Muscle Building For Men Over 40: Episode 9 of the Fit Father Project Podcast

By: Dr. Anthony Balduzzi, NMD - Men's Health Doctor & Founder, The Fit Father Project & Fit Mother Project,


Episode 9 of the Fit Father Project Podcast is all about muscle building for men over 40!

There are many benefits that can come from building muscle in your 40s, 50s, and 60s, such as increasing testosterone levels, igniting your metabolism, and strengthening your body. 

Understanding the foundations of muscle building for men over 40 will help you to stay strong and healthy later in life, meaning that you will not fall into the ‘frail old man’ category as you get older.

Muscle building for men over 40 is all about consistency, so keep track of your weights, monitor your progress often by taking before and after pictures, and show up with a purpose for every workout.

What I have for you in this podcast episode will help you:

  • Match your training and recovery strategies to your body
  • Increase muscle mass and testosterone levels
  • Understand the training splits, sets, and reps you should use as you age
  • Create a nutrition plan that will help you gain muscle, not fat

If you want to get the most from your muscle-building efforts, and make a successful physique change no matter what age you are, listen to this episode, take some notes, and check out our Old School Muscle program!
