OVER 40 ALPHA TRANSFORMATION:

LAWRENCE BACKMAN

 

The spotlight is on our 44-year-old American brother who has strengthened his shoulders and prevented injuries.  

Aside from that, he has established a healthy lifestyle which is a health-promoting behavior pattern that has given him a robust core. 

Read the story of our Alpha brother, Lawrence Backman!

Before Over 40 Alpha

 

“Before O40A, I considered myself skinny fat.

I didn't have any muscle mass and just wasn't in good shape.

I'm a tennis player, and serving had become a painful experience.

I had torn the labrum in my left shoulder and had that surgically repaired.

I was about a year post-surgery and felt like the PT that I had done was helpful, but I still wasn't very strong in my shoulder.

And to top it off… I had recently strained my other shoulder from a heavy lift, and signs were good that I potentially had a minor labrum tear there now.

I really didn't want to do surgery again (recovery was soooo hard!) so I thought that improving my strength in the shoulder, and all areas, could be enough to offset the tear and potentially be symptom-free.”

 

After the Over 40 Alpha

 

​​“My results have been very good in this program.

I have lost any bit of fat on my body I had and my waist size has gone down from a 33 to a 31.

I joined to help strengthen my shoulders to avoid surgery and it totally worked!

The shoulder strength that I gained through this program, and overall conditioning helped alleviate that pain and I could again serve a tennis ball without wincing in pain.

My body is much stronger and I feel much more balanced overall.

I feel healthy and fit, and I love the new routine.

I have also really liked the approach to nutrition.

I didn't do any of the supplements (wanted to go all natural, so it was sustainable for me), but just keeping my foods to the go-to's has been easy and effective.

I can't think about a meal any longer without thinking in my head – protein, complex carbs, veggies, fats.

It's ingrained now and really helps ensure balanced plates which is key.

This program has given me a great routine and pace throughout the week.

I'm at a place now, where I'm almost sad on rest days because I know how good my body feels after doing a workout.

I crave pushing myself hard.

I love the ab and core workouts and they have really worked well – my core feels rock solid and it brings about a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction with the level of fitness I've achieved.”

 

 

Get it Done!

You won't regret it.

The other thing I learned thru this journey, was to ease into the new phases.

There were probably 3 different times, where about week 2 I tweaked a muscle and had to delay the phase for a week, to recover.

And this was especially crucial, regarding leg exercises – to protect my knees.

I would encourage men to take it slow when you start ramping up weight for squats and lunges. I feel like even just doing bodyweight squats and lunges are super effective and can build good lean muscle.”
