Fitness: What Men Can Learn from Women (Part 1 of 2)

by

FAVOR TO ASK OF WOMEN WHO SEE THIS…please share so your husbands, brothers and fathers can see it!

Last November, I wrote this “what men can learn from women” article with the intent to do a Part 2 at some point. That Part 2 is coming later this week. As background, and because many more people know about OlderBeast now compared to back then, I’m calling attention to the original article here.

And GUYS (of course) please check this out. I mean this seriously…at 40+, we’re smart to emulate some parts of women’s approach to fitness and health!

Packaged Fitness Programs? Why Guys Should Declare Independence.

Recently I’m swamped by ads for fitness programs promising unbelievable fast results, declaring themselves better than anything ever conceived before, or playing blatantly to a stereotype of male ego/insecurity.

I’ve done “programs.” The good ones are designed by smart people and will produce results if you’re diligent and intense in following them.

But what to do the day the program is over? Do it all over again?…For the rest of our lives?…Or go back to whatever our fitness regimens were before we started the program?

Motivation to Exercise: How I Discovered 3 Powerful New Sources

A lot of OlderBeast is about “what” (what workouts, what to eat or avoid), “why” (facts and logic behind recommendations) and “how” (tips and tricks to get started, adopt something new, or refine).

But there’s a bigger, capital-letters “WHY” underneath all this. All theoretical reasons and intellectual understanding aside, WHY do we actually get out of bed early on a cold morning and go for a run? Or squeeze out those last 5 push-ups? Or eat healthy today instead of waiting until tomorrow?

“WHY” is a question of underlying motivation, man. It’s the bedrock of OlderBeast resolve to “double down” on fitness, nutrition and Wellness for the second half of life. We began discussing motivation in this earlier post.

To further help you maintain and grow motivation, let’s discuss three additional, powerful motivators: gratitude, respect and obligation.

Digital Detox: Less Screen Time, More Body-and-Soul Time

No doubt, man – maintaining endurance, strength, flexibility, balance and exercise-supported peace-of-mind in the second half of our lives takes meaningful time. Four or more days per week.

Major challenge: “We never have enough time” is a truism that is nonetheless true. But if you’re determined to feel great, look good, be happy and live long…exercise needs to be a non-negotiable part of who you are.

So, what should you do?
