Hello, I read the article on the importance of strength training and balance as we head into the 50’s and beyond. I was always quite active and enjoyed swimming and hiking etc. With life busy during my 40’s I slipped away from it a bit. I have been doing a 3-4 times a week routine of dumbbell workouts mixed with stretching and balance techniques( standing on one leg and then other for as long as you feel able)….so I progressed from lifting 2kg weights(4kg total) to lifting 5kg(10kg total) over roughly an 18 month period….I feel stronger and if I do say so myself, pretty lean! I also incorporate about 40 minutes of brisk walking at least twice a week(sometimes weather permitting 😂. I am 55 years old and retired from nursing, my husband and I have other little business ventures we enjoy. I also massively love gardening….again a seasonal/weather friendly activity. All in all if you get started, you just may find that making time for activity becomes high on your weekly list of priorities 🏋️♂️….enjoy!🥰
