Young men in their 20's have the momentum of youth that allows them a certain leeway with not looking after themselves and their health too well. Even when they are doing as much as possible to damage it they can get away with it - for a time....
Then they reach their 30's and things change. Body fat is quietly being stockpiled, lean muscle tissue is being lost and strength and energy is declining slowly but surely. Most men are able to withstand any serious decline well into their 30's but come mid to late 30's and 40 and when a no exercise lifestyle has been working against your manliness it becomes impossible to ignore.
Most men will typically not acknowledge the slippery downhill slide of their body until they reach the 'big 4-0' when it whacks them in the face. But by then the physical deterioration has been gaining speed for the best part of a decade.
One of the changes is a decline of the male hormone testosterone. Healthy levels play a key role in almost everything - energy levels, emotional well-being, and affects how fat, fit, or strong a man is. This hormone is responsible for the maintenance of muscle tissue, bone and joint strength and promotes the circulation of blood, shunting life sustaining oxygen and nutrients to all cells and tissues.
The decline of this hormone is one of the primary causes of the visible and invisible signs of the aging process. From pot bellies, high blood pressure and loss of muscle tissue to disease symptoms such as heart disease. It can also mean metabolic disorders from the increased body fat levels and associated health risks all the way to a reduced quality of life. Even the onset of Alzheimer's disease has recently been linked to a lack of testosterone.
If you are a man and feel your manly testosterone levels are waning you can do so much to hold it off and increase your levels naturally. Just by getting yourself started on a proper strength training program and get your muscles strong will stimulate release of this powerful hormone that can rejuvenate you in every way.
Fatigue and a general lack of enthusiasm for life in general can be caused by poor nutrition and lack of muscular activity which reduces testosterone levels. Proper strength training exercise effects testosterone directly by stimulating the pituitary gland and once you get started on your program you will feel so much better. Having more strength and energy will give you a higher quality of life giving you back a 'zest for life'.
All you have to do is get yourself started on a proper program of strength training. Long slow recreational endurance type activities will not give you back your man hormone; only working your muscles properly will do it. Don't disrespect your body with poor food choices and a no exercise lifestyle - you are only hammering your manhood, vitality and ultimately your life. Get going and turn this around - today is good.
