Improve your Fitness | In Perfect Form No Matter Your Age
Just because you’re getting older does not mean you have to let go of your body. The bigger you are, the older you look. You need to be conscious of your diet and stay away from foods that are unhealthy.
Aside from that, you also need to find ways to strengthen your bones and tone your muscles. Cardiovascular exercises work fine, but you do need to do more when you get older. However, some of you may not have the time or the means to enroll in a gym. Not to worry because there are things you can do at home.
All you’ll need is a pair of dumbbells and you’re good to go. Tone up on your moves and get the body you’ve always wanted. Using your age as an excuse no longer works. Right now, you really have to be vigilant about your wellbeing so that you will be able to enjoy life even when you are in your later years.
Start now because when it comes to your body’s healthier, the sooner you do something about it, the better it will be for you.
What you need to do right now is master a couple of moves. First one involves you sitting with your back straight on a bench. If you don’t have this at home, you’re still okay. Just make sure you don’t rest your back on anything when you do this exercise.
Next, you need to hold a dumbbell in each hand. Hold the dumbbells on your side at about the level of your ears. Then, push your arms straight overhead so that they are fully extended.
Return to the starting position and do at least five repetitions. To maximize this move, you need to hold the weights over your head for a second.
Then, you can stand upright and make sure your back is straight. The point here is to never ever slouch when you exercise. Keep your feet wide apart and bend your knees only slightly.
Hold the dumbbell in each hand using an overhand grip. Next, bend your elbows and lift your upper arms straight out to your sides. Slowly move them in a flapping motion as you do this repeatedly. This helps a lot in toning your triceps or the back of your upper arms.
Remember, the skin on your arms start to loosen as you get older. This move is actually very important for you. To maximize this routine, do at least two sets with five repetitions per set.
Lastly, you also need to learn the bicep curl. Stand with your feet wide apart once more and with your back upright. Hold the dumbbell on each hand using an outward grip. These things must be kept close to your body and in line with your hips.
Curl your arms toward your shoulders then bring them down again to your original position. To maximize the move, do at least a set of ten repetitions.
Supplement all your efforts by saying no to alcohol binges and curbing your carb intake. Just stick to complex carbs such as fruits, whole grains, and a whole lot of veggies.
After that, you should be on your way to a better you.
