New Sports Science Findings Allow Masters Athletes to 'Cheat' the Ageing Process - and Remain Competitive for Years to Come
Once upon a time, older sportsmen and women were a rare species indeed – and regarded as something of a curiosity.
How times have changed!
In rowing, cycling, running and many other sports, the fastest growing rates of participation are in the over-40s category. There have never been so many older athletes participating in sport.
And they’re not just there to make up the numbers – master athletes are in it to compete, to explore their physical limits, and to win!
Because thanks to recent discoveries in sports science, masters athletes can remain highly competitive for years to come – if they know the right way to train... to recover... and to avoid injury.
Yes, if you’re over 40 and looking to achieve new personal bests in your sport, there’s lots of good news. Apart from being a thoroughly healthy thing to do, the right kind of training balanced with optimum recovery can and will help to cheat the ageing process and perform well beyond the level that chronological age alone might lead you to expect.
Of course, as the years roll by, there are some inevitable physical and biochemical changes that take place in the sporting body. Because of this, when maximum performance is the goal, older athletes need to adopt a canny approach and train smart. And key to this is harnessing the latest sports science findings relating to older athletes.
Which is why my latest Peak Performance Special Report deals with this increasingly important issue.
