Exercise in Different Stages of Life

Exercise in Different Stages of Life

Exercise in all stages of life can revitalize you inside and outside. However, regardless of your age, it’s crucial to take into account your key needs at that stage.

Exercise beyond 60s
Women in their 60s and beyond who exercise moderately for one hour a week are much less likely to develop arthritis.

In your 20s: Now is the time to lay the groundwork for a lifetime of fitness, so identify what you like and what balance of different kinds of exercise works for you.

In your 30s: Make sure you are doing enough cardio training during this time since it can start to get harder to shift weight, particularly around the tummy area, as you become older, which means you could get at increased risk for heart problems.

In your 40s and 50s: Continue both your cardio and resistance training to keep your metabolism high. Think about upping your resistance training during these years since weight-bearing exercises may help to slow down loss of bone mass. Regular moderate exercise may also help with some of the symptoms of menopause, such as sleep disturbances.

In your 60s and beyond: For some people, it’s best to keep away from high-impact exercise such as running, which can be detrimental for stiff or brittle bones. Gentle forms of exercise, such as swimming, which helps to maintain mobility, and yoga, which helps to keep up flexibility, are more beneficial. Studies show that women of this age who work out moderately for one hour a week are much less likely to develop arthritis.
