As men age, it becomes increasingly important to maintain a consistent exercise routine in order to stay healthy and strong. One effective way to do this is through a combination of functional fitness, body weight training and yoga.
When combined, these modalities provide a well-rounded exercise routine that can help you stay injury-free by upping our stability, flexibility, balance and coordination. Additionally, these exercises can be modified to suit individual needs and fitness levels. So, men can start with what their body can handle and gradually increase the intensity and duration.
Yoga increases flexibility, balance, and core strength. It also improves breathing and reduces stress. Functional fitness focuses on exercises that mimic everyday movements. This type of training improves overall strength and stamina, making it easier to perform daily tasks and reduce the risk of injury down the road. Remember, easily bending over at 80 to tie our shoe is the goal! Body weight training is advantageous because it requires no equipment and can be done anywhere you find motivation, (that's where we come in;) It also helps to increase muscle mass, which can improve overall health and make you wicked handsome!
