosterone production.
If you don’t want that, then you might find yourself in the first group… the natural people struggling to gain muscle.
Even the ‘20-somethings’ get frustrated. If they didn’t, steroid use would likely not be so common.
So if young people have trouble gaining muscle, where does that put YOU and ME, a couple of guys over 40?
You know it… in a world of time-wasting struggle if we don’t do something VERY differently.
