Advanced Bodybuilding Strategies For Men Over 40

I'll never be in the ranks of the top bodybuilders but I love talking to them and finding out what they do differently from the rest of us. Now that I'm in my fifties I get a lot of inspiration from the guys who still workout for three to four hours a day in the gym and are ripped as well as buffed in their fifties and sixties.

These guys are not steroid monsters but they are tremendous. They have a lot to offer the guy who trains regularly but not to the level that they do. If you are over 40 and trying to stay in shape, you know how hard it is to do so if genetics is not on your side. If you are someone who is used to working with the large weight for a while and now find that they are too dangerous for your routines without help, you might need to consider doing what the big guys do.

Because they train long and hard, they will cover a lot of territory in four hours. Having mastered the basic exercises, they know what machines and exercises work effectively for their body. They know what their chest needs to bulk up fast they how much water to drink and how much rest is needed for effective recovery and muscle growth. They are familiar with pre and post workout nutrients that kick their metabolic rate into high gear.

Here are a few ideas you can adopt for your workout and health regimen even if you aren't a massive bodybuilding master. Like any exercise program, be sure to consult a physician before making significant changes to your diet and exercise program.

Here's a workout routine that's short and sweet that can be done on any schedule:

As for when to train each body part, you can stick with a 3-day or 4-day split as outlined in the Intermediate-chapter, or go to a 5-day or even 6-day split. Personally, I prefer a 5-day split over the course of a week as outlined below:
