Hi Guys! If you're looking for 5 concepts that must be considered to keep fit over the age of 40, then this post is for you!
In the following video I discuss 5 very important concepts that MUST be considered for anyone wanting to get into the best shape possible, especially if you are over 40. These recommendations are relevant for any age, especially if you have had a long layoff from activity due to Covid-19 or any other reason. Hopefully these principles will not only help guide you back on track, but keep you training pain free and efficiently for many years into the future!
The following are a summary of my Must Do's , and links mentioned for getting Fit after 40;
1. Have a Balanced Approach Considering all 4 components of Fitness.
CSEP Guidelines for adults.
The 2 Mobility Assessments Mentioned in Video Squat Hold Couch Stretch
2. Have a Proper Mindset.
I recommend the book "Mindset" by Carol Dweck. You can also check out her Ted Talk on the Growth Mindset
3. Train More Often with a Smart Approach.
Try to move a little every single day Consistency Wins over Intensity
4. Have a Nutrion Plan.
Sound Nutrition should make you Look, Perform, and Feel Better !
