Senior Workout: 3 Rules to Exercise Correctly After 50
1. Strech, warm up, stretch again
Warming up before any sport session prepares your joints and muscles for activity. No matter how much attention you paid to this process before, make it double now!
Dr. David Kruse, sports medicine specialist at the Hoang Orthopedic Institute in California, recommends a warm-up session of both light cardio and stretching. Focus on the muscles you’re going to use the most, but keep every area of your body active. Generally speaking, a bit of treadmill could put all muscles and joints to work and get you ready for exercise.
