The 4 Best Workouts for Men in Their 20s

Your 20s are a time when you have successfully navigated puberty and the teenage years, reached physical maturity, and are likely done growing — unless you’re growing in width. Because of that, you’re the body is in its ‘final form’, more or less, meaning that for the vast majority of men, it’s not going to get any better. In a physical sense, anyway.
Once you reach your 30s, studies show that testosterone levels begin to wane, and the aging process starts to kick in, slowly but surely. Add on to that the fact that your 30s are more of a ‘settling period’ for many men — meaning that they’re getting married, starting families, and generally spending more time focused on things besides hitting their personal deadlift record. Those factors, compounded, have lasting effects on your body.
So in a nutshell what we’re trying to say is that your 20s is the best period to gain all the physical fitness that you need and so you must learn not to waste it.
Here are 4 workouts that are perfect for men in their 20s.

1. A focus on the big three

If you want to take advantage of your age before it’s too late, you must dedicate some significant time to mastering the big three compound lifts: the bench press, squat, and deadlift.
From these three main lifts, you can build any number of workout routines to help you reach your goals. The importance of these lifts can never be overemphasized. They must for the bedrock of any regimen you put together.
You may have already done some of these lifts as a teenager, but now that your body has reached full maturity, it’s time to cement in your form and start focusing on getting your numbers up.

2. A Simple PPL Routine

In case you didn’t know, PPL actually stands for “push, pull, legs.” Essentially, a PPL workout routine will cycle between these three things on any given day. And this basic format is an excellent way to put together a customized workout agenda.
For example, on day one, you will work on “push” exercises — meaning that you will be pushing the weight away from your body. Think overhead presses, bench presses, etc. On day two, you’ll be “pulling,” or bringing weight toward your body. That can include things like pulldowns and rows. Finally, day three focuses on the legs. Calf raises, leg curls, etc.
This workout routine is a great format that you must adapt to. It will not only help you build muscles but will also set you up for a lifetime of healthy habits as you get older.

3. Balance/Flexibility/Cardio


Some trainers suggest going above and beyond simple lifting routines and incorporating exercises that help you work on other aspects of your physical fitness, including balance and flexibility. This is a great idea because as we age, our balance and flexibility can waver — but by training our muscles and nerves to coordinate more efficiently, we can stave-off those processes.
Also, getting a good dose of cardio is an excellent idea. There are numerous workouts that can be pieced together with this format. Just look around.

4. Starting Strength

This program covers the basics of barbell training and the body’s natural movements. To be more specific, this program will get you on a progressive lifting schedule that should see you posting big gains, and looking better in no time.

If you’re still in your 20s, now is the time to take that as an advantage and work on your body. Make sure you push it to the extreme, because when you get older, either you might not have the time to do so, or you might not be flexible as you are now.
