I have been training the baby boomer and beyond fitness enthusiast for over 25 years and I can tell you the biggest fear is slowing down with age.
Although it’s changing, there are still many people over 50 who believe that it’s too late to build strength or give in to aging. This is a huge mistake!
Studies show that one of the biggest contributors to aging is inactivity, not aging itself.
So this is why it’s most important to begin a regular exercise program when over 50 — more than any other time in your life.
Unfortunately, if you’re inactive everything declines from muscle mass to cardiovascular capacity, balance etc…
When this happens that’s when you start to age.
We all have seen those in their eighties move and perform activities like they are ten or more years younger than their calendar age. I know I certainly have!
So… what can we do to increase our chances to live a long and quality life?
Other than having good genes, there are some simple things we can do to help slow aging to a crawl.
For the sake of keeping this article brief, I will give you some basic tips. If you have any questions and would like me to explain further, please send me an email.
1. Eat more omega 3 fatty acids- Fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel is a good start and nuts like walnuts, almonds and pistachios. Blueberries or any of your berry fruit family is a good choice as well.
2. Eat smaller meals and try intermittent fasting
3. Limit sugar consumption.
4. Exercise- Cardiovascular exercise at least three times per week and move every day. Strength train twice per week.
5. Limit alcohol consumption, don’t smoke and limit stress!
6. Train your brain with constant reading of books, attend workshops and lectures.
7. Have a large social network and maintain a positive attitude.
8. Stay on your feet- Try and stand every 20 minutes. Excessive sitting contributes to heart and many of other diseases.
