    Cardio...Who's Doing it Over 40..???

    Don't think it's important or it takes away mass...it hurts my knees or don't have the Time..

    All nice excuses..But
    The Benifits above 40...45..and 50..are essential to long life...

    If I am unable to do any...within a month my markers climb fast..
    Just reviewed labs from the last two years..thanks Covid...but not eating properly and not able to stay on a solid routine with the gym...the numbers don't lie..

    For Me...
    What works is a low to moderate lifting routine with light cardio 2 to 3 times a wk...not only improves my numbers but state of mind and confidence...and with what's ahead..I need all I can get..

    I started around 31 getting serious about it all,with 2 small kids to raise on my own..Always stayed on the safe side..Started at 125lbs...Yeah I know(didn't know shit)..not much better now..Eat healthy and trained as life could allow..at 50...very stout..solid about 188-195..with a 32in waist..
    Then the rug got pulled....

    So,it happens..we get some curve balls...
    Cardio has put yrs back on my life...
    And it just might for You...

    I guess I can say its cardio, but we go for a walk every day, takes an hour, and that is walking fast, we walk the dog and he makes us keep up, he's on a mission.
    Its a very hilly, 1-hour course, certain parts of it, breathing rather heavily.

    Getting shitty and cold out now so will ump back to carsio inside now (treadmill and bike) which I only bought to use in the winter.

    At 52 I do cardio every day, I enjoy the revolving stair steps. Itís a great warm up too. Itís always more fun when there is a hottie next or in front of me!

    Iím 42. I do cardio at least 5 days a week, sometimes twice a day. Stationary bike or 45 minute walk. The walk is pretty intense because I have to keep up with my wife! Cardio doesnít hurt my gains and actually helps me squeeze out extra reps.

    44 and I do ZERO cardio. Only cardio I do is lifting intensely. High reps, moderate weight, barely a minute between sets. 40-50 minutes 5 times week.
