Part Two –30–39-year-olds #FitnessFridays with Dimitri Giankoulas
It all begins with weight, the scale, is the old way of tracking your gains and losses, it’s truly about body composition, a reflection of tissues in relation to each other, fat and lean muscle tissue. In your 30’s your body begins to change, add life, marriage, kids, work, stress and watch your fitness drop and be pushed to the end of the line, worst thing to do.
Food, find out what your body needs in nutrition, for example, Dimitri needs 1.5 grams of protein per his weight, multiply that 1.5 by your weight at 195 pounds and that’s 292 grams of protein per day with his training routine. It’s simple, you eat more than you burn, you gain weight. Opening a business is harder than tracking and training your body for life. Adaptation of the body is a normal process, as you train and reach your goals, your body will get smarter resulting in what got you to lose those first 20 pounds will not work trying to lose those next 20 pounds, you must shock the body to reach those new goals.
The biggest killer in North American is metabolic syndrome, a cluster of abdominal obesity, high cholesterol, insulin resistance, and high triglycerides. Avoid all of these and you will live a happy, healthy, quality life. If you don’t exercise, it will affect your sex drive, that is a fact, it will affect your testosterone levels, stress will contribute to lower libido. Alcohol increases in your 30’s because you want to celebrate life’s milestones and most men turn to beer and beer is the worst of the bunch.
It’s not about what the scale says, not about the weight you are today, it’s about Resting Heart Rate. Calculate your RHR by counting your beats per minute, subtract 70 which is the average, multiply that figure by 60 minutes in an hour, multiply that number by 24 hours in the day and you get your total beats per day, that is how many EXTRA heart beats per day, EXTRA work your heart has to work, these EXTRAS lead to health issues down the road.
