2 Great Age Reversing Exercises For People Over 50

Reversing aging is the key for many ‘aging’ men and women but there are a couple of great age reversing exercises anyone can do to help succeed in combating that growing old – slowing the process by working efficiently on some top exercises.

The best exercises that are needed as we age and lose muscle tone (at the rate of about one per cent a year after 40, on average) is strength training that focuses upon the squats, pushes and pulls.

These are particularly good for those aged over 50 and can provide total body toning routine as well as providing fast calorie loss in less time than other exercises.

Hold the dumbbells vertically before the chest and make sure you keep the core tight, push your hips back and squat to a parallel position with your hips.

You should raise the dumbbells so you can hold them comfortably by your shoulders and keep your palms facing your ears. When you rise, push the dumbbells over the head in aa single, smooth movement, which will be one rep.

Perform 2 to 3 sets of 8 to 15 reps depending on your fitness level.

The next age reversing exercise is the simple bench press with dumbbells, which involves holding them above you, arms extended and then slowly lowering the weights down towards the chest. Stretch the chest and press the weights up again to the start, trying to squeeze your pecs and triceps when you have them at the top. Do 3 to 4 sets of about 10.

Why Are Age Reversing Exercises So Important?

When people age, muscle strength and mass reduce. This ‘sarcopenia’ condition can be reduced through resistnce training and using exercises like those described here.
