When it comes to working out does age really play a role? Should it? While there are a few things to keep in mind about working out as we get older, the answer to the questions is an affirmative ‘yes’.
Thinking that it’s too late to start or that you are too far gone is a load of crap. The truth of the matter is as we age there is no more crucial time to start lifting and maintaining our health. Once we hit our 30’s if we don’t lift, we actually begin to lose muscle mass. Each year it declines, as I discussed in this week’s podcast.
But the good news is this isn’t the way it has to be, and there is a remedy for this. Start lifting! Slips and falls are common for the seniors and they usually result in less than favorable results, but by lifting not only do we develop our core and balance, but we strengthen our bones.
When we lift, it’s not just our muscles that grow, our bones increase in density and size as well aiding us in our aging process. So stop saying you are too old to start or that it’s too late. Otherwise, another year or five years will pass you by and you will be wishing then that you had started now.
So stop thinking about it and start lifting. You deserve it and your body deserves it. Find out more in my video.
