8 Benefits Of Muscle Mass That Have Nothing To Do With Your Appearance (Thread):

Muscle makes you look better.

Muscle makes you feel better.

Pretty obvious. But a lot of guys (particularly Men Over 40) seem to think that it's only about your appearance.

It's not.

If you want to live a long, strong, happy, disease-free life, muscle mass is going to be your best friend.

Most men don't even try to hold onto theirs as they age.

You've got to take a different path.

Here's 8 health-related reasons why:
1) A Higher Metabolism

With a higher calorie-burn, you're less likely to:

- Be overweight or obese
- Get diabetes
- Have poor heart health

And a whole host of other problems that the vast majority of people end up suffering.

2) Bone Health

With more muscle mass, comes better bone health (crucial in your older years).

With better bone health, comes lower risk of osteoporosis, falls, fractures, that common plague people as they age.

HUGE long-term benefits.

3) Better Posture

One of the greatest ways to improve your posture is to build muscle in your back and legs.


Are all ENORMOUSLY helpful for all this.

4) Higher Testosterone

I've said it before & I'll say it again:

Testosterone becomes more and more important every year beyond age 40. Get it right, and it bleeds into all your other areas of life.

The Bond program gives you the 'organic' strategies:…
5) Lower Anxiety

This is absolutely linked to higher testosterone.

But the very act of having more muscle is strongly correlated to having lower anxiety.

Being more muscular simply reduces your fear on a very primal level.

6) Improved Insulin Resistance

More muscle mass leads to better insulin resistance, plain and simple.

7) Increased Confidence

Confidence is one of those true, but largely unhelpful 'buzz words'.

What is confidence?

I would argue that it's when you feel strong/powerful. And it's much easier to feel this way when you ARE legitimately physically strong.

You're undermining yourself by remaining weak.

If you want to blast your bench well beyond 250+, and start deadlifting 400+...

WITHOUT gaining fat...

Then the Warrior Program is for you:…
8) Less Risk Of Mental Disease

Your risk of Alzheimer's in your later years plummets if you maintain your muscle mass.

As AJAC always said:

Mentality = Physicality.

And he's right - the two are hopelessly inter-twined.

You will:

- Gain more muscle
- Lose more fat
- Sky-rocket your energy
- Preserve your health
- Be more free
