Have you heard the phrase that 40's are the new 30's? It's true, for most things.
The idea is by the time you're 40, you'll have a steady career which you have enjoyed and are good at, have a stable family life, growing children, are still in good health, and can generally take a little more time to yourself to enjoy life. Yes, forties do seem to be the new thirties indeed.
The only major concern to really watch out for, that might start to be declining, instead of improving, is your health and your waistline.
Unfortunately, the more you work, the more financial stability you have, and as your body naturally ages, it is perfectly natural to notice a general decline in your health, energy, and stamina.
The good news is that you don't have to just roll over and accept this as your fate. When you better understand what is going on, you will see how easy it can be, with just a few simple tweaks in your habits, to get you feeling younger, more energetic, and those pants a little looser again.

Understanding your body
No matter if you are a man or a woman, once pass your mid thirties your body starts aging faster. Studies have proven that without sufficient exercise, your body ages 6 months more for each passing year!
Think about that for a second, if you are 40, if you sit back and do nothing, you'll end up feeling and looking like you're 48 by the time you are 44! This is probably not something that is appealing to most people.
Moreover, did you know that 90% of people, above 35 years of age, lose a significant amount of muscle mass each year? You lose the very muscles which help create your body’s shape, strength, and tone but gain fat. Every year your body naturally sheds the amount of muscle that it takes to burn 4 pounds of body fat throughout the year.
That's a lot.
However, all this is reversible by slowing down the aging process. This will make it so that you age less each year without any surgeries, anti-aging drugs, supplements or any gimmicks.
The answer? The Old School New Body program designed by Steve and Becky Holman. The proven program is a collection of chosen tips, tricks, and strategies to reverse the aging process starting from the cellular level so that you feel, look and move like a younger version of yourself.
The creators behind OSNB
The author of this program is fitness and nutrition guru Steve Holman. As the Editor-of-chief of Iron Man Magazine, throughout his career, he has had extensive opportunities to talk with and learn from some of the fittest people in the world. You bet he picked up a few fitness secrets along the way.
With the support of his wife. the duo were compelled to create and share the ultimate anti-aging fitness and nutrition program, aimed at helping you look and feel younger in a straightforward and easy manner.
Spoiler alert: throughout the weight loss program they speak adamantly against long, exhausting workouts that you might be used to, and revel that the secret behind a youthful toned body, are short, effective workouts.
Imagine that. Less fat, with shorter workouts.
This was what led to their developing the F4X training system, a revolutionary means of combining four exercises in a matter of minutes that work for you.
Stop those endless cardio sessions or spending hours in the gym. If you adopt the F4X training system, you'll get a great cardiovascular workout, keeping you in tip-top in shape in minimal time. This is a welcomed change for anyone who has trained with weights and did exhaustive exercise routines, but still haven't notice much change in their body shape or build after 3 months.
Learn more and make the switch
Stop doing the things that don't work. Start following the routines that are shown to be effective.
Statistics prove that only 1% of gym-goers make significant body transformations in a year, forget 3 months! This is because they are misled into thinking they have to work out longer to get a fit body, when all they're doing is educing muscle fatigue.
This about like a little like sleep, if you sleep too much, you're not actually doing your body any favors. You're not going to feel more well rested. If anything, you're going to wake up groggy and lethargic. This is the same thing that is happening to your muscles when you over work them. Anything over what they need is a waste of your time, your effort, and their development.
According to Steve and Becky, there are 5 principles you need to know and how to properly apply to successfully slow down the aging process. Make these a habit and you'll start noticing a difference even before you see one.
While core training, spin classes, hot yoga, tai chi and all are fine, they just aren't effective at slowing down the aging process of your body, shaping your muscles, or burning fat as effectively.
What actually works
With the Old School New Body program, you'll get easy to read, detailed, comprehensive information that will help you reclaim your vitality, including the only 5 steps which help slow down the aging process.
Stop the low-fat diets
Low fat diets are all the rage, but they’re not actually good for you. Yes, would make sense that if you want to lose fat, you need to stay away from fat. Unfortunately it’s just not that simple.
The truth is that your body needs fats, the good ones, to regenerate your power hormones. In fact, the strength hormone testosterone is a result of cholesterol and dietary fat, proving your body needs fat and cholesterol to produce vital hormones.
With the OSNB program, you’ll get the information that actually helps your shed pounds in a healthy way.
Stop running in circles
Gym classes, treadmills and any endurance training like running doesn’t help, but actually accelerates the aging process by increasing free radicals preying on your body’s nutrients and tissues!
What to do instead to lose weight, look and feel younger, is simply to follow OSNB’s smart way of exercising spending a quarter of the time spent in traditional workouts!
Don’t blame others for your age!
