Can a 43 year old man who has never worked out, gain muscle definition by following a weight lifting program?

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010 | Gain Weight Men

    Yes. With exercise, diet, and steroids anything is possible. Muscle definition is always possible, however, building muscle mass is not. Genetically, you may be predisposition to have small muscle definition.

    Wow you look much younger in your avatar… I’m sure you can gain muscle mass, and definition by starting a regular workout with freewieghts. The thing is that if people start when they are younger it’s more likely to become a habit. Just start with reasonable wieghts and work your way up. Just keep at it start with small amounts then steadily increase.

    After shattering both shoulderblades in front and one in back. I started lifting just the 11lb bar10 times, then after I got up to 50 reps I would add wieght. I did this until I could lift as much wieght as my cousin Chad, he was a couple years older than me and in my view the strongest person in the world! Next to my dad of course!! If people who lifted wieghts when they were younger quit they lose musce definition the same as anybody.

    There are some small factors like hormone production and whatnot that have a small factor. Though getting started now is better than giving up before you try.

    O I was 14 when my shoulders got broke.

    Of course you can!!! Anyone saying otherwise is illinformed about fitness. I have seen 45 year old guys start a weight training program and end up in front covers of mens health magazine.

    You will have to start slowly, and steadyly. But its easyly possible to gain just as much muscle as any teen, it will take time (6 months to a year) to be at your best level. And another year or so to start increasing in mucsle size.

    Having muscle definition is no problem, at 43 you are still a living thing! The body can progress upwards if you keep fit via Free wieghts and cardiovascular excersice (swimming).
    Start by lifting free weights doing sets 2 with 8-12 reps (you should choose a weight you can only lift 8-12 times in one go). But please read on weight training before you go ahead.

    And remember, dont try other peoples workouts that tehy show in magazines. They are usually useless. Because weight training is about discovering what your body gives results to. For example, i only have used 5kg weights for my shoulder exercises all this time and kept getting results, whilst my friends had to go up to 10kg and still hardly get results.

    Also you should not buy supplements other than protien creatine and Nitrix. All others at this stage are not gonna help you. You need to be in training for at least a year before they are worth your hard earned money. And do not take steriods. If you want to, then you should train for at least a year full time, before thinking about them, because you already need to be at your full potential to be able to get results from them, but i advise not to.

    Best of luck and keep your spirits high, motivation and consistency is the key to life and working out!
