Salvere Blog: Age Specific Exercise?

by Salvere Health and Fitness
puzzle piecesEver read anything about exercise specific to certain age groups such as balance for older people or higher intensity for younger? What makes an age equal a certain fitness level or abilities?
For many years, exercise recommendations come with some pretty specific parameters. Do this many minutes a day, do this many repetitions, this many times a week, this many pounds … How do we shift this mindset to make activity specific to the individual and how things feel that day? Why wait until we don’t have something like balance or flexibility or stability to work on it?
What if we started focusing on what needs of each person based on genetics, history, injuries, accidents, likes, dislikes and experience instead of thinking we every person of a certain age group “should” do certain exercises?
Spend some time thinking about what pieces already in your puzzle and what pieces you might want to add to formulate something that feels balanced and achievable to you.
