One of my styling tips, when we are out and about, even if it’s business or pleasure we have to coordinate! This looks simple, but it says a lot!! It’s clean, smart, and it says I’m going somewhere!
I believe that your closet should be well color coordinate. In the past I learned when you have your threads all over the place, you end up buying the same thing twice! This is why I keep my whites with the whites and the blues with the blues, … etc. So you will know exactly what you have in your closet, keep a well-organized closet!here!
Bathing soap, lotion, and cologne that compliments one another! Ladies love a good smelling man, not a man who smells like the gym! We all have different body odors. Finding the right soap with a good base moisturizer that leaves no residue, and a good body lotion that leaves the skin moisturized and not dried up!
It took me a minute to find my perfect scent that I want the ladies to smell, it’s light and not heavy. Use a good cologne that has a cigar scent. You always want to leave the room with a pleasant scent that people will remember you by “he always smells good!”
Men can still get in the best shape of their lives, even after age 50. So let’s face it; most men over 50 years old are in terrible shape. Years of physical neglect have taken their toll with weak, atrophied muscles, excess body fat, and unhealthy organs.
But here’s the good news; you can easily reverse this! In fact, men over 50 can get in the best shape of their entire lives with a very simple approach. Here are 5 steps to take to get on track for achieving a top level of health:
Get a physical
This is the standard operating procedure for anyone starting back into exercise, don’t skip this step.
Make an appointment to see your doctor, explain that you plan to get back into shape with moderate exercise. Order blood work and have your testosterone and your PSA levels checked. Have your prostate checked.
If your free testosterone is low, talk to your doctor about HRT (hormone replacement therapy).
The process is quick and easy, and you will have peace of mind that everything is in order physically.
Change your diet
We can’t emphasize it enough – you are what you eat. Changing your diet has two components, a) changing what you eat, and b) changing how much you eat.
The former is to ensure you get all of the proper macro and micro nutrients the body needs to function properly. This will likely include supplements.
The latter is to reduce calories so that you lose body fat. You will need to take in fewer calories than you expend to lose weight in the form of body fat.
Seriously consider hiring a nutritionist if you are unsure of your approach and are not willing to do the research.
Join a Gym
It takes a village to stay in shape. Actual research shows men who belong to a gym feel a sense of community and are much more likely to achieve their health and fitness goals by belonging to a gym.
This of course also gives you full access to all of the equipment needed for your exercise routine.
Hire a trainer
Chances are good that, if you’re a man over 50 and you’re out of shape, you either don’t know how to structure your workouts and/or what you used to know is antiquated and either ineffective or dangerous.
Hiring a personal trainer is simply one of the best investments you can ever make, returning the immeasurable benefits of health and fitness. Shop around and hire the most reputable trainer you can find, you will get what you pay for.
A great trainer listens to your goals, understands your body, and will put together a program just right for you. Additionally, your trainer becomes a key component in your accountability – it helps to have someone holding your feet to the fire on your goals.
Don’t quit, no matter what
Like everything in life, persistence is what gets it done. You will have days you want to quit. Don’t do it.
Simply take one day, one workout at a time, and do your best. Give your workouts the same priority you give to any other meeting. Sometimes you just have to say no to other options so you can say yes to your workouts.
Do these 5 steps and stick with it for at least 6 months, I guarantee you will see incredible results, and you’ll be on your way towards the best physical fitness in your entire life!
Looking good is not just about the hairstyle you have or the products you buy, fitness should be one of your top priorities going into 2019. Whether you’re a total newcomer, getting back into the swing of things after the festive period, or an experienced gym-goer, these Men’s Fitness New Year’s Resolutions will be a great guide to staying fit in 2019.
Set achievable goals
Simply put, not setting clear, attainable goals is the biggest mistake you can make when it comes to fitness. Forget getting abs in thirty days, or any promise of getting the ideal body by summer. A month or two down the line, you run the risk of being dissatisfied with your progress and abandoning the project altogether. Choose from the outset whether you’re looking to get stronger, get leaner, or lose weight. When setting your goals, it can help to have a vision of where you’d like to be in 12 months. However, especially as a beginner, you should be prepared to be flexible. As you gain experience and learn what you enjoy, your goals will naturally shift.
Our top tip: Take a picture of yourself before you begin your training program to keep track of your progress. Recreating the photo each month under the same conditions will ensure you are moving towards your goals.
Choose the right program for your goals
Picking a program can sometimes feel like navigating a minefield, but keeping your overall goal in mind will allow you to focus your attention on what’s important. It’s crucial, too, to avoid falling victim to the most common fitness myths. A good balance of cardiovascular and resistance training is of benefit to more or less everybody (and going for a jog won’t ruin your gains). Simply adjust the amount of attention you give to each based on your goals.
Our top tip: Personal training might be expensive, however, by paying for one session you can clear up any questions you have about the best exercises for you. Then, devise your own plan based on their recommendations.
Track your progress
Tying in closely with our first men’s fitness resolution – tracking your progress is absolutely key to ensuring you get the most out of your training. Unless your main goal is to lose weight, we suggest avoiding the weighing scales. Focus instead on body fat percentage, body part measurements, or even by how good you look in photographs. Improvements in performance are also extremely useful measures of progress. Make sure to record your results, and use these to create micro-targets which will help you stay on track.
Our top tip: Plan your workouts and record your results each time. Your aim should be to trend in the direction of your fitness goals – whether that’s running a faster mile, or bench pressing more weight. If you’re not happy with results over a 4 week period, it might be time to change up your routine.
Use your time wisely
This men’s fitness resolution might be the trickiest to get right – but when you do, the payoff can be huge. Spending all of your free time in the gym might be some people’s idea of fun, but there are few tricks to optimize your exercise that can make it much less time-consuming. Cycling, or, where possible, walking to work is not only a great way to keep fit but has been shown to boost cognition and mood in the morning. Cycling can also be a great time saver – for the most part, immune to traffic, you might be surprised to find cycling is often a quicker option than driving. Team sports are a smart choice too, as they allow you to combine seeing friends and getting fit at the same time.
We’ve all been there. You forget to take a packed lunch to work and end up making poor food choices that compromise your goals. Planning and preparing meals doesn’t only allow you to avoid eating the wrong things, however. Making sure you get a nutritious meal before a workout means you can maximize your performance and get better results at the gym.
Our top tip: Investing in a good amount of quality Tupperware will make your life much easier. Having a quick and easy go-to meal to fall back on when you’re pressed for time is useful too. Chinese style stir-fries, for example, are a great way to make sure you’re getting the right amount of protein, carbs, and vegetables.
