We’ve heard the saying “Age is nothing but a number.” Never has that resonated more than now as I’m in my fifties and feel that I can still hang in there with the younger ones. I view getting older and staying fit as a wonderful challenge (I attribute this to my competitive nature).
We should strive to be the best version of ourselves. We may not necessarily be able to train the same way as when we were in our twenties, thirties or even forties but it doesn’t mean we can’t continue to strive to be in the best shape of our lives.
When entering our fifties, it is important to exercise on a regular basis to maintain good health. This is when cholesterol, heart disease or arthritis can become a concern. It’s important to vary our routines to keep the muscles working efficiently and to engage the brain as well.
