  • I am 4l years old and wish to obtain a hard body. My weight now is 170.

    Mike H., From: KS :: I am 4l years old and wish to obtain a hard body. My weight now is 170 lbs. and ht. is 5 foot 9 1/2 inches. Please advise. Is the fact that I am older going to make it more difficult. thanks.

    First of all, it is not too late to begin an exercise program. Although fitness levels are easier to reach and maintain in our 40's if we have been fit and athletic when we were young, beginning a fitness program at any age shows results. As far as a "hard body" is concerned, it depends on how dedicated we are to our goals, and what we consider hard. Good results can be made at your age. The best way to approach the task is to attack it from several angles. Diet should be cleaned up of its fat, salt, and sugar content. Fresh vegetables, fruit, and whole grains should start to become a mainstay. Protein sources should be from lean meats, skinless chicken, and fish. Snack foods and alcohol should be limited. Your exercise program should have both cardiovascular and weight training components. If you are not currently in shape, start slowly, both with cardiovascular and weight movements, and make progress as your body allows you. Don't try to push too hard, especially when you are sore or your joints ache. Give yourself time to heal from the activity. Pace yourself with small goals and you will realize after awhile that you have indeed become a "hard body". We are currently producing programs which will be available through this site to help you achieve your fitness goals. Good luck.

    That's it for this time,
