3 Key Areas to Focus on with your Senior Fitness Program.

1. Cardiovascular training has a direct effect on our endurance levels. The more oxygen we breathe the much more efficiently we burn our fuel. Oxygen has numerous advantages in providing essential energy and physical fitness. If you are attempting to lose fat, you have to do a lot more cardio than if you’re trying to gain pounds. For fat reduction, 3 to five times per week at 20 to 40 minutes per session is plenty. Begin conservatively if you’re just beginning a routine, for example 2 to 3 times a week, 20 minutes per work out. Walking, bicycling and also swimming are excellent examples of cardio and endurance exercises.*

2. Strength training protects our bodies’ skeletons. Greater muscle strength helps improve your capability to balance and increases your capability to do everyday tasks without straining your muscles. As a senior, you might know, we are meant to shed muscle mass as we age; but that doesn’t mean we get rid of our strength. Just simply because we are a senior, we need not become weak and vulnerable. Great habits results in better fitness for all ages.*

3. Flexibility training prevents injury and will help make you more limber. Dancing, playing sports, and also martial arts have strong benefits for your fitness. Stretching is key to your exercise and flexibility. You should always warm-up and cool-down whenever you physical exercise and both should include some stretching. Better flexibility could reduce the pain of arthritis.*

Numerous studies have provided evidence that obesity and physical inactivity can boost the risk of death. We spend most of our time inside of our bodies and its tough to get away from them.*

5 Myths about Exercise and Aging*

Myth 1: There’s no point to exercising. I’m going to get old anyway.

Fact: Exercise and strength training helps you look and feel younger and stay active longer. Regular physical activity lowers your risk for a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s and dementia, heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, high blood pressure, and obesity.*

Myth 2: Older people shouldn’t exercise. They should save their strength and rest.

Fact: Research shows that a sedentary lifestyle is unhealthy for adults over 50. Inactivity often causes older adults to lose the ability to do things on their own and can lead to more hospitalizations, doctor visits, and use of medicines for illnesses.*

Myth 3: Exercise puts me at risk of falling down.

Fact: Regular exercise, by building strength and stamina, prevents loss of bone mass and improves balance, actually reducing your risk of falling.*

Myth 4: It’s too late. I’m already too old to start exercising

Fact: You’re never too old to exercise! If you’ve never exercised before, or it’s been a while, start with light walking and other gentle activities.*

Myth 5: I’m disabled. I can’t exercise sitting down.

Fact: Chair–bound people face special challenges but can lift light weights, stretch, and do chair aerobics to increase range of motion, improve muscle tone, and promote cardiovascular health.*
