For all you folks over 45 years old, this ain't high school anymore. I'm talking about the health and fitness world my friend.
What I mean is, when I talk to people over 45 years old and ask them about working out and being fit and healthy, they almost always regurgitate stuff they did in high school. They talk about the workouts they did in high school and how "that's the way to do it" type of stuff. When the conversation moves forward, especially if they were high school football players, they know all about working out and being healthy. BUT, they NEVER talk about the "now". They hardly ever discuss what type of workouts they are doing now. Do you know why? Because they don't know how to do it now!
Let's be honest here, high school was a LONG time ago. Just about everything in your life has changed, right? Do you live in the same place? Are you dating (married) to the same person? Do you have kids/grandkids now? How about work? Are you working in the same place you did in high school? Chances are, the answers to these questions are "no". So, if everything has changed, why do you think you should work out the same way you did back then?
I'll tell you why, because you don't know! "But Andrew, I know how, I did it before." You're right, you did workout before. You also used to work at a fast food joint. You also used to go on dates. You also used to not have kids. Are you getting this? Are you picking up what I'm throwing down?
I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm saying that LIFE HAPPENED. I'm saying things are NOT the same in your life, so quit treating your body like it hasn't changed, because it has. Don't believe me? Look at your high school picture then look in the mirror, is it the same? Nuff said.
Oh sure, you macho guys are poo-poo this off, but that's ok. Chances are, you wouldn't be following me anyway, which is fine. I know I sometime tick people off, but who doesn't?
I'm also sure that some of you macho guys think I'm some sort of quack and don't know what I'm talking about, which is fine. It's none of my business what you think of me, and I get that and I'm fine with it.
BUT, for those who are still reading this and saying, "you know what Andrew, this is making sense. I get what you're saying," we are on the same page, and that's awesome!
If this is making sense to you, then maybe something else will as well. I put together a little video series for the people over 45 years old who want to live a fit and healthy lifestyle. If you fall in this category, I encourage you to watch this quick introductory video HERE.
