    How to Live Younger in 40 to 50 Age

    I seen most of people, they looks very old as compare to his Or her age. When they do anything activity they feel very tired and also boring.

    So I am thinking If my age will be 40-45 So i got same age issue, this is very bad when I feel like this.

    You can be in great shape at 40-45 if you want to be. Most people are lazy and eat garbage, so they look like garbage.

    Example: The wife and I went hiking Saturday. The sign at the trail head said to allow 1.5-2 hours to hike to the top. It was a constant climb from the base of the mountain. We made it in 1 hr 5 minutes. I'm 45, and she is 42. We also had our 8 yr old son with us who is in great shape.

    Physical decline in your 40s and 50s is heavily driven by diet, level of exercise, sleep, etc. as drkelly74 implied (of course, assuming you don't have some diagnosed health condition). Recovery time needed may be the only possibly significant factor that is different from someone in their 20s. Other than that, you can train hard and eat right all the same and get excellent results - it's totally in your control.

    I'm lucky in the sense I look young for my age (I'm approaching 40 but look like I'm late twenties / early thirties).

    I think it's partly genetic - I've know 25 year olds who look like they're 40.

    I also think smoking, drinking, sun bathing, taking drugs and eating crap will eventually take their toll and make you look older, and the vast majority of people do at least one of those things.

    I think in a way it might be easier in your 40's. In my late teens I used to work out but had no money for food (I relied on my parents for whatever I ate) and no car so I often walked for miles and miles every day which might not be what you need when trying to build muscle in a surplus.

    That's commitment right there!

    I was assuming all other things being equal, but having the knowledge and ability (financially) that often come with more time on this Earth to properly fuel your development can definitely make it easier.

    Personally, I haven't noticed any kind of age-related adverse effects in my training at 35 compared to, say, when I was 25. If anything, I'm doing better now than then. But then again, I now eat and train much more effectively than I did. That being said, not sure I can provide a meaningful comparison from personal experience. I'll check back when I'm 45 :-).

    I turned 45 on Monday of last week and have never looked better, felt better and have never been fitter than I am right now.

    I don't smoke, I don't drink alcohol and I have been playing around with vegetarianism for the last 6 weeks or so.

    It's all in how you take care of yourself w/a little help for genetics. I'm 48, my wife is 45 & we train 6 days a week, and we are still in the best shape of our lives!

    I have a lifelong friend, and we are both 62

    he smokes heavily, I don't smoke
    I work out, he doesn't
    I eat clean, he doesn't
    I drink occasionally, he drinks daily

    His father looks younger than him
    People think I'm much younger than him

    I love him, but he's gonna die early
    I don't necessarily agree with everything I say.

    My advice is that if it bothers you so much then it's time for you to stop thinking and start something.

    Being an old fart is a state of mind, not a biological age. The same is true in reverse - you must have known a very elderly relative/friend who had the outlook of a young and cheerful person.

    I don't know if Arnold Schwarzenegger was the first person to say this, but it's normally attributed to him...

    "Where the mind goes the body will follow"

    As corny and motivational BS speech as this all sounds, if you keep your attitude and mental outlook young and positive, that's what will deliver the results, the body will follow... mostly anyway
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
    Back on the diet :(

    Up until I was 35, I was a fat slob who never got off the couch. I had never played a sport, or went outside. I just sat on the couch playing video games.

    I got out and started running. Started losing weight. Got fast at running. Learned I could be competitive and at 42, I run a sub 20 minute 5K, run 50-60 miles a week, lift 3x a week, completed an Ironman, ran 5 marathons, qualified and ran the OCR World Championships and feel great. All after losing up to 100 pounds.

    I honestly felt run down a bit, but since lifting over the last two months I feel better than ever. In a couple of weeks, I will be attempting my 1st 100 mile run... Not bad for a 42 year old. MY 22 year old self would have never done any of this.
