No Healthcare Program Will Save You From Yourself
Good health is not something that happens by chance, nor is it a genetic imperative. You are what you make of yourself.
Your physical activity, your diet and your lifestyle are determined by you... and are the determining factor in your health and fitness.
Bodybuilding is a way of life for many of us. We feel unfulfilled if we don't train on a regular basis.
We feel incomplete if we aren't making regular progress through increased weights, more repetitions and multiple sets. Exercise and fitness are an important part of our lives.
Most of us have abstained from all of the bad health practices in evidence all around us.
The habits and pressures of a modern society fill our environment; fast food, chemical laden prepared foods, caffeine and chemical filled "energy" drinks, sugary soft drinks and a polluted atmosphere.
It is really up to us to create and maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.
We remain athletically active; pumping iron, running, sports walking, swimming, bicycling, skiing, playing tennis and everything else that is fun and healthful. We eat healthy and minimize alcohol intake.
Still, we age.
Our fitness program must extend beyond our youthful active years.
As our body changes and hormone production begins to fall, we must adapt our program to meet the new paradigm so we are not limited by these changes in our physical functions.
Very few medicos are in the business of health, they are in the business of illness.
How many of us go to the doctor when we are not sick, but when are seeking greater health? There are a few medical organizations that are in the business of health, but they are the exception, not the rule.
The information we need for our continued health and fitness comes from those who have come down this path before us, those who have faced the challenges presented by building and maintaining their bodies for their entire lives.
As our metabolism slows down approaching middle age it is much harder to achieve the physical results we want from our diet and exercise.
It may be necessary to seek out natural supplementation to boost our metabolism. We should obtain professional advice on supplements.
The jury is still out on controversial bodybuilding supplements like the various forms of prohormones such as androstenedione.
Reportedly there have been serious side effects from the use of these precursors to anabolic steroids; hair loss, breast tissue growth, prostate enlargement to name a few.
In the USA, the FDA has classified prohormones in the same category as artificial steroids, thus they are illegal unless prescribed by an appropriate medical doctor.
Other supplements such as creatine monohydrate have not had the negative press (nor apparently the adverse side effects) as 'andro.'
Personally, I restrict my supplement intake to those that are natural and have been properly evaluated by medical authorities.
My twice-daily pill-dropping focuses on supplements that will protect and rehabilitate my joints, help increase my own production of hormones and assist in building lean muscle mass.
In summary, we have to be prepared for the changes that will take place in our bodies as we age.
We have to adapt our fitness and diet regimen and consider taking natural supplements to augment our decreasing production of hormones. It is possible to remain fit, healthy and active all of our lives.
