Age, it sneaks up on us!
Being well into my 50’s, I can relate to my clients who simply cannot work out in the “same way” they did in their 20’s and 30’s. However, that does NOT mean you cannot kick some serious butt in the gym!
It just needs to be done a bit “differently”. Yep, I’m talking about H.I.T. Instead of lifting “really heavy things”.
I recently wrote an IMPACTIVE article on the topic, and it’s been well received online as MANY can relate to this.
You see, not easily disheartened, and being pushed and motivated by my 7-year-old twin girls to look and feel my best, I continue to look for ways to physically and mentally challenge myself and my clients (above the age of 50) to strive to be their very best.
I will concede my body doesn’t push the weight and recover like it used to, but notwithstanding that, my brain, and body on a deep cellular level are stimulated and invigorated through the use of interval training.
I find myself using this knowledge when I train and consult with clients in their 40’s, 50’s and older. Whether it’s tight hip flexors, weak lower back muscles or achy knees, I have experienced them and know how to work through them.
Whereas no two bodies are exactly alike, I find integrating mini exercise bands for hips, thighs and butt, a very effective shaping, toning and sculpting tool without the potential strain on your hips, knees and lower back.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Check out my full article that was recently published by Thrive Global:
