When most people join the gym, they follow a generic program that consists of compound exercises, like the bench press, squats, and deadlifts, with some isolation exercises sprinkled in for other muscle groups.
During this initial period, most people will experience their fastest rate of muscle growth because their body is more responsive to weight training due to the novel stimulus.
Thus, it’s easy to believe that these exercises are the Holy Grail of Gains, and they will always be sufficient to maximize muscle growth.
After all, why fix something that isn’t broken, right? Well, it’s not that simple, especially as you grow older and need to consider other variables that your younger self didn’t have to.
Perhaps you could bench 3x a week when you were in your twenties, but now your shoulder doesn’t feel great if you try to bench that often.
Here’s the thing. Most men feel stiffness in their bodies as they age, particularly in certain areas like the lower back, hamstrings, and shoulders.
And most of them assume they can stretch their way out of the stiffness and tight muscles. However, stretching only provides temporary relief.
You need to address the root cause: you need to strengthen your body, improve your mobility, or change your exercise selection to improve your recovery and stay injury free.
In this video, I’m going to share with you 5 solid exercises that you might want to stop doing as you get older. Some of these may surprise you, but by the end of the video, you’ll be able to draw your own conclusions and decide what’s right for you.

Do You Want To Know What The Best Beauty Secret Is?
Improper beauty regimens can negatively affect you, both physically and emotionally. You need to do a lot of basic research so that you don’t burn, harm, or irritate your hair, skin, or nails when trying to beautify yourself. There are some tips listed below to help you get started with a beauty regimen that is right for you.
If you have striking brown eyes, you can play them up by adding eyeshadow, liner, and mascara in colors that are especially flattering for your eye color. Look for rich, matte shadows in shades of green, copper, and blue. These colors add depth and intensity to your eye color, especially when topped with a few coats of navy mascara.
For your eyes, emphasize grays and blues by using copper, apricot and gold eyeshadow colors. Choose eyeliners and mascaras in dark brown with deep purple, brick or maroon highlights. These colors can help blues stand out more.
Before using a blow dryer, spray a bit of ‘hot spray’ onto your damp hair. All major grocery stores carry this item in their beauty sections. The purpose of the product is to stop split ends occurring in the hair, and will also speed up the drying time. It also usually smells awesome and helps your hair stay moisturized.
You can apply makeup to your wide-set eyes in a way that is very flattering and can make the eyes appear closer together. First, apply a dark brown or navy eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes, then blend it with a sponge. Apply your eyeshadow at the inner corners, then blend well outward.
Use a deep conditioner at least once a week for extra soft and healthy hair. Pick one day of the week to take a bath and read a magazine or listen to music while the deep conditioner soaks into your hair before rinsing. Many hair product lines include a matching deep conditioner.
For beautiful hair, add oil to your hair care routine. You can make your hair shinier, less frizzy, and mask graying by adding a few drops of oil to your hair every morning. Good oils to use are castor, rosemary, or sesame oils. All of them are cost effective and widely available.
Do not pick or squeeze at your face. A simple beauty rule is to keep your hands off of your face, except to clean or moisturize. You run the risk of causing scars when you pick at your face. You can also transfer oil and dirt onto your face when you are touching it.
Add plenty of fruits and vegetables to your diet to make your skin more beautiful. Eating more fruits and vegetables have benefits to every aspect of your health, not just to your skin. Raw food can not just make your skin beautiful and youthful, it can extend your life by years.
To reduce red tones in your skin, use a green based concealer. Because green and red are opposite from each other on the color wheel, the green tones in the concealer will cancel out any red tones in your skin. However, keep in mind that you only need to use a very small amount of concealer to counteract the red. If you use too much you can wind up looking green instead.
Consider using a purple eye shadow, rather than black or brown. Black and brown can be boring. Purple can really make your eyes pop. Purple eyeshadow is not as bold as you might think. From a distance, it will look like a black or a brown. Even so, it will give your eyes a little extra something.
To get even more mileage out of your favorite eye gel, keep it in the refrigerator! The ingredients in eye gel work hard to restore and protect the delicate skin around your eyes and keeping it cold enhances the refreshment factor ten fold! The cold will also work immediately to reduce that dreadful puffiness!
Smoking, besides being linked to a myriad of health problems, also has an extremely negative affect on the way you look. One of the best beauty tips is to never smoke a cigarette in your life, and if you are a smoker, stop immediately. Smoking prematurely ages the skin and causes wrinkles, it makes acne worse and it turns your teeth yellow.
If you have ever been dancing in a club, you know that your skin can get a little shiny. To reduce the shine, use the cheap toilet paper as a blotter. Believe it or not, the rough and coarse paper is a great blotter for oily skin! Try using the toilet paper to blot your skin and in no time your skin will be oil free.
There are many factors that are attributed to beauty. The one factor that stands out the most is skin care. Many people, particularly men, may overlook this fact that simple care can be taken to make drastic changes to their appearance.
For a manicure that lasts all week, use a high-quality topcoat. Applying topcoat directly after the manicure will seal it, and then you can touch it up with thin coats daily to keep the manicure good for even longer. Using a quality top coat will help your manicure last longer.
You can save a lot of money by trimming your own bangs at home. First, make sure you have the proper scissors. Spend the money for a small pair of good haircutting scissors. Trim your bangs dry. How to trim them will depend on your hair type, but most people do best by dividing the bangs into three sections, holding the hair up in a twist, and taking small diagonal snips so that the cuts aren’t straight. Drop the twist, see how you look, and repeat until it’s short enough for your liking.
Improper beauty regimens can be very troublesome, but with some practice, inspiration, and technique, you can make it work for you. It just takes research of the basics and practice to create a beauty regimen that you can easily follow and apply. Do yourself a favor, and try using the above tips to help create your own personal beauty regimen.
