By: The Beverly Advisor Team
Where did your physique go? If you’re 40 years of age or older, you probably feel as if your body doesn’t look or perform the way it used to. There’s a good chance this has something to do with “The Big Three” age-related condi-tions. These are:
- Age-associated fat gain.
Read on to learn about a proven stack that 40+ men are us-ing to conquer “The Big Three” and get their physique back!
Facts about Sarcopenia
- Sarcopenia is also known as age-associated muscle loss.
- Observational studies reveal that a man’s muscle mass and strength peak between his teens and 30s. Following this, both undergo a steady decline.
- The average man can lose up to 8% of his muscle mass per decade after age 40. Strength may drop even faster.
- By 2015, it has been estimated that over 100 million men will suffer from sarcopenia.
- Contributing factors: Anabolic resistance, low testosterone (andropause).
Facts about Andropause
- The chief androgen in men is testosterone.
- Andropause is also known as age-associated testoster-one decline or deficiency.
- Between 35 and 40 years of age, men begin to experi-ence a drop in circulating testosterone concentrations of approximately 0.8% per year. Free testosterone lev-els fall more rapidly, by 2-3% per year.
- Free testosterone is the fraction of circulating testoster-one that is not bound to blood proteins. It is therefore available, or “free”, to produce physiological effects in the body. This is why free testosterone is considered to be so important.
- Symptoms of andropause can include deteriorations in ener-gy, mood, libido, erectile performance, stamina, muscle mass and strength.
- Contributing factors: Recent research suggests that andro-pause is not an inevitable consequence of aging. Contributing factors include excess body fat, stress, diabetes, and lack of exercise.
Facts about Age-Associated Fat Gain
- Starting as early as 30 years of age, an increase in fat mass (body fat) occurs in conjunction with muscle loss (sarcope-nia).
- Contributing factors: Decreased levels of key fat-burning enzymes, impaired thermogenesis, and decreased metabolic (calorie-burning) rate.
The MATURE MUSCLE STACK:
Tackle "The Big Three" and get your physique back.
Stack Component #1:
UMP, or PROVOSYN
We all know that the combination of resistance exercise and protein is your most pow-erful weapon against sarcopenia. It triggers an anabolic response in your muscles that (when repeated) causes them to become bigger and stronger.
Research indicates that as you get older, your muscles’ ability to mount an anabolic response to resistance exercise and dietary protein be-comes blunted. Scientists refer to this as “ana-bolic resistance”.
Anabolic resistance can be at least partly over-come by regular consumption of high-quality protein that is rich in the amino acid leucine. MUSCLE PROVIDER, ULTIMATE MUSCLE PROTEIN (UMP), and PROVOSYN are high-quality protein supplements containing several grams of leucine per serving, plus every other amino acid required to build and repair muscle tissue. This makes them especially well-suited for men 40 years of age or older.
Usage tip: Enjoy a delicious shake made with 1 serving of your choice of Beverly proteins immediately after resistance exercise. Have a second serving 4-5 hours later to boost muscle anabolism again.
Stack Component #2:
MUSCLE SYNERGY (powder or tablets) contains multiple ingredients that act synergistically to help combat age-asso-ciated muscle and strength loss. One of these ingredients is HMB, a naturally occurring, clinically studied compound that has been shown to enhance the benefits of resistance exercise. HMB is believed to work by rebuilding muscle and alleviating or preventing muscle damage associated with ex-ercise, thereby shortening recovery time.
Usage tip: For maximum results, it is important that you take the full dosage recommended on the product label. Be sure to take at least one of your daily servings of MUSCLE SYNERGY before your workout.
Stack Component #3:
Testosterone exerts its physiological effects in the body by binding to androgen receptors. Androgen receptors are found in cells throughout the body, including skeletal muscle tissue.
QUADRACARN contains four types of carnitine. One of these has been found to increase androgen receptor levels in muscle tissue. With more androgen receptors present, your testosterone signaling strength is improved. This is expected to enhance the effects of resistance exercise and shorten recovery times.
QUADRACARN also supports fat-burning metabolism, circulation, and sexual performance, among other benefits.
Usage tip: Carnitine takes some time to accumulate in your body. Therefore it is important to take QUADRACARN every day, according to label directions. Don’t miss a dose.
Stack Component #4:
7-KETO MUSCLEAN helps the 40+ man conquer age-associated fat gain. The driving force of this formula is 7-Keto®. 7-Keto® is a clinically studied form of 7-keto-dehydroepiandrosterone, a natu-rally occurring substance that is usually abbreviated as “7-keto”.
