A sedentary lifestyle is the unfortunate byproduct of our modern society.  However, regular exercise and active hobbies not only preserve muscle tone and keep you flexible, it may improve your enjoyment of your later life. 

The standard recommendation of 30 minutes moderate exercise done five days a week is often unrealistic for most people due to their busy lifestyle.  However, recent research has found that even 30 minute session of more intense exercise three times a week can have a beneficial effect to ones health.

Keeping muscles strong as you age is important.  Scientists say that inactivity, rather than aging , cause age-related muscle loss.  As well as preserving muscle mass, remaining active can help you look and feel younger and stronger.  You could try the following to improve muscle mass:

  • Lifting free weights
  • Using weight machines in the gym
  • Attending Yoga or Pilates classes.

If you have severe muscle loss, you can try simple household objects like canned goods.  Start by lifting weight that can be easily lifted for up to 12 times, and do at least two sets of repetitions.
