It’s undoubtedly easier to treat exercise sort of a job if you’re retired. However, even if you aren’t, these are rules that require attention post-50.
As the book recommends, “Check with your doctor before starting any exercise program and don’t overdo it the first day.”

1. Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life. (This is a tall order that I’m trying to accomplish since I retired from my full-time job. I go to the athletic facility regarding four to five days every week and take a look at to ride my stationary bicycle reception six days every week. This is hard work.)

2. Do serious aerobic exercise four days a week for the rest of your life. consistent with Harry, “Light cardiopulmonary exercise is long and slow exercise at a simple pace—up to sixty five % of your max rate.

3. Do serious strength training, with weights, two days a week. (I do not raise weights, however I do millions of yoga, lifting my very own body that is much heavier.)
I do planks in yoga for strength training.

4. Spend less than you make. (I hear you. I’ve planned a monthly and yearly allow my second act. It’s not invariably simple to stay at intervals my parameters monthly. Overall, I’ve been doing a pretty good job. Check, check, check.)

5. Quit eating crap! (Check, check, check. For the most part, I’ve been eating healthier and doing more cooking since I retired. I’m on the FODMAP diet, which is keeping my irritable bowel under control.)

6. Care. (I am so grateful for my wonderful family and friends. I feel lucky that after 30 years of a fast-paced corporate lifestyle that I can now prioritize my passions over a paycheck.)

7. Connect and commit. (Speaking of passions, I’ve met many new friends since I retired. There are my blogging buddies, my yoginis and yogis, my YTT 200 yoga teachers and students at Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies, plus all the people I’ve come to know through my consulting. Oh, oh, oh, there’s also my boyfriend L. We continue to be a great team. He doesn’t exercise like I do—I’m going to give him a copy of this book to read. Hear that, L?)

It describes ways to “use exercise to reverse aging and keep robust, match and horny.” It options a guide that shows “25 Sacred Exercises, the foundation for a whole-body strength-training set up by Bill Fabrocini, P.T., illustrated with in small stages directions for doing every exercise properly.” (I was happy to envision that a lot of of those exercises ar identical poses we have a tendency to do in yoga.)

Thanks to Chris and Harry, I know why I am busier than ever. I figured out that if I count exercise as a job, I now have three part-time jobs—my exercise, my blogging and consulting, and my yoga training. I’m truly doing additional throughout my life when fifty than I did before!
Yes, it can be exhausting at times, and I still have aches and pains, but it’s also exhilarating. Hope I can keep this up for the next 30 years. Well, maybe not all these activities. Better revisit to my mindfulnessmeditation and yoga, that jogs my memory to require every moment because it comes and sleep in this.
