Normally, while an individual grows older, the natural anabolic hormones of the body start slowing down, which makes it more difficult to build up muscle mass. In spite of this, building muscle mass after 50 is achievable. Yet somehow, it is perhaps more advantageous to build muscle after 50 than when in your 20s or 30s. Any muscle build up within this period will help you maintain a healthy and energetic life.

  HOW TO GO ABOUT IT

1. Eat Healthy

What you eat is very important for your overall health as well as for building muscle after 50. A healthy diet helps you protect your bones, joint, and muscles.

Fruits and vegetables, lean proteins as well as low-fat proteins, cheese, milk or yogurt should be part of your daily diet. Try consuming more green leafy vegetables, fish, chicken, turkey, whole grains, nuts, etc. When cooking, make sure to use olive oil and it will allow you to get enough dietary fats. Drink plenty of water a day in order to keep your body hydrated.
