Next year I am turning 52. Sounds scary but when you look at all those women who have managed to build muscles in their 40s or 50s, you realize that you can do it, too. I would like to share everything I do to get my six pack back in the fastest possible time.
Couple of years ago I’ve been utilizing this program and it has been working ideally for me. It helps you burn fat and gain muscle mass at the same time. Here is my plan on building muscles for my 52nd birth day.
Detoxification balances the ph level of the blood to prevent health issues and strengthen immune system. It helps us clear the skin texture and allow the proper absorption of nutrients by every single cell.
Eating Plan to Gain Muscle for Women
1st meal – sometimes apples and if I have more time in the morning I will have a bowl of nutritious cereal
2nd meal – protein shake, row almond nuts or 2 eggs whites.
3rd meal – Your meal should include one of the following sources of amino acids: chicken breast, cottage cheese, fish or mozzarella slices. Your essential fats: Olives, avocado, olive oil. Vegetables should come from salad of tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage with carrots or green leaves with cucumbers and radishes.
4th meal - I will usually have a hand full amount of some raisins, almonds and a middle size of apple.
5th meal - It is a dinner time. You may repeat your lunch which is the 3rd meal or you can simply have a good green salad with tuna fish, olives and a bit of olive oil in it.
6th meal – This is the time when I get my pleasure of eating a bag of non salted, free of butter pop corn. It could be replaced with couple of almonds, as well.

Start by warming up your muscles and do strength training before your cardio. The total amount of time you are spending in the gym should be 1 hour.
Many women are jumping right away on the cardio machines and they are running forever. Cardio training isn’t the one which can improve that much your muscle definition. It is designed to train the heart muscle, so you can have stronger heart to deal with the rest of the exercise sessions.
You cardio training should last around 40 minutes. Do it 3 – 4 times a week and make sure that it is done after weight lifting to avoid tiredness.
Define which muscles you would like to work on and talk to your personal trainer about it. If you don’t have any professional trainer around try to work on different muscle groups every day.
Whether you are working on your abs, arms or any other part of your body spend about 20 minutes on them by using variety of motions each time. Make sure you are not repeating the same exercises every day. Your muscles are getting used to those motions and aren’t active enough for building new muscle fibers.
