Diet and fitness culture is full of fresh, young faces nowadays… But that doesn’t mean that if you’re not “young” you can’t start working out and improve your lifestyle!
On the contrary! Studies show that adults that don’t usually exercise, can experience many benefits from starting to move, do weight training, and do aerobic activity. “It doesn’t matter if you haven’t been a regular exerciser throughout your life, you can still derive benefits from exercise whenever you start,” says lead researcher, Dr. Leigh Breen.
Some tricks to start
If you’re 50, 60, 70, or even 80, you can reap the benefits of a daily exercise routine by following the proper steps:
– Ask your doctor first. Consult your physician on the best regime for your age and any health or pre-existing conditions.
– Start slow. You don’t need to have the performance level of a 20-year old athlete to start seeing results or to make it worth it. The simple fact of exercising can improve your mood, physical and mental health. Start with small 15-minute sessions and increase the intensity and duration over time as your body gets accustomed.
Why not give this 10-minute workout routine a try to start sweating?
– Don’t get frustrated. If you have mobility problems or cannot do some movements, it’s perfectly normal, and should not be a source of stress. Taking your regime day by day will make you understand your own body and its limits.
– Focus on strength. Yes, cardio and endurance are important, but they won’t be as effective if you don’t work on your strength. Bob & Brad, professional physiotherapists share with you some important exercises to incorporate into your routine:
– Make it social. Enrolling in group classes or getting a partner for your new workout routine can help with motivation and accountability. If you feel intimidated in group classes, bring a friend, you’ll feel less self-conscious and more supported.
