How To Build Muscle ( 5 HABIT CHANGES) Often when we want to achieve a new goal, a new result, we look for a new program, a new set of routines or habits to implement. But too often we don’t assess habits we may currently have that we actually need to STOP doing. And many of these old habits even sneak into our new programming ultimately holding us back from our new goal. Many of these habits we hold on to because they worked for our previous goals - say for weight loss or fat loss. But when our focus changes, our habits need to shift as well. And to gain muscle we can’t repeat the same habits that worked for weight loss. Gaining muscle means embracing habit changes. We have to remember that what worked for one goal may not work for another and could even hinder us from seeing results. That’s why I wanted to share 5 habits many of us excuse that we actually need to STOP doing if we want to gain more muscle.
Dang it unicorn girl. I now have to delete your subscription.
Cori I am 68 yrs old 5’4” and weigh 110 lbs. I have been lifting for over 25 yrs and up until I had a total hysterectomy in 2020 was muscular. Since the hysterectomy I cannot regain the muscle I had even though I lift as much as before. I’ve lost so much elasticity in my skin. I will say I do not eat a clean diet. Actually never have. Is there a way to regain the muscle I once had?
What meal tracker are you using? I was using MyFitness Pal, but now there’s a charge to use the scanning feature.
Do you have a day of eating video?
Love your tops by the way... Where do you buy them please?
So let’s say you are continually hitting PRs week in and week out, but you don’t see any additional muscle development. What do you then?
Do you have online training?
I am 66yrs old, 5ft. and at age 52 I fell off a bike broke my hand HEALED IT without MD and crushed my carpal tunnel (had surgery for that! 6 months later), I finished my menopause without any problems because I was fit, so yes it is important to have muscle mass for menopause and another big plus is you don't have many hot flashes, I didn't have any hot flashes at all. My strategy for getting fit was 3-2-1- rest. I biked, jogged and weight walked. I did this for a long time and even today at 66 I still do it but not as intense as before. I had a 6 pk. in my 50's and it wasn't all it was cracked up to be, it was the journey to get there that taught me DISCIPLINE which helped me later on in life when I had to help my husband cross over from terminal cancer, that was a BIGGER deal since I was married over 40 yrs.
Red meat is a carcinogen level 2, grill the meat and it is worse.
Great information. Thank you
I surf around youtube for advice and workout, ... always happy to come back to you for the accurate and real info. Thank you 😘
Great tips for this 52-year young viewer. How about a post of “BALANCE movements” (like the single leg RDL you showed). But would a SINGLE kettlebell be better as core deals with offset weights? (BK in hand opposite as straight leg).
Have you ever used a balance board?
Hi! Great info! After listening now I understand why I’ve gain 20 lbs over the last 5 years… during perimenopause and now I’m in full menopause. I used to be a runner for many many years.. and mostly HIIT workouts consistently. Currently I don’t run I feel it’s too hard on my body. I’ve tried weight training but i always stop because I gain more weight and bulk up when I do… I will now try to figure out my diet and macros!
Cori, what's the best useful macros app, please!? thx thx thx
do you live in the Mojave? I love the background
Thanks for this great information. It was an eye opener for me as I am in the menopausal phase and need to train differently.
My hardest point is building my upper body strength, back and arms.
Thanks Cori, love this advice. Your workout space is super cool
I’m in my early forties and have gained fat wear I never have had it before. I haven’t worked out for a decade but want to start lifting weights for my bone density and to get back in shape. Is it best to diet and lose the fat first or to jump into weight lifting? I’m 5’4” 119lbs. Growing up and all through my 20s and most of my 30s, I was naturally thin. Since I have never had to work very hard to maintain my muscle or physique before, I do not know where to start now.
