In this blog post, I want to tell you about my experience in building muscle in my 30s. It was a long process but I’m happy that now I can share some useful information with you. Before I get into that topic, if you have any questions or comments, drop them down below. The best topic ideas I turn into blog posts like this.
Let’s get started! A real good friend of mine, somebody I’ve known for many years, on internet forums said he went to the doctor for reason X, but the conversation happened. So the doctor told him:
“You can’t build muscle over the age of 30, you can only add fat.”
Now, obviously, we all know, this is nonsense. I don’t want to turn this into the type of video, where we just skewer all doctors and label them as ignorant, but one thing I want everybody to understand. When it comes to any person, giving you fitness advice, nutrition advice, or something similar that is to analyze if they’re staying in their lane. Remember, that they are experts. Just because a doctor says, this doesn’t mean, he’s good or bad at what he does. He could be a brain cancer surgeon for all. I know, he could be one of the best in the world, but he could go out and smoke during the break. Just remember, that doctors have specialties. Generally, doctors are, not the best at giving nutrition advice. They don’t receive a lot of that in school. When it comes to fitness advice and lifting advice a lot of times, we receive a lot of bad information from doctors.
I hate to make blanket statements. I’m not making a blanket statement, but when it comes to fitness, I’m gonna repeat this. When it comes to doctors, you got to ask what their specialty is. Are they staying in their lane? If somebody tells you something, that is outside their area of specialty, you have to pretty much just treat it, like an opinion of anybody else, like your brother. Some guy at the gym. It’s no different than some guy at the gym, saying you can’t build muscle over the age of 30. You can only build fat. So, if you get any information like this, in life, at a gym, from a doctor, just try to filter it properly.
Honestly, stuff like this people, respect people, respect folks in the position of power. You know, sometimes we have a tendency to believe them on things like this. It’s really sad. Honestly, this is one of the worst pieces of advice, I’ve ever heard in my life. It just so happens, to come out of the mouth of a doctor and God knows, what his specialty is. I’m sure, he’s pretty good at it, but to speak to the comment. You can you build muscle over the age of 30. Absolutely all we need to do is look at the body. Work in bodybuilding and powerlifting. We see a lot of guys start to peak in their mid-30s and really become their best. At 35 to 45 I became my strongest. You know, I like 45 or 46. My biggest at 45 or 46.
So, anyway, we have it. If I posted this on social media, I probably, get a hundred comments about how all doctors are bad or doctors don’t know what they’re talking about. Again, just remember, when you receive information from anyone, that’s outside their area of specialty, you might want to filter it. Against the opinions of others or maybe get a second opinion. That’s a ‘quack statement.
