At any age, physical activity is essential to stay healthy, however it is a fact that as the body gets older it loses many of its capabilities.
After the age of 40, the risk of osteoporosis or arthritis increases significantly, as well as the possibility of cardiovascular problems, in addition to spinal pain and other conditions caused by stress.
Therefore, it is highly recommended that people at this stage incorporate and maintain in their lives the good habit of exercising frequently.
Among the many physical activities that can be performed, the most recommended are:
Cardiovascular exercises, such as running, dancing, rowing or swimming. Routines of at least 20 minutes at a time and with a frequency of three to four times a week will help keep your heart and circulatory system in good shape.
High-intensity exercises such as dancing, jumping rope and tennis, once or twice a week, help improve bone strength, which decreases the risk of diseases such as osteoporosis.
Strength training, such as squats or weight lifting, improves joint endurance and flexibility, and is therefore good for preventing pain and diseases such as arthritis.
Anxiety-avoidance exercises such as yoga for better stress management
Although no exercise can stop the passage of time, physical activity guarantees a better quality of life in advanced age.
