Top Tips

Strengthening exercises are not always about body building. As our muscle mass will naturally start to diminish from around the age of 40, gentle strengthening exercises help preserve a degree of strength that is important for healthy day to day living.

The elasticity of our soft tissues will diminish with ageing, so ensuring that you proactively address this with stretching exercises will enable you to stay flexible.

It is important to work on the muscles that provide our skeleton with stability. Think about exercises that work your core and protect your spine.

A good level of cardio-respiratory fitness is important for your current and future health. This does not necessarily mean you have to do sport or attend the gym, but it does mean exercising at a level that elevates your respiratory rate. If you are relying on walking to stay healthy 10,000 shuffles is unlikely to do the trick – stride out!

‘Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical activity save and preserve it’ Plato
