Every other day I exercise using the 5bx program.  Available online.

 

This regimen has 5 exercises, hence the 5.  The b=basic, the x=exercise. 

 

The 5 exercises are:

 

1. Stretching

2.  Situps

3.  Back bends

4.  Pushups

5.  Run in place

 

Additionally,  walking is advised.

I hit the gym 6 days a week.  3 days a week I lift weights. 2 days I get in some cardio, step class and kickboxing and one day a week I do yoga.  On my "Day off" I stretch and do some back excercises.  Takes about an hour, but I feel better after.

I make exercise part of my daily routine like eating breakfast, etc. I plan my day around exercise, not exercise around my day!

I also vary my routine, so I am not doing the same thing everyday.

Finally, I know my limits. I jog but only for 30-40 minutes, not for an hour, for example.

I'm also retired, so I have no excuse not to exercise! 

I'm 57, and I have never felt better; I attribute it to healthy eating and exercise.

I walk 30  - 60 minutes every day. If the weather is inclement I ride a stationary bike 30-45 minutes. My watch reminds me to get up and move every 30 minutes. in addition to exercise i garden, work in my darkroom, or go out with one of my large (5x12 or 8x10) cameras to photograph the nearby lake.

I constantly remind myself to stand as much as possible. I also do all the shoping and cooking. Today is my 90th birthday.

Find something you enjoy!  I play pickle ball 3x/week, Zumba 1-2x/week and still do 5-10 K’s through the year but I’m finding that I’m not enjoying this winter weather!  I’ll be 67 next month and need to play it safe with snow/ice! 🙂❄️  Exercise has become part of my daily routine and I don’t look for excuses - I want to keep up with my Grandkids!

Hi this is a great article. In addition to exercising 15 min a day i also went onto a dieting system that did wonders for me. I burned 15 pounds of fat in 21 days and feel amazing. I feel like i can breath again, actually walk long distance without losing my breath after 10 minutes. Climb steps, no more elevator!
A big wow and no i can keep up with the kids at the play ground.

This article on AARP discusses the importance of at least 15 minutes of daily exercise.  https://www.aarp.org/health/healthy-living/info-2019/exercise-longevity-wellness-benefits.html

 

What do you daily to meet this goal?
