Remember the days when it seemed like you could eat an entire pizza by yourself, down a few gallons of soda, lay on the couch and watch the entirety of Star Wars without getting off the couch for about 3 days, and STILL have abs? Well, bad news is, that might not be the case anymore, but the good news is, youth doesn’t have a monopoly on fitness. Working out and eating smarter can help you gain and/or maintain your muscle and physique at any age, with just a little more effort than it might’ve taken when you were a teenager.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) are important components in developing and preserving muscle by transporting glucose and amino acids to muscles while stimulating DNA. Unfortunately, as we age, an HGH & IGF-1 deficiency occurs from the pituitary gland, releasing less of both. This can mean lower performance, longer, slower recovery times, and a slower metabolism. However, Pure Vitality Deer Velvet Spray is here to help! The IGF-1 provided in the spray helps to increase strength and immunity, improve heart function, support healthy blood sugar levels, support healthy weight management by stimulating the metabolism, and help to repair damaged nerves, thereby decreasing recovery time. This spray has got you covered!
2. Pump Up The Protein
A great way to find out if you’re getting enough protein is the body weight equation (1). Take your body weight, divide it in half, and subtract 10. If you’re 150 lbs, divide that in half to get 75, then subtract 10 to get 65, and that is your number for how much protein you should be working into your diet throughout the course of the day. Additionally, the older you get, the higher quality the protein should be that you ingest in order to help slow muscle deterioration. This can look like grass-fed, organic, free-range, non-GMO meat, fish and eggs. If you’re a vegetarian, legumes and leafy greens are a great source of protein in addition to plant-based proteins on the market such as pea protein.

4. Rethink Your Exercise Routine
If you’re used to lifting heavy weights as a part of your workout regimine, you may want to switch things up-or rather lighten things up. Lifting heavy weights may cause you some more discomfort than it used to in the way of aches and pains as you age, but just because you’re not lifting heavy weight, doesn’t mean you can’t build some mean muscle. For example, if you’re doing 3 sets of 10 with a heavyweight, try doing 3 sets of 30 at a lesser weight instead. Switching to lighter weights while doing more reps, will be easier on your joints and keep you strong, and most importantly, injury-free.
Stretching may not seem directly related to strength training and building muscle, but pulling a muscle definitely is. Taking the time to properly stretch, even if you don’t plan to work out on a given day, will help you feel more limber going into the day and help prevent injury from exercise, or doing any everyday activity.
There are great days ahead and Pure Vitality wants to be there for all of them to help you achieve your fitness and overall health goals! You can check out a wide range of products in addition to Deer Velvet Spray and Deer Antler Velvet, HERE.
