Amazingly, it's not that long ago since no one was talking about ED (Erectile Dysfunction) in men. So what's changed?
One thing that's changed is the availability of statistics that show you that you're not alone.
Over 40% of males over 40 suffer from ED and a huge 70% of males over 70!
That's around 70 million American males who can't get it up, either some of the time or all of the time.
And remember, that's got nothing to do with a lack of desire. You could be looking at the image above and thinking "Wow, she wants me" but if your little head isn't aligned with your big head, there's little you can do about it.
If you are doing strength training at home, isolation training is important. Isolation training means that you are training just one specific muscle group and really focussing on that muscle during a particular exercise. An example of an isolation exercise is the bicep curl. This is a move that targets the biceps specifically and allows you to build muscle tears and metabolic stress in that region without it spilling out in other areas.
This can be contrasted with compound movements, such as the squat. The squat is not an isolation movement because it challenges too many muscle groups all at once. This works the quads, the calves, the hamstrings, the core and even the lower back to a degree. Put all this together and it is a ‘bigger’ exercise that challenges more muscles and one that is more akin to the way we move in the real world.
This was the result of a fitness level test that I did yesterday. And although it says I'm 74 years old, I'm only 3 days away from my 75th birthday, so it's reasonable to say I've knocked 43 years off my fitness age.
Here are 5 essential rules to follow with any anti aging workout routines:
Many questions are asked about shrimp and cholesterol online. In general, many people are concerned about cholesterol levels in foods such as meat, eggs and dairy products. In the case of the shrimp, the story about cholesterol is different, because a number of studies have shown that the high percentage of ‘good fats‘ in shrimp reduces the influence of cholesterol and that the vast majority of people can simply eat shrimps as part of a balanced diet.
Years ago shrimps were seen as a taboo for heart patients or for people who had to watch their cholesterol. This is because a small portion of, for example, 350 grams contains about 200 mg of cholesterol. For people at high risk of cardiovascular disease, this is their maximum recommended daily allowance. (For a healthy person, 300 mg is the recommended daily amount.)
Shrimp, however, have a very low total fat (about 1.5 grams per portion) and contain virtually no saturated fat. Saturated fat is known to be particularly harmful to the heart and blood vessels, partly because our body can efficiently convert it to LDL (or bad) cholesterol. But the LDL level is only a part of what affects your risk of cardiovascular disease.
It's a well known fact that we perceive the people we love as being younger than they actually are.
It can be a couple in their sixties or seventies who still see each other as the 20 somethings they married 40 years ago.
It can be a father who still sees his daughter as the twelve year old who needed his support, advice and protection when the rest of the world sees her as the successful attorney that she's become.
Interestingly, this only happens if the object of affection has maintained their health and appearance.
The rose colored lens doesn't work if the subject has got too fat or too wrinkly to fit inside it any more.
The takeaway is embracing a diet and exercise related lifestyle will keep those rose colored glasses firmly on your loved one's face!
A recent study by Duke University reported that the process of aging is highly variable among even young people in their teens, early twenties and early thirties.
Young people who are aging rapidly show early stages of physical and cognitive impairment, leading to early dementia symptoms.
This is why improving health through diet and exercise is important from a young age and throughout life. It improves the state of all our organs, leading to a positive imbalance between chronological and biological age.
Biological age is a measure of how quickly your body systems are declining.
Hair loss, or male pattern baldness is one of the early visible signs of aging in men.
There are several different approaches men take to try to combat the problem, including the totally ineffective and often laughable comb over, but there are only 3 effective solutions.

You'll often see them in the park working out with ropes, boxing gloves and fast body weight exercises. In the past, the general idea was that running in the park or on the treadmills for hours was the way to go when it came to losing weight.
Your skin is a clear indicator of your age.
If you ask someone to guess your age, it’s your skin that they’ll look at first to make their estimate.
Skin that looks like crepe paper, so called liver spots, sun damage, wrinkles and just generally unhealthy looking skin will all make you look older.
