High intensity aerobic and strength training is even more important as we age to
increase, not only lean body mass, but the little energy producers in our cells called
the "mitochondria." Though my first goal is just to get people to move a 1/2 hour
per day at the very least and do circuit training with weights for 15 minutes 4-5 x
per week, doing exercise (aerobic and strength) in the "HIT Style" is more efficient and
great for those even in their 90s! Simple version - walk as fast as you can for 30
seconds, walk normally for 60 seconds and repeat for 20-30 minutes. Something
like that! Read great articles below on the subject! When in doubt or confused just move an hour per day!!!
BUT!!!!! FIRST JUST MAKE THE TIME TO MOVE YOUR BODY DAILY - AN HOUR PER DAY AT ANY AGE! BUILD THAT HABIT AND CONFIDENCE. THEN TRY TO INCORPORATE SOME "HIT TRAINING!"
Be and Stay Well,
