Where did your physique go? If you’re 40 years of age or older, you probably feel as if your body doesn’t look or perform the way it used to. There’s a good chance this has something to do with
The Big Three age-related conditions.
- Andropause, and
- Age-associated fat gain.

The Big Three and get their physique back!
Facts about Sarcopenia
- Sarcopenia is also known as age-associated muscle loss.
- Observational studies reveal that a man’s muscle mass and strength peak between his teens and 30’s. Following this, both undergo a steady decline.
- The average man can lose up to 8% of his muscle mass per decade after age 40. Strength may drop even faster.
- By 2015, it has been estimated that over 100 million men will suffer from sarcopenia.
- Contributing factors: Anabolic resistance, low testosterone (andropause).
Facts about Andropause
- The chief androgen in men is testosterone.
- Andropause is also known as age-associated testosterone decline or deficiency.
- Between 35 and 40 years of age, men begin to experience a drop in circulating testosterone concentrations of approximately 0.8% per year. Free testosterone levels fall more rapidly, by 2-3% per year.
- Free testosterone is the fraction of circulating testosterone that is not bound to blood proteins. It is, therefore available, or
free, to produce physiological effects in the body. So, this is why free testosterone is considered to be so important.
- Symptoms of andropause can include deteriorations in energy, mood, libido, erectile performance, stamina, muscle mass, and strength.
- Contributing factors: Recent research suggests that andropause is not an inevitable consequence of aging. Contributing factors include excess body fat, stress, diabetes, and lack of exercise.
Facts about Age-Associated Fat Gain
- Starting as early as 30 years of age, an increase in fat mass (body fat) occurs in conjunction with muscle loss (sarcopenia).
- Contributing factors: Decreased levels of the main fat-burning enzymes, impaired thermogenesis, and decreased metabolic (calorie-burning) rate.
