Once you hit your thirties, you will see that weight loss and recovery is not that easy as it used to be when you were on your twenties. When you age, your body will age too. However, this doesn’t meant that you couldn’t be fit in thirties, forties or even in your fifties! I think I am fitter and healthier than I was the year before and now I’m in my thirties..But of course there are certain factors you need to bear in mind when you workout as you get older. Below are some facts and tips how to stay healthy and young as you hit your thirties.
1.First let’s face it: your body will age. This means that your recovery is slower and it takes more time. All the more reason to invest in your recovery: get enough sleep, have adequate rest days and eat nutrient dense food. These three areas are the most important things to take care of if you want to develop and get fitter. I have noticed that especially taking more rest days than before is crucial for developing my aerobic endurance. Working out beyond your body’s limits with tight muscles won’t get you anywhere.
2. Muscle strength is correlated to how you age because you lose muscle mass the older you get. Luckily you can do something about it: you can increase your strength and build back muscle mass by lifting weights or doing full-body workouts. Want to try out my Workout Plans?
3. Your body will transform: your favourite pants may be tight in the waist but loose in the legs. This is true: one common sign of aging is that you will start to gain fat around your midsection. This happens when your metabolism slows down as you age. Also the muscle and bone loss will accompany aging. Your midsection will widen even more if you eat too much any food. There’s no getting around it: as you get older your daily caloric need decreases. If you are not active, you cannot eat the same amount of food as you ate when you were growing up without extra weight gain. Fortunately, with a smart diet, daily activity and regular sweaty sessions, you’ll be back in your pants!
4. It is in your thirties that you are the most prone to dark circles and heavy eye bags so in this age it is especially important to get enough sleep. Here are my tips how to improve your sleep.
