“Muscles Grow Only If They’re Forced To.”

This week we’re bringing back Michael Matthews to discuss his new book, Muscle For Life. There is no question that the guy knows how to get people fit, but this book is even more geared to the 40 and over crowd, which, lets be honest, can struggle with maintaining muscle and staying lean. But of course, no PA conversation would be complete without some covid coverage and philosophical banter.

Michael Matthews wants you to have Muscle For Life. Not just the young go-hards, but the middle aged folk who’ve maybe let training take a back seat to their other responsibilities. His simple yet effective approach is what makes him appealing to the masses. You don’t have to be a so-called “athlete” to see results.
