Get Abs for Your 50th
Some people say that mid life crisis looms at that age. Don't fall victim to such a crisis, and overcome whatever negative emotion you may come to expect as a result of turning 50.
February 9, 2011 (Newswire.com) - Like most folks who are turning 50 getting abs isn't exactly on their priority list. Forget getting abs, working towards general fitness and health is even further from mind. I want to challenge you today to think the opposite. I want you to imagine yourself healthy and fit being able to play and keep up with the energy levels of your grand children.Getting abs isn't exactly number one on the priority list of people who are turning 50. General fitness and health all seem to be a foreign concept for most folks. Today I dare you to think the opposite. So imagine yourself healthy and fit being able to play and keep up with the energy levels of your grand children.
It is a rare sight to see a guy of 50 with a solid six pack. In most cases we tend to see 50 year olds who are pot bellied, sagged faced with strips of white hair and with no or little stamina to save their life. Majority are just consumed with work that general fitness and exercise is a no go. I don't know about you but all work and no exercise tends to dampen our zeal in life.
I have titled this article "get abs for your 50th" because this sets yourself up for what could be the most ultimate physical challenge you will face in a while. The fact that this challenge seems impossible is exactly why you need to do it. 30 years plus of all work and no exercise is not a positive way to greet half a century.
For most folks at that age mid life crisis looms. So why not have a plan in place to overcome whatever negative emotion you may come to expect as a result of turning 50.
Begin with a clear goal in mind. Bear in mind that this goal will be the motivating factor that will thrust you into a better lifestyle. A clear goal will enable you to stay on track!!
Before you design your workout schedule ensure that your diet is sorted first. Remember abs is made in the kitchen and not the gym. Think 6 small portion meals a day, lean meat, protein, dairy, lots of water. Overall, get a well balanced diet plan that leans more towards fat loss.
Schedule an exercise routine that is both fun and fits in with your lifestyle. According to your goal you should have an idea of the best exercises you will need to undertake. If you goal is to lose fat and get abs you should be looking at full body workouts, interval training, circuits training and hill sprints. On days off the pool, hiking and brisk walks are great
Find an event that you can work towards performing in. One of the most rewarding challenges to prepare yourself for at this age would be a triathlon. Your body fat index needs to drop down to 12% for men and 16% for women, in order for you to get abs.
Now Get Started and Stay Consistent. Changes will show if you remain dedicated and consistent, but be patient and don't be unrealistic with your expectations. For myself I am on my 17th week of training and I have dropped a little over 5 kgs and now have a four pack going. Without putting to much pressure on myself, I have taken my training in stride (3 times a week, 1 hour each) and so far so good.
Now that you have started the journey to healthy living you have the rest of your life to move towards bettering yourself. Nobody's perfect, so if you stumble don't be too hard on yourself just keep aiming to improve even if it's just a little. You can take time out too indulge in the unhealthy stuff once in a while. Just make sure to work it off in gym.So make it your goal to get abs before your 50th and reward yourself as well your family.