Yes, your body changes as you get older, but that doesn’t mean you should just give up and let nature take its course. Your metabolism might slow down, it might be a little more difficult to keep your muscles in shape, but the biggest factor determining many people’s health status, is the simple fact that they have just given up on their health and fitness.
The human body is amazing, and wants to keep itself healthy, it just needs a little help from you. Even people in their 90’s can gain muscle mass and tone with a few weeks of appropriate training.
The take away from this, is not to listen, or surround yourself with people who indulge in excuses not to keep their health up. Surround yourself with positive thinkers looking for challenges to keep you young by taking control of your health and body.
Misery loves company, it’s true, but don’t let negative people and complacent people get the best of you.
Water is the source of life. We all know it is good for us, but maybe you're not aware of just how much it does. Drinking enough water throughout the day helps you: burn fat, suppresses hunger and even rejuvenates your skin.
Drinking just 12 ounces of water a day can take the appearance of years off your face in a matter of weeks, while at the same time also reduces fat, gives you more energy and saves your kidneys and liver from overworking.
Save time and do more with shorter workouts
Yes, you still need to put in some time building, maintaining, or toning the muscles of your body, but when you do this the right way, you'll realize it requires a lot less effort, and time, than you might have thought. One of the very best ways to combat the natural process of losing muscle as you age is with old school resistance training.
The beauty of this is that resistance training can virtually be done anywhere, with very little equipment, and you are in complete control of the intensity and level of your workout.
A study proved that men and women who exercised about 20-30 minutes were more consistent than those who exercised for 45-60 minutes, and achieved more and faster results. A large part of this was because it is easier to mentally carve out 20-30 minutes in your day to actually fit in a workout, instead of finding 45-60 minutes of free time anywhere in your busy schedule. Combine this with the knowledge that longer work outs don't actually burn more fat.
Is OSNB right for you?
Everyone can use this program.The program is designed with people 35+ in mind, but is not limited by any age range because it is especially good at fighting the signs of ageing.
You just have to be serious about getting in shape and needn’t spend hours training at the gym.
With that in mind, if you find yourself relating to one of the categories below, this might not give you the results you're looking for.
Old School New Body Is NOT for those who:
- Are serious about bodybuilding
- Hopes to lose weight dieting without any exercise
- Expects something magical to happen without any effort on your part
- Enjoys long extensive daily work outs
- Are not prepared to work hard for a short period of time
- Buy the book and never use it.
How the program works
The human body naturally loses muscle in the 30s. This means with less muscle, your body will find it difficult to burn off stubborn body fat, or general fat altogether.
With the help of OSNB, you use short workouts targeted to help you regain your lost muscle so that you can burn more calories and fat without exhausting yourself or taking up tons of time.
The program has everything you need to know to lose weight and help your body work more efficiently. It even include a meal list of the best options to gain muscle and keep your body healthy. Combine this knowledge with the quick, easy exercises taught throughout the program and you get the perfect combination that anyone can follow.
Women need to know that the term ‘muscle building’ referred to here is not to make you look bulky and muscular. By building muscles, you are helping your body burn fat, to give you that slim, lean, toned look.
The program covers everything needed to become slim and healthy. It comprises of a handbook, delivered in PDF format, with lots of anti-ageing information with a range of exercise and nutrition plans and no time-wasting filler information. There are also some bonuses and useful guides thrown in.

An analysis of the OSNB Exercises and F4X Method
The secret to F4X method’s success is that it teaches you how to train various major muscle groups in just 30 minutes. I know you're busy, you know you're busy, and Steve and Becky know it too. Thankfuly, that's just fine when it comes to OSNB and the F4X workouts.
These concentrated exercises focus only on what really works, and gets results, so you won't be spending extra time unnecessarily. By using compound exercises, which work large and multiple muscles together, you'll see faster results. These moves don't focus too much on isolation exercise, because the idea is to get your muscles to help each other out and grow together.
Thought the word ‘F4X’ seems like it might be extreme and complicated to follow, it’s made so mysterious for marketing purposes to build intrigue. It’s nothing but the number of reps and sets of the exercise you need to do.
The F4X Method suggests picking a weight which you can make 15 repetitions but do only 10 reps, and then rest for 30-40 seconds. The second and third sets call for 10 more repetitions each, with the same weight and rest for 30-40 seconds in between sets.
It’s during the 4th set that you have to do as many repetitions as you can, till you can’t even lift the weight. If you manage to do 10 repetitions in the last set, you need to increase your weights for the next workout slightly, or do 11 repetitions for each set as 4 x 11.
The secret is in the type of exercises you do, which parts of your body to work out together, and which to rest.
Some exercises you could do with weights are squats and lunges, overhead press, different dumbbell rows and forms of bench press, along with some other exercises you most likely are familiar with.
The goal- burn calories and get results quickly. The exercises are not meant to be exhaustive, so you'll stick with them, and can fit them into your busy schedule.
