Beyond 80: strength, muscle mass, and body-shaping for men and women.

Until not so long ago - around 1978 - - many exercise experts believed that building strength and muscle mass (not always one and the same) was impossible after the age of 50.
From 1980 on, Dr. Paul Ward, Olympic trainer, developed the Super Circuit exercise program that used the “1RM” (one repetition max) as a guideline to either lean (increase strength, no increase in muscle mass; preferred by women), or to build/increase muscle mass. For more details, see “LIFE-LONG HEALTH” at .
About Circuit Training, the exercise program in this book, Dr. Jack Wilmore of Texas University states: “The bottom line is that Circuit Training programs continue to be effective beyond wildest expectations in producing changes in aerobic fitness, strength, lean body mass and very positive changes in body composition.“
Also using the “1RM” as a guideline, Potsdam University researchers in Germany now showed that increasing strength and/or muscle mass has literally no age limit.
Previously - - in presentations at the A4M Congresses Orlando, 2011 and 2012 - - I presented documentation that exercise is an ESSENTIAL health practice, and how to use the “1RM” concept for optimum anti-aging and body-shaping; also discussed in chapter 3 in LIFE-LONG HEALTH.

Think that your body is too old, beyond repair? - - The excusionist's thinking! With the discovery of Nitric Oxide - NO - and with it being able to boost your body's capacity to exercise (observed by myself, and other fitness experts), we get another step closer to perfection. .
But there are even more key variables that can help: : Sleep balance, bio-identical hormone therapy (including testosterone for women), HGH, the new deer antler preparations ( - - ) that contain IGF-1, and more, and more.
