3. Age is Just a number
The age of 40 or 50 years old may seem like dead or buried but Johnson says that “Your muscles are just getting started by then.”
“During your thirties, your muscles are fully mature and the muscle memory is improved. You’ll be able to achieve some incredible gains”, says The Rock.
Your champ, Dwayne Johnson, even at 44 years of age is living proof that age is just a number and how during this period you are able to get massive gains. During this age, your body has a great deal of strength and potential for growth that needs a little kick to burst and the only way to do so is to hit the gym.
Of course, during this age your bones and joint are vulnerable. So, you should develop a healthy workout routine.
4. Pedal to the Metal
“Go full hardcore, balls to the wall at the gym and leave it all there when you step out,” says Johnson. This gets even more important if you have limited time. Make every rep count at the gym.
You should set your workout goals first before paying your subscription at the gym. A study published in the International Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology tells that people who have specific goals are more likely to commit to and work harder as compared to those who don’t.
Always develop long-term goals. There is no short-term game at the gym. The truth here is that it takes enough time and hard work to get those cuts.
5. Wanna Cheat? Cheat Big
The Rock says, “On my cheat days, I used to go full crazy eating pizza, brownies, pancakes and whatever, as much as I could eat and still felt absolutely okay.”
That doesn’t mean that you should go insane on your cheat days. Remember, if Johnson has bigger cheat days, his workouts are beyond your imagination. However, there must a cheat day twice or three times a month as different studies show that high caloric meals increase the production of leptin in the body that regulates energy balance by hindering your hunger and increasing the metabolic rate for 24 hours.
