A new fitness book for men and women over forty from bestselling author and trainer Michael Matthews.

Is this a workout book that can make you look and feel like you’re twenty again in thirty days flat?


Is it a fitness book full of diet and exercise “hacks” and “shortcuts” for gaining lean muscle and melting belly fat faster than a sneeze in a cyclone?

Absolutely not.

But is it an exercise book (and nutrition book) that’ll guide you on how to eat and exercise to lose pounds of fat and gain eye-catching amounts of muscle definition and strength?


And faster than you probably think possible, no matter your age or abilities.

Because here’s the deal:

Muscle building and fat loss after forty aren’t nearly as complicated as you’ve been led to believe.

-You don’t need to: Obsess over “clean eating” and avoiding “bad” or “unhealthy” foods like sugar, meat, and bread. Some foods are just more nutritious than and should be eaten more frequently than others. That’s it.

-You don’t need to: Spend a couple of hours in the gym every day grinding through punishing strength training workouts. Sweating buckets, getting really sore, training until bone-tired…all wholly overrated for gaining lean muscle and strength.

-You don’t need to: Slog away on the treadmill. In fact, you don’t need to do any cardio exercise at all to shed ugly belly, hip, and thigh fat and even build your best body ever.

Those are just a few of myths that keep people over forty from ever achieving the lean, toned, and strong body they truly desire.

And Muscle for Life will teach you something that most of those men and women will never know:

How to transform your body while eating all the foods you like and doing just a few challenging (but not grueling) strength training workouts per week. Oh, and cardio exercise? Completely optional.

Here are just a few of the things you’ll discover inside this fitness book for men and women over forty:

-The biggest fitness myths and mistakes that keep people weak, overweight, and confused. For example, “calories are all that matters,” “carbs and sugars make you fat and unhealthy,” and “strength training makes women bulky.”

-The primary driver of muscle growth that forces your muscles to get fitter and stronger. And no, it has nothing to do with “muscle confusion,” “functional training,” or any other pseudoscientific fitness nonsense.

-How to create meal plans for losing fat and building muscle with all the foods you love so you never feel starved, deprived, or like you’re “on a diet” (and especially a “bodybuilding diet”).

-Twelve months of paint-by-numbers resistance training workouts for adding lean muscle definition to all of the right places on your body…in only 3-to-5 hours of strength training per week.

And that’s not all, either…

-360 peer-reviewed scientific studies support the Muscle for Life system of eating, exercising, and recovering for losing fat and gaining muscle and strength.

So, here’s the bottom line:

You can get a fit, lean, and strong body no matter your age or circumstances, and you can do it without following a bland diet and without living in the gym doing exhausting workouts you hate. And this book helps show you how.

Get your copy now, and start your journey to a fitter, leaner, and stronger you…for life!
