        …transforming your goals into legendary results.


Are you training for a purpose?  It’s easy to spot a baby boomer gym rat training for a purpose.  Intensity in training, weekly physique changes, positive attitude and a physical demeanor that screams, “winner,” provide a visual image of a lifter training for a purpose.


Richard and Diane present a list of obstacles that keep baby boomers from achieving physique goals.  To read our techniques that will let you train with a purpose, check out our latest Bodybuilding for Baby Boomers article on Bodybuilding.com.

Should you super-size your coffee?  While super-sized coffees and high-caffeine energy drinks will give a quick boost to your energy level, you will feel a decline just one hour later.  UCLA School of Medicine recommends no more than 250 mg of caffeine each day, or just one regular sized portion.

New techniques to correct presbyopia, the Greek word for “old sight.”  When the aging lens becomes rigid and less efficient with accommodating near and distant vision, most baby boomers turn to reading glasses.  A new option to correct presbyopia is a laser monovision procedure, where one eye is corrected for close up vision, leaving the other eye for distant vision.  The FDA recommends trying monovision with contact lenses before undergoing surgery to make sure you are able to adjust to monovision.

Yoga Journal preaches a similar message to our current “Training for a Purpose,” article.  Many of our baby boomer readers participate in this inherently individual practice.  The Yoga Journal states, “Like yoga, eating is a highly personal activity-you learn to adapt your needs to the many popular nutritional systems and diets.  Developing a mindful eating practice can provide a ground that truly supports and nurture your yoga.
