NUTRITION AND EXERCISE FOR OLDER ADULTS
(Don’t forget, at AlamoShape we offer our training clients free measurements and nutrition support.)
I’ve mentioned before it’s not enough to workout, you need to support the muscle you are trying to build.
There’s a lot in this study, but the important takeaways for any exercising individual, but especially those 61 and older, is that in order to maximize your muscle growth and retention, you should exercise daily (especially resistance, i.e. weight training), consume between 1.6 and 2.2 gr of protein daily, with 30-40 grams of that in an individual meal, 3-4 times a day. That’s a tall order, but we can help you figure out how to do it, at no charge.
It is also recommended to consume 3-5 gr of creatine daily, and to keep your bodyfat down to an ideal level (high bodyfat levels are accompanied by inflammatory responses that make it harder to gain muscle.)
Finally, the research also provides recommendations for adequate vitamin D and Omega 3 Fatty acids.
