Pushing Plateaus: Performance Enhancing Supplements for Older AthletesOver time it becomes increasingly more difficult to grow muscle and decrease fat. The older we get the more our bones become porous, our testosterone levels drop and our recovery time increases. Lack of rest, decreased strength and fatigue can diminish all the hard work you put into the gym. In some cases, it may be beneficial to supplement high-performance ingredients to push through plateaus.
Take longer rests
Here are our top recommendations to push plateaus as an older athlete
Taking a longer rest can mean the difference between hitting your goal or an injury. In traditional strength training, you want to try to hit each muscle 2 times a week. Of course, this can be difficult because you should also try to give each compound movement at least 24 hours rest before training it again. As a general guideline, try training Monday/Thursday as high-resistance strength and Tuesday/Friday as endurance or cardiovascular conditioning.Take care of your Joints

This is why it is always important to have a serious and intentional warm-up and roll prior to exercise.
