Men, as we age, we must maintain our Manhood. For some of us, we might have lost our Manhood along the way, and we need to regain it. Today is the day to begin doing certain things to increase your health, vitality, and Manhood wherever you are in life. You should give your best to yourself, your partner, your family, and whoever else is important to you. Be the man in their lives!
All About Strength, Bone Density, Muscle Mass, and Testosterone
As we age, our body begins to decline in certain areas. We lose muscle mass, bone density, and our body produces less testosterone than when we were younger. The best way to slow down this decline is through weight lifting.
Men must lift weights! Even though playing golf, riding a bike, stretching, and other forms of exercise, are all great activities, the addition of weight training is a must because of the previously mentioned reasons.
Whether you lift weights at home or at the local gym, this must become a weekly routine, so when selecting a gym, make it convenient to your home or office. Our brains try to come up with excuses not to exercise, so we want to remove the most common excuse of ‘we don’t have the time’ by finding a gym nearby.
I recommend ATL Fitness 24/7 if you have one close by. There are 7 locations in Atlanta.

Defend Yourself with Martial Arts After 50
It’s extremely important to be able to protect your family and yourself if necessary, in any sort of altercation. Own your Manhood, and give yourself a huge confidence boost, by adding martial arts to your weekly routine.
Self-defense is the primary focus taught in Gracie training, but you are also working on improving your fitness. Working with other men to improve your grasp of the different techniques is excellent exercise, highly competitive, and a bonding experience. I’ve formed some great friendships with the guys I train with.
What is Gracie Jiu-Jitsu?
The Gracie family’s Jiu-Jitsu is a BJJ (Brazilian) program that teaches self-defense classes. The 36 fundamental combative techniques are the foundation of GJJ classes. Each one is mastered through repetition, fight simulation, and focused sparring, in addition to learning over 600 techniques.
Furthermore, you are improving your flexibility, mobility, overall strength, and situational awareness. These are all essential parts of your Manhood. When choosing training classes, just like a gym, convenience is critical. Try out several Arts to determine which one is best for you, your body, and your fitness level.
What are the Benefits of Regular Blood Work?
It’s crucial to have your blood work checked frequently as you age. I usually have mine checked two or three times a year, but consult your physician for his or her suggestions. Early detection of problems is critical.
Regular blood work can help you catch issues such as high blood sugar, high blood pressure, low blood pressure or vitamin and mineral deficiencies. With these tests, you can also track changes in your bloodwork and catch them before they become serious issues.
PSA Levels and Prostate Cancer Screenings
For us older guys, we need to keep track of our PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels to detect warnings of prostate cancer. This can be done by getting a blood test or visiting your doctor if you experience symptoms such as difficulties urinating, blood in your urine, pain in your lower back or pain when you urinate.
When to Start Checking PSA Levels
If your PSA levels are elevated, your doctor might recommend a biopsy to determine if you have prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the most treatable forms of cancer, however, so don’t panic. Early detection is key, so if you’re over the age of 40, get that blood test!
Does Low Testosterone Cause Fatigue and Other Issues?
Have you ever had your testosterone level checked? If not, now is the time to do so. It is important to keep track of your levels throughout the year to make sure they stay within the normal range for your age. Low testosterone can lead to many health issues, including weight gain, low libido, and reduced strength and endurance.
Fortunately, with early detection and treatment, these issues can be avoided.
With aging, our body produces less and less of this crucial hormone. Discuss your levels with your physician and if your levels are low, you may be a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy.
Testosterone replacement therapy can help increase your muscle mass, bone density, energy, and stamina.This, in turn, will help you perform at your best in exercise, work, and bring your ‘A game’ to the bedroom.
