A Life regimenDr. Jeffry Life's prescription for a healthy and buff midlife and beyond:
Workout: Life recommends at least three weight and four cardio sessions per week: "Do some exercise you enjoy doing -- not something that you dread -- then push it. Work really hard at finding your comfort zone -- and stay out of it." Do aerobics with hard intervals, and push weights to failure (the point where you can push no more). If any exercise gets too easy, up the intensity and the weight; the harder you work, the more fat you burn all day long. (Body fat is taboo in Life's regimen because adipose tissue contains an enzyme, aromatase, that can break down testosterone.) Merely walking and doing a few reps won't cut it. Finally, to stay excited, try something new once in a while -- like karate.
