Here are some important takeaways from our exploration of the aging process.
Don’t be afraid to exercise with heavy loads even in your older years.
Simulate hard tasks like lifting from the floor or rising from a chair with heavy load. This will lead to successful outcomes in functional limitations, falls risks, and increased quality of life.
Follow the exercise guidelines as best as you can. If you can't, find a medical professional like a physical therapist who can help guide you along the process. Our team at Elite PT would be happy to help.
