Exercises for Over 60’s.
So what can we all do to halt or even reverse the ageing process?
And I am referring here to people of all age groups, both male and female, as the following tips and video will help everyone have a longer, healthier and more fruitful life.
It is all about Active Ageing……..
Active Ageing isn’t just about holding onto your youth — it is far more important than that; it is all about maximizing the opportunities of aging and maintaining your independence in the process.
To boost the production of helpful hormones and maintain strength, balance and flexibility, the benefits of exercise for baby boomers, and everyone else, is second to none – a moderate anti-aging exercise program, along with a clean diet, is exactly what you need to be doing.
For the best results you must exercise on a regular basis.
By doing this regularly, not only are you working your muscles and cardiovascular system, you are sending constant signals to your brain for more production of the hormones that work against the aging process.
When exercise is done sporadically, you won’t receive results as noticeable as what you would when done with daily periods of activity.
This is just one of the many reasons Why Strength Training is SO Important as You Start Aging.
Not all exercises are created equal when it comes to anti-aging.
Certain types of exercises and the level of effort involved in the activity you engage in all help determine your results in assisting you to remain mentally alert and live a longer and healthier life.
Reap Powerful Anti-Ageing Effects with these Exercises
Exercises with anti-aging effects can be divided into three separate categories: flexibility, strength building, and cardiovascular.
Exercises that help you maintain and increase your flexibility, and balance, are the most important when it comes to reducing the effects of aging on your body.
They naturally increase production of serotonin and increase blood circulation. Best of all, they are safe to do and suitable for everyone, no matter what the state of your current health status.
In order to increase bone mass, it is important to work the muscles that pull on the bone.
Your body responds by building up the bone in the area where the muscles apply pressure. As your muscles and bones increase in strength, the potential for debilitating injury greatly decreases.
These heart-healthy exercises are important to keep your weight down and reduce periods of depression.
They are simple to do and can include brisk walking, jogging or running. Make sure you exercise hard enough each day to increase your heart rate so that vital hormones are produced.
It doesn’t matter what time of day you choose to work out.
However, since a lack of flexibility is part of the aging process, you can reduce the risk of injury by choosing to work out after you have been up and moving around for a while.
Staying healthy doesn’t require an expensive gym membership……..just the will to do some regular exercise.
Going for a walk or jog around your own neighbourhood costs nothing but does lots for your health, both physical and mental.
