The Real almost 50 YEAR old DAD BOD

Chasing the ever popular Dad Bod

I hope that most of you realize that the bodies in magazines are touched up, using perfect lighting and make up to hide flaws and imperfections.  

Flaws and Imperfections that we all have.  The photos are usually of stunningly beautiful people in equally stunning backgrounds by amazing photographers who take 1000s of shots.

Chasing these types of things are generally not healthy, reachable goals for us mere mortals that hold full time jobs and can only exercise 5 times a week.  Sometimes squeezing in 30 minutes a day.

For the past two years I have worked really hard.   And I mean really hard on finding a fitter me.  I always liked looking at these individuals in my age bracket that are cut and have muscles for miles.

But let’s be realistic and not set ourselves up for failure either.  In those years I ran 3x minimum a week up to 25 to 30 kms.  I worked out 5x a week on top of that for usually an hour at a time.

I don’t want to toot my own horn, but they are crazy workouts.  Burpees, squats, pull ups, mountain climbers, v sits, weights,  you name it it’s in there.  Usually with no breaks between sets or reps, from one exercise to the next.

This is where I am, and I love it.  I am extremely happy with where I am.  I don’t have the time to workout with a personal trainer daily or sacrifice like body builders do.  There life revolves around these things.  They are awesome and unique individuals.

Also we are all vastly different. So set your expectations on the fitness goals you can reasonably accomplish.  This is what my almost 50 year old dad bod looks like.  You won’t look exactly like me, not that you want to lol, but to some, my body type will be exactly where you end up.  Love it, push it and enjoy it!  It’s all the wonderful you.
