Interview with Greg Carver about Fitness for Older Men (Part 2)

Greg Carver

Note: If you haven’t read part 1 of my interview with Greg Carver, make sure you check that out first.

In the first installment of this interview with Greg Carver, I learned a lot about his background and his unique approach to fitness, which has helped him get into the best shape of his life in his late fifties. And in today’s interview, we go a little bit deeper into the nuts and bolts of what Greg did to heal himself from a lifetime of health challenges, what he does now to stay in excellent shape, and how he helps his clients do the same (i.e. mostly aged 40+).

So, if you enjoyed part 1 of Greg’s interview, you’ll love this one, too!

Here are some of the topics we discussed during Greg’s interview…

  • How Greg overcame decades of serious health troubles in just 60 days by taking a chance, changing his diet, and supplementing wisely
  • Greg’s transition from traditional gym training to unconventional fitness methods
  • Greg’s multi-faceted approach to joint mobility training, why you need it, and how to benefit the most from it
  • How Greg programs barbell training and other heavy weightlifting for people who aren’t bodybuilders or powerlifters
  • The difference between mobility and flexibility training and how to make the most of each
  • What Baby Boomers and Generation X needs to know about fitness
  • The value of natural movement training (e.g. MovNat), Greg’s unique approach to it, and why he still does an “arm training day” once in awhile.
  • The most fundamental fitness and movement standards that everyone should be able to achieve, regardless of age
  • Why being uncomfortable might be one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself, and some practical ways to practice it in daily life.