By the time you reach 40, your production of 7-keto may have dropped by 40% and continues falling for the rest of your life. 7-Keto® helps restore youthful levels of 7-keto and is clinically proven to produce three times more weight loss than diet and exercise alone.
7-Keto® is thought to work by restoring levels of fat-burning enzymes, as well as thermogenesis and metabolic rate. It is supported by three clinical trials, all double-blind and placebo-controlled in design.
Usage tip: The clinical dose of 7-Keto® is achieved by taking two servings of 7-KETO MUSCLEAN daily. Follow label directions.
Stack Component #5:
When we think of muscle, we often forget that a good portion of muscle consists of connective tissue. In fact, every time you lift a load, your connective tissue bears the bulk of it. It’s no surprise that it undergoes serious wear and tear, particularly at age 40 and beyond.
JOINT CARE is a perfect addition to your Beverly MATURE MUSCLE STACK. It contains ingredients like boron, hyaluronic acid, MSM and glucosamine that work synergistically to support a healthy inflammatory response and provide relief from joint discomfort and stiffness.
Usage tip: For faster relief and results follow the “loading phase” as explained below.
HERE’S HOW TO GET THE MOST BENEFIT FROM THE MATURE MUSCLE STACK
- Combat AGE RELATED MUSCLE LOSS with protein and Muscle Synergy. Ideal times are:
* Breakfast or mid-morning UMP and/or Provosyn with one serving of Muscle Synergy.
* Immediately before training: 1 serving Muscle Synergy
* Immediately after training: 1 serving Muscle Provider (or UMP)
* 4-5 Hours after training: UMP and/or Provosyn
- Combat ANDROPAUSE with 2-3 servings of Quadracarn per day. Take 3 tablets twice daily on non-workout days, and 3 tablets three times daily on workout days. (One serving just prior to workout.)
- Combat AGE-ASSOCIATED FAT GAIN with 7-Keto MuscLean. Take one serving (3 capsules) in the morning and another pre-workout or in the afternoon.
- Combat Joint and Connective Tissue wear and tear with Joint Care. Start with a “loading phase” by taking 3 capsules, 4 times daily for 1 week; 3 capsules 3 times daily during week 2; and then 3 capsules twice daily with meals from week 3 on.
Full Body Routine for Older Newcomers
Here is a 2 or 3 day per week, whole body workout that provides a well-balanced pro-gram for 40 and older “newcomers” to start training and combat the “Big Three”! It is also great for anyone who is “getting back” into training after a prolonged lay-off.
Press (barbell or dumbells) 2 sets of 8-10 reps
Curls (barbell or dumbells) 2 sets of 8-10 reps
Bentover Row (barbell or dumbells) 2 sets of 8-10 reps
Squats (bodyweight if necessary to get the correct form), then add just the bar and slowly add weight each workout) 2x15
Bench Press 3x6-8
Sit ups (or Crunches) 1 set as many as you can do in good form
Leg Raise (or Knee Ups while hanging from chinning bar) 1 set as many as possible
If you don’t do Knee Ups, it is still beneficial to just hang from the bar to decompress your spine (and improve your grip) 1 set as long as you can hold on
Split Routine for Intermediates
At age 50 and up, we can all benefit from an “Intermediate” workout program
Squat 5x5 (2 warm-up sets, then 3 sets with working weight), in-crease weight by 5 lbs when you get 5 reps on all 3 “work sets”
Bench Press 5x5 (same as squat)
Bentover Rows (or better alter-natives are High Pulls or Power Cleans if you have the technique down) 5x5 (same progression as squat)
Calves and Abs 3x15 each
Press 5x5 (same as Squat)
Deadlift 5x5 (4 progressive warm-up sets starting with 60% of your work set poundage, and then add 10% each set; example for a 300x5 work set:: 180x5, 210x5, 240x5, 270x5, 300x5 (add 5 lbs whenever you get all 5 reps in good form)
Alternate the next 2 exercises:
Reverse Grip Pulldowns 5x8 (2 warm-up sets, then 3x8), (chins are better if you can get at least 8 reps on your 1st set)
DB Bench Press (same as pulldown)
Optional, this means that you can skip it without compromising results from this workout routine
Leg Press (or Front Squat) 2x12-15 after warm-ups
Alternate next 2 exercises:
Incline Press (BB or DB) 2x10-12
1-Arm DB Row 2x10-12
Alternate next 3 exercises:
DB Press 2x10-12
DB Curl 2x10-12
Close Grip Bench Press (or Dips) 2x10-12
Calves and Abs 2x20 each
