Building Strength After 40; Our Glorious Guide

People over the age of 40 working on their strength with light weights

Can you build strength after 40? Absolutely! 

Contrary to popular belief, aging doesn’t have to equate to physical weakness. At Progressive Health & Performance , our personal training programs specialize in helping older adults enhance their strength, overcome mobility issues, joint discomfort, and achieve overall fitness goals. Through consistent training and tailored programs, we enable individuals to not only regain strength, but improve it, even as they age. 

Building Strength at Any Age πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’Ό

Many people assume that strength naturally diminishes with age. While it’s true that physical decline is inevitable, it doesn’t mean you can’t improve overall fitness as you get older. In fact, regular training can lead to remarkable gains, even in older adults. By consistently challenging your body, you can preserve and even enhance your strength well into late life. Remember, if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. Starting a sedentary lifestyle or halting your training can result in rapid loss over time.

How Progressive Health & Performance Helps πŸƒ

We’ve partnered with 100’s of inactive individuals in the Murrieta and Temecula area who decided to take control of their health and fitness and we’ve seen amazing transformations. Even those in their 40s or older can experience rapid initial gains. Through our comprehensive training programs, tailored to individual needs, clients gradually develop increased strength and functional ability.

By training consistently throughout their lives, our clients maintain their capabilities and independence while others their age experience declines. We’ve seen individuals well over 70 achieve significant strength improvements and enhanced overall function. It’s never too late to start investing in your health and well-being (our oldest member is 91 years old)!

Three Secrets πŸ‘€

Consistency is Key:

  • Building strength requires consistent effort. Aim to train 2-4 times per week, ensuring you incorporate the right exercises (discussed below). Skipping workouts for an extended period will lead to loss of progress. Stay committed to your training routine to continually improve. Our personal training team becomes your personal accountability team to walk along side you.

Proper Technique and Progressive Overload:

  • Effective strength training is a delicate balance of stress and recovery. It’s important to avoid doing too much or too little. Additionally, performing the same exercises repeatedly can diminish their impact. Introduce variety into your routine and embrace progressive overload, gradually increasing the challenge to ensure ongoing progress. Our team of professional coaches at Progressive Health & Performance will guide you every step of the way, ensuring proper form and technique.

Optimize Your Nutrition:

  • Fueling your body with the right nutrients is vital for strength gains. Protein, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats all play essential roles in your body’s ability to become stronger. Our expert coaches can provide personalized guidance on optimizing your nutrition to support your journey effectively.

Unlock Your Strength Potential πŸ”“

Embarking on a fitness journey yields noticeable changes in strength, particularly during the initial stages. As your body awakens and establishes stronger connections between the brain and muscles, you’ll experience rapid strength improvements. With continued training and proper nutrition, further changes will become evident. Clothes will fit differently, movement will become easier and more enjoyable, and you may even develop a lean and fit physique. Don’t worry about appearing bulky; muscle gains occur gradually, resulting in a fit and strong physique that suits your goal
