consistancy is key
Beast adaptation is triggered by consistant muscular stimulus (usage). If your muscles are not stimulated consistantly they will atrophy. When you increase the stimulus, your body will respond and grow (hypertrophy). This process activates many youthful body processes. Consistancy will improve and conserve many abilities you thought were lost.more

Restore your Elder‑Beast
It's never to late to begin
If quality of life is important to you, no matter your current fitness status, make the decision to improve it. All of us were born completely depedent on others for all of our survival needs. The skills and systems needed for independence were learned through lifetime experiences, good and bad. Now that you are older, years of achievments and failures have changed your survival priorities. As adolesents, we instictively run and play to develop these systems and skills. As we age, our lives are subjected to a multitude of stresses (family, jobs, injuries, to name a few). To accomplish these many herculean tasks, we take the path of least resistance. Drive to close locations, use escalators, elevators, eat fast food, just to have enough time get things done. After all the chaos, we find ourselves, looking to escape it all. We find comfort in food, alcohol, tv, and a multitude of other diversions. So here you are, finally at a point you have managed all that is required to achieve and fail through lifes journey, and too sick and weak to even walk for more than a few blocks. Have faith, your body has the ability to restore many of these atrophied strengths.
Where to start
The first step is to decide to take your life back. Your mind assimilates images to create a "movie" to drive your subconscious to motivate and change. Everyone's movie is different, some want to enjoy athletic skills, enjoy hobbies, be active with extended family, others want to live, there are many scenarios. The main thing is to play your movie in your head over and over. You constantly reinforce behaviors that allow you to achieve the changes required. In most cases your current fitness level evolved over many years. It can be reversed but you must be patient, we are creatures of habit and our bodys are too.
Set achievable goals
Your fitness journey will be unique to only you. Begin with simple goals and build on them. Make yourself accountable to someone, whether it a friend, family member or fitness coach/mentor. When you achieve small goals, your success will give you the confidence to achieve more difficult challenges. Continual effort will produce results you probably believed to be impossible.
Healthy Body and Mind
The quality time I gain with my family, makes the work easy.
