Both aerobic and anaerobic cardio training are necessary for tackling today's daily routine, tomorrow's adventure, and lifelong battle against aging.
- The Guidelines for Cardio-respiratory Training.
Often overlooked, especially as we start getting "older", strength training may be the single most important part of your plan for increasing your healthspan. Every physical aspect of your adventurous lifestyle will be enhanced, positively or negatively, by the strength of the muscles in your body, both big and small. One of the key indicators of advanced aging is loss of balance, and your balance can be improved dramatically by increasing the strength of the small support muscles in your legs and more specifically, your hips.
The guidelines for Strength Training.
In order for you to maintain a significant cardio and strength training regimen, ultimately, you must maintain a sufficient level of flexibility. Without proper flexibility, you will start to incur injuries, both small and large. And these injuries/ailments will start a downward spiral that will limit your ability to train and lead to more injuries/ailments. Don't let this be the thing that puts you on the couch.
