Baby Boomers and why You should be Exercising


A Baby Boomer is someone who was born post 2nd World War up to 1964 I believe. Those born almost immediately after the War in the late 1940’s will be just retiring or getting ready for retirement.

It is important to keep exercising into your elderly years to keep your muscles and bones strong, your heart healthy and so on.

If you have heard the saying ‘If you don’t use it you lose it’ you should know that this saying speaks some truth when it comes to the human body. If you don’t use your muscles as much as you should they will atrophy, you will become weaker stiffer and possibly more prone to arthritis.

For men it is very important to do your best in keeping your testosterone levels up to keep your youth as long as possible.

Having good health is important at any age but even more so as we age.

Exercising has so many benefits. A few that you might be concerned with would be the fact that exercsing helps to prevent and or slow down such diseases as Alzheimers, high blood pressure and even heart disease.

You don’t have to go through a rigorous training program to keep in tip top shape and you don’t even need to join a gym although there is something to be said about having the company of others having the same interests as you.

Exercising can be something as simple as walking every day for 30 minutes and doing some stretching afterwards.

You will want to develop an exercise program based on your current conditioning. If you are an avid workout buff already then you can just carry on with your current routines and adjust them as you feel you need to as you age.

If you have no experience working out then you will want to start slow because as you age you do not recover as well as when you were in your 20’s and I don’t want you to be discouraged.

If you have no exercise experience then the walking 30 minutes a day plan is a great start for you.

Before starting any exercise plan make sure to consult your doctor to get the green light just to be safe.

Drink a lot of water spread out over the day and make sure to stretch often.
