Why exercise? Fitness can keep you in great shape at any age, from the outside to the inside. If you are willing to devote time to training, you will always be accompanied by vitality and health. Fitness and exercise are not complicated, and they are not as difficult as you think. The trick is to be persistent and patient. As you grow older, your aging may change less than you think. What you need to do is to do well in every stage.
20-30 years old
At this age, you can exercise your body to be very tight and strong, and make the most of it. But you should care about sports injury, overtrain and slow metabolism. The older you get, the harder it is to recover from these problems.
The trainers in their twenties are a concentrated age group of sports injuries. How many young people do squats by shaking their bodies and run in the wrong posture? These problems will one day bother them, and the problems caused by joint pain and muscle imbalance will take it longer to recover.
For most people, the reason why they start to work out is "slim". They will ignore some keys during training, such as strength training. However, as time goes on, the focus of attention usually changes, but the time paid does not give you the corresponding return. Therefore, when you are young, don't only focus on the final result, but also learn to obtain more scientific technology and knowledge. These things will serve you all your life.
40-50 years old
Many people think regimen is the key at this age. The more you struggle to get rid of aging, the more you will be pulled to the "grave", and exercise will only cost your life. This is nonsense! You can still build a lot of muscles and gain strength Even if in middle-age. Later is better than never!
But what we need to know is that there are two big differences between you and young people
1. As you grow older, your muscles will be damaged more easily during training.
2. It will take longer to repair this kind of injury than young people.
But it's not the reason to stop you get back to youth. These two points just let you know more about yourself, make some adjustments in your training program, and take additional measures to ensure your muscles recover enough.Although the metabolism of ordinary adults slows down by 1% - 3% every ten years, the main reason is the decrease of muscle content. If you can maintain your muscle content, your metabolism will be maintained. If you increase your muscle, your metabolism will also be increased.
Some people used to think that aging and hormone decline are inevitable, which is not true. Your lifestyles are the primary factors that affect hormone balance. The following ways will inhibit your testosterone level: weight gain, stop exercising, long time illness, drug use, too little sleep, drinking. These lifestyles are under your control, so are healthy hormone levels.
In addition, every week you should arrange some easy, low-intensity and low-load sports. So that the body can relax and breathe. It is recommended that you take 2-3 days off a week, and arrange 1-2 days of low-intensity sports, such as outdoor cycling, running, walking, etc.
60 and older
What changes when you enter this age group? It may not be that much. You can still do weightlifting, get a healthy physique. Your metabolism can still burn calories, and your hormone level still makes you feel young.
The only possible decline is the recovery ability after exercise. Therefore, you should pay more attention to your sleep, as well as your work and rest time.
Fitness is a lifelong journey that should not be ended. Build your ideal body at the ideal stage of 20-30 years old, then enjoy and keep it for the rest of your life. If you start later, don't be discouraged, with some simple adjustments and methods, you can still get everything you want in two years and enjoy the same outcome.
