Improve your quality of life.
What do you want to do when you’re older? Do you love to hunt or play with your kids or spend time in your garden? Do you want to travel? And if you’re going to travel do you want to be able to get out and explore, and soak up new cities and immerse yourself in the culture?
Quality of life is subjective, and tricky to define. Regardless, strength training can improve your quality of life and everyday functionality. Staying active and preserving muscle mass means your life as you get older is what you want it to be. You do not need to feel trapped within your own body. But it’s not easy. And it takes some work.
Start moving today. Walk an extra flight of stairs. Track your steps. Do 5 squats down and up to a chair. Plank while watching television.
Find a coach who can teach you how to squat, deadlift, and press. Track your progress. Slowly you’ll find all those little things that once gave you trouble are no longer an issue. Life gets easier.
