Do you want to maintain mobility as you age and keep aches and pains away? If so, try a few of these options to stay active and healthy.
1) Exercise For Fun
This is an important aspect of staying active in senior years. Find a place that offers an exercise program that you like, be it water yoga, mild zumba, aerobics, or a walk in the park, and spend twenty to thirty minutes each day enjoying being active. If you try to stick to a program that you do not like, or that is too long or too hard, you will find yourself not wanting to continue.
2) Do light Weight Training
Try to work in a little bit of weight training every week, but not too much. Chose lighter weights and do more reps to get the same effect without hurting yourself or causing burn out. Weight training will keep your muscles active and growing rather than deteriorating and will allow for prolonged mobility.
