Middle Age Meltdown – Somatopause

Middle Age Meltdown is a very real phenomena

Middle Age MeltdownHere are some steps you can take to help fight the battle.

Somatopause – This condition has been called the “middle-age spread,” and the “middle-age blimp-out.” Whatever its title is, this middle-age phenomena impacts 80 million baby-boomers in the U.S. and millions more across the globe.

Good News . . . there are two cures, one of which is absolutely free!

This condition has been called the middle-age spread, and the middle-age blimp-out. Whatever it s called, the middle-age somatopause impacts 80 million baby-boomers in the U.S. and millions more world wide.

Clinical Characteristics of Somatopause

  • Weight gain
  • Energy Loss
  • Skin wrinkling
  • Decreasing muscle
  • Loss of bone density
  • Increasing body fat (especially around the waist)

The Cause

The somatopause is directly related to the decline of HGH growth hormone produced by the body during aging. However, specific forms of exercise can increase HGH by 530%!

Celebrity Appearance Improving, Anti-Aging, Drug of Choice

It’s widely reported that several well-known actors take HGH growth hormone injections for its anti-aging, youth rejuvenating properties. HGH has been banned for athletes because of its ability to improve performance.

While there’s research to show serious side-effects are possible with this therapy, everyone knows instinctively — when you inject something into your bloodstream it doesn’t take a rocket science to figure there’s a price to pay in the long run.

There are two natural cures for the middle-age somatopause.
(And they don’t require drugs or needles)

:: HGH Supplementation
:: Anaerobic exercise

HGH growth hormone can be increased 530% with anaerobic exercise – the short-burst, get-you-out-of-breath quickly, sprinting types of exercise. You don’t have to spend all day in the gym, jog for hours, or starve yourself. But it does require high-intensity exercise for short periods.

Now, before you go out and run, cycle, or swim a few 100 meter sprints or power-walk some steep hills, it’s important to note that anaerobic exercise is the most productive form of exercise (from the HGH anti-aging standpoint), but it’s also the most dangerous.

Even young athletes need to warm-up, and progressively build intensity levels or risk pulling hamstrings, calf muscles, and Achilles tears.

Middle-age adults need to slowly ease into high-intensity anaerobic exercise. And for some reason, many of my X-jock friends believe that this warning does not apply to them. Even well-conditioned athletes, who can jog for miles, need a progressive, six to eight week buildup period.

Adults can successfully add anaerobic fitness training to their fitness program, but there needs to be a slow, progressive buildup period.

And physician clearance should be obtained before beginning any type of high-intensity training.
