Athletes in their 40s relentlessly pushing to achieve their goals can come up against obstacles related to their age. These can include having difficulty increasing strength and endurance, and finding it harder to recover from exercise. Changes in body composition, muscle mass, range of motion, flexibility, exercise endurance and aerobic capacity are fairly common to this group.
Age-related muscle loss can impact not only muscle mass, but also an athlete's strength and recovery. As we age, metabolism may also begin to slow and the body can become less efficient at absorbing key nutrients - including protein. That's why pushing performance can be much more difficult for aging athletes.
Optimum Nutrition's GOLD STANDARD FIT 40 product line is specifically designed to meet the needs of the aging athlete. It features a Muscle Recovery Protein that contains 30 grams of protein along with twice the amount of the BCAA Leucine to help support muscle protein synthesis. There's a stimulant-free Training and Performance Booster which can be used pre- and intra-workout to help support endurance, performance and strength, helping the aging athlete push harder and longer in the gym. The GOLD STANDARD FIT 40 line also includes an Active Joint Health product with UC-II Collagen and Vitamin C to help support collagen synthesis and joint health.
Optimum Nutrition GOLD STANDARD FIT 40 products were all formulated for healthy active aging adults seeking high-quality products to support performance as they age.
