Ten reasons why you should think ahead in terms of your fitness.
1 Don't initially overload on very heavy weights. Use what your comfortable with, then gradually increase the weight as you get stronger.
2 If you have not trained with weights before, spend a few weeks getting fitter rather then jumping in with the heavy weights.
3 Avoid the new trend of 15-minute work outs with excessively heavy weights if you are a beginner. If done incorrectly they will cause injury.
4 Invest in yourself by getting the advice of a trainer who understands your needs, and who can give you a good routine.
5 60 is now the new 40. Think in those terms. Don't think or talk old. Mix with younger people or those who think young.
6 All exercises improve digestion and elimination by the tummy muscles being more controlled when they get strong.
7 Your body contains approximately 200 bones joined by ligaments and tendons, which continuously grow throughout your life. You need to assist them by continuously moving and exercising.
8 Before taking any vitamin supplements, get advice from your local health store. They may recommend calcium for strengthening your bones, with vitamin A and D to help absorb the calcium but you should always get advice from a health care professional.
9 Read books on anti ageing, such as 10 weeks to a younger you - Thorbjörg
10 Genetics play a huge part in how we age but to help nature, stay on a good diet, exercises with weights have good friends and learn to like yourself.
