50 plus health

Post by brooster »

Hey all
Being on the other side of 50 , I have been trying some health stuff.
I QUIT smoking about 9 yrs ago . Happy about that one. Not as active
as I could be, but work at a somewhat physical job. Gotta have my
three cups of coffee in the a.m. ,but drink green tea for the rest of
the day. (even though it gives me a gass problem). Multi vitamins,
vit c, e, omega 369......But still looking for the feeling good thing.
Would be nice to get a full nites sleep, and not wake up feeling
worse than when I went to bed.
What does everyone else do?

yo brooster

ya gotta booster your testosterone levels.

lift weights.
make muscle.
have (more) sex.

"[testosterone]..accelerates its decline after age 50.."

"..For men, testosterone levels play a key role in almost everything. Testosterone builds emotional well-being and self-confidence. It affects how fat, fit or strong you are. It governs your mood, and plays a part in how aggressive you feel...."

"..Not only does it affect the way you look, a low testosterone level also affects the way you feel. Because the human brain is filled with testosterone receptors (the parts of the brain that respond to testosterone), your mood is affected if testosterone levels drop too low..."

"..Testosterone is the super hormone in man responsible to a large degree for his sexuality and male characteristics. It is to a much lesser degree present in women. It plays a powerful role in muscle building and fat burning and, like growth hormone, declines in production with age. Testosterone levels fluctuate and can be increased by exercise providing over-training is not initiated and environmental variables are favorably controlled: fitness, nutrition and eating patterns, rest, sleep and emotional stress...."

"..For men with borderline low testosterone levels, the first step is to attempt to raise them without the use of drugs. Assuming your body functions normally, there is a an exciting body of evidence to show that it is possible to raise low testosterone levels safely and naturally — simply by making small changes to what you eat and how you exercise....."

"..Men who train regularly, stick with compound, multi-joint movements and short spurts of lifting between 45-60 minutes per session could increase testosterone levels by as much as forty percent or more. Examples of multi-joint exercises include squats, bench presses and similar movements where more than one joint is necessary to move weight resistance..."

You know what works wonders? Get a bicycle. Don't ride it to get in shape, though. Just ride it for fun, the way you did when you were a kid. It's a wonderfully freeing and fun way to go, and is highly addictive.
