I went for my first ride on a speedboat yesterday.

I ****ing loved it.

Through all my childhood years, my family could never afford to take me on a speedboat. Having done it for the first time last night, I now know what all the fuss is about.

Having my hair pulled back by the wind and a strong breeze blowing in your face is something that simply *has* to be experienced, if you’ve never felt it before. Riding the wave as the boat gets airborne is a gut-wrenching experience as well, that has to be felt by people of all ages and genders.

If you’re unsure of the best speedboat to buy, I believe Bayliner and Baja are two good ones to look at. Otherwise I’d duck into your local boating and camping store, as they’ll undoubtedly have the best offer for you.

Personally, I’d spend anywhere up to $200,000 for a boat, but your budget is something you need to consider before you go and make the purchase. So you can get all the bells and whistles, or just something simple, and it will still give you that exhilarating experience you’re after.

Just make sure the boat is sturdy enough to withstand the waves, or else you’ll be in for a *huge* shock!

Have fun out there peeps, and stay safe

How to develop the strength to ride a speedboat as you get older

When you get older, for some reason it all gets so much harder.

Harder to feel the adrenaline and the thrill from riding a speedboat, harder to use your muscles to ride the boat, harder to maintain the fitness required to ride the boat, and harder to find some attractive ladies to ride the boat with you.

I turned 40 last month, and I’ve found some incredible tips on how to be a solid speedboater despite being a bit long in the tooth.

By far the most important tactic is to make sure you weight train. If you’re think you’re training enough, train even harder, because controlling the wheel on a speedboat is no easy feat and requires surprising amounts of strength. I had no idea how much strength it would require to steer a speedboat until I first started boating in 1999. I only started weight training a year and a half ago and it has honestly helped me immensely!

Another important tip is to do cardio exercise. Turning the wheel for hours on end at high speeds does require large amounts of stamina, and there’s no better way to train for it than to do some rowing, running or cycling. You’ll probably find that you’ll shed some body fat while you do it also.

If you’re going to weight train to help you speedboat and you’re over 40, just bear in mind that your testosterone levels are not what they should be. For that reason it’s important to supplement with a good testosterone booster. I have tried a few, but for me Testogen has been the most effective. You can get a sample at http://testogensupplement.com.

By the way, when you weight train, http://www.mensfitness.com/ says to make sure you stick with moderate weights and high reps. This will be most similar to speedboating and will give you the strength and endurance required to steer a boat.

At the end of the day we’re never going to look like Arnie did in his heyday once we’re over 40, nor are we going to have the testosterone levels of a 26 year old. But, we can ensure that we are bigger, faster and stronger than anyone else over 40. Plus if we weight train, run and supplement, we’ll definitely have a healthier mind, spirit and sex drive than any of our friends.

A buddy of mine is actually 45, yet he looks 30. He probably has the strength and fitness of a 25 year old. Believe it or not though, he has taken a fitness supplement in his life. So for some people, staying strong and fit to steer a speedboat comes naturally as we get older. But for most of us, we require a bit of help through diet, exercise and supplementation .

Anyway, I’m out to hit the water chaps… Happy boating! 🙂
