I’ve noticed a number of recent threads with emphasis on the unique needs of over 40 lifters. As a young 44 year old male I’m interested in learning what routines (EDT, HST, Renegade, etc.) the over 40 crowd has used and which one’s have generated the best results. I’m also curious as to what diet and supplements have contributed to your success.
I’ll get the thread started and remember the more detail the better. As far as hypertrophy I’ve had the best results so far with EDT. I did the intro EDT program over a month ago and saw these results. Started at 5’9", 172, 15% bf, 34.5" waist, 13 7/8" arms (no laughing), 38.5" chest, 22" thigh. After 3 weeks still 5’9", 169, 13%bf, 34" waist, 14 3/8 arms, 39" chest, 22.5" thigh. Calories at 2,400 with a macro 50p/30c/20f. Supplements: Tribex, Myostat (I’ve taken Myostat for 4 months and really wondering if it’s worth it, comments?), Multi Vitamin, Flax oil, Low carb Grow, Surge, Creatine.
I liked EDT for it’s simplicity, the challenge, seems to burn fat better than any other workout I’ve done, increase size for relatively short cycle and it’s fun. I haven’t done that many strength programs (low reps)so I’m hoping some of you will post a strenght program that worked well for you.
Thanks in advance for your contributions!
