You are never too old for exercise

As you get old you find it difficult to follow your daily exercise routine. You feel upset, as you can’t exercise as easily as you did when you were young. Don’t be disappointed this is not the time to give up your exercise routine. You have to always keep exercising. But you have to make certain changes in your exercise routine, as you get older.
Your bones and muscles get weaker with age and therefore the chances of fractures also rise. Your risks of injuries increase at this stage. If you are at such age you have to realize that capacity of your body has changed. Your body is not able to adapt a sudden increase in exercise.
You can still do exercise but with full cautions. Do aerobic exercise 20 to 40 minutes, two or three times a week and strength training two or three times a week, alternating days with aerobic exercise. Try to avoid playing contact sports, as they are more risky for you.
If you are suffering from heart diseases or diabetes then take the advice of your doctor before start exercising. Exercise can help Arthritis’ patients but without expert advice don’t start any exercise. Get the guidance which exercise you should opt or which not.
Always remember you are never too old for exercise. Exercise and fitness increases muscle strength and balance. As a result you can lower the risk of common accidents such as falls and the resulting hip breaks.
If you’re an older person and want to get fit, start now your exercise program under expert guidance of your doctor.
