Fit 50s Lifestyle Strategies

When running on a trail or visiting a fitness club, you’ll notice no shortage of the fit 50s. In fact, many are outperforming younger colleagues. Nevertheless, engaging fitness challenges in your 50s can be difficult with the natural changes of aging.

According to the American Council on Exercise when you get older, you begin to lose more muscle mass. Thankfully, with the correct combination of exercise and healthy living choices, you have the power to reverse the unfortunate inclination.

In truth, a variety of different workouts and activities can rebuild and maintain your bone and muscle, lower blood pressure, increase your metabolism, and help you keep a healthy weight. Here are some fit 50s lifestyle strategies.

Concentrate on Your Core

Since mobility issues tend to develop with age, it’s essential to strengthen your core, such as; exercises that tone up your stomach, back, and hips. These core exercises will help you enjoy a more functional life for years to come.

Be sure to include planks, wall sits, and reverse crunches. As well as, Pilates for core strengthening and increasing flexibility.

Focus on Flexibility

Incorporating a routine of stretching will improve your posture, increase your span of mobility, and assist with the loosening of muscles. Stretching should be a part of pre and post workout routines. For example, try using a foam roller or participating in Tai Chi or yoga.

Combine Strength and Cardio

Because of the aging process, resistance and strength training is extremely important to help build muscle. Unfortunately, cardiovascular issues tend to appear around age 50, therefore try and get your heart rate up daily, whether taking a brisk walk, spin class, or interval training.

Don’t Over-train or Neglect Recovery Time

Gradually increase the intensity and duration of any new exercise routine, especially if you have not been consistently exercising in the past. What’s more, consider a variety of activities if you find high-impact exercises are to vigorous and painful aim for low-impact, full body workouts like swimming.

Always remember to rest in between workouts, especially after strength training. Recovery is a vital part of fitness training since it allows your muscles to heal and repair.

Try hot tubbing after your next workout to support the blood flowing from your joints and muscles. With hydro-massage therapy, you’ll start reaping the benefits of a more restful sleep.

Be sure to live a fit 50s lifestyle by listening to your body and adapting your workouts accordingly.
