- If you don't exercise, start by adding 10 minutes of exercise to your daily routine.
- If you do exercise and only do cardio, add resistance training (or vice versa).
- If you already do both cardio & resistance training, add something new or increase the time/intensity.
Resistance training is great for our bodies. It is especially important as we age so that we maintain our muscle mass and our strength. Without resistance training the body naturally becomes weaker as we age. You don't have to go to a gym to do this. At home you can do crunches, planks, dips, & push ups. You can also buy resistance bands for less than $20 (as in the picture) use them to work out at home. Here are some links if you need more ideas/tips.
