Exercise styles many people think of as the best ways to look younger, get leaner and more fit…are actually linked to accelerated aging, inflammation and chronic age-related diseases. (Plus, learn what you can do instead to slow the aging process down to a crawl — so you can burn off age-related weight..and look and feel YEARS younger!)

There’s a scientifically proven difference between chronological age and biological age. This means you can be 50 years old and biologically – at a cellular level – have the body of a 40 year old.

I know you want me to “get to the point” and just show you which 3 exercises to avoid, but you need to understand the reality of aging before you’ll know why these exercises are simply a waste of time:

The primary reason you need to avoid the exercises I’m about to show you is because they don’t do anything to slow your “biological age.”

The ONLY way your body knows “how old you are” is because of hormone signals that change over time. There are certain types of exercise that stimulate the release of youth hormones and slow down the aging process. While other types of exercise work in reverse (or don’t produce a noticeable change in youth hormone levels at all).

It’s vital to slow biological age because of how quickly it speeds up as you get older.

Because your biological age can accelerate at a pace of up to 6 months faster PER YEAR than chronological age, your body can be 43 as early as your 42nd birthday. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but for someone like me (turning 48 this year—it could mean having the body of a 52-year-old 4 years too soon).

That’s why I think ANY exercise that doesn’t boost youth hormones like HGH or Testosterone is a waste of time for men over 40.

In just a minute, I’m going to show you an exercise technique that slows biological aging to a crawl.

But first…

…I need to warn you:

What you are going to read next is going to go against everything you’ve ever heard before. But that’s because very few people actually know how to slow their aging process and very few people realize that chronological age and biological age are two different things.

Now, here are the 3 WORST mistakes you must AVOID if you want to slow the aging process and increase your metabolism to burn fat, boost youth hormone levels, having more energy & stamina, and build a lean, strong, healthy body:

1. Cardio

Too many people think that cardio is the answer to everything related to weight-loss and fat-loss. Yes, cardio can be helpful I done properly. I will show you how to do cardio properly in just a minute.

Cardio does nothing to slow the aging process. In fact, it does the exact opposite!

Cardio increases the aging process by breaking down muscle and increasing the production of free radicals. Long, steady-state cardio – the kind most recommended for weight loss – also decreases the production of youth enhancing hormones, slowing down your metabolism.

That’s not the worst part! Studies in the Journal of Applied Physiology and the European Heart Journal both show that cardio may also be associated with myocardial fibrosis. That’s thickening of heart valves. So if you’re concerned about heart health? Cardio isn’t the answer either.

And just for the record: No, I’ve “never seen a fat marathon runner” either. But, in my practice as a chiropractor, I did see many actually unhealthy runners. And I’ve seen plenty of runners who look a lot older than they actually are.

There’s a faster, more effective way to get lean and improve cardiovascular health and take off fat. It takes only 1/3 the time of a conventional cardio workout AND it also triggers the release of youth enhancing hormones (instead of those nasty free radicals that age you faster!
