How to lose fat and build muscle over 40 without a gym

People over 40 naturally lose 3% of muscle mass each year. You can either accept it or fight it!

I’ve chosen to fight it with vengeance.

If you want to learn how to build strength and muscle over 40 without expensive equipment and gym membership you came to the right place.

Calisthenics is a form of resistance training where you use your own body as the weight you are lifting.

In standard weight lifting, you progress by adding another plate at the end of the bar. In calisthenics, you progress by using a longer lever.

I started when I was 46 years old. I was able to lose 20 lbs of excess fat and build 9 lbs of lean muscle mass in the first two years.

I had some previous experience with going to the gym and pushing weights. It never motivated me enough and the longest I was able to stick in the gym was 6 months.

Calisthenics was different. I fell in love with this style of working out. I find it challenging and motivating.

It’s like playing a live game where you always have one more level to master if you want to earn the prize. The form of the prize I’m talking about is the next cool skill you can do.

If you want to be able to do some cool skills like muscle ups, dragon flags, front and back levers, pistol squats, and handstands this is the perfect place to start your fitness journey.
