Help! Im a 53 year old and while Ive improved my fitness level immensely over the 8 months using knowledge gained from MDA/PB, Stronglifts 5x5, and a variety of fitness activities. Despite all this my wife made a comment recently about my "man-boobs" and my soft physique. She threw me a bone and said my arms looked good but everything else needs work. I love her and appreciate the feedback/motivation and I'm discouraged about not being able to pack on and maintain more muscle mass. I need some suggestions from someone in my age group who has broken the barrier. Please do not reply if your 45 years or younger. The body does weird things at my age and ability to respond to muscle building workouts seems to be one of them. Currently I do a Strong-lifts 5x5 routine for one hour 3 times per week and the rest of the time I"m either running, hiking or cycling. I lift as heavy as possible but not to total exhaustion, but I work hard. I suspect that diet may be the culprit as I find it difficult to pack on big protein meals other than Chicken constantly and on some days I eat only two meals and graze the rest of the time. Any serious recommendations for me to really pack on a strong, muscled physique that can be maintained? I work hard and want to show off the results. Don't we all?
