Staying fit and active isn’t terribly difficult when you’re younger; it’s just about putting in the time. As we age though, even into our thirties, the ravages of advancing years can start to take a toll and make hitting the gym more challenging. Workout enthusiasts should focus on ensuring their mobility and agility are regularly boosted with specific exercises and movements. Look for techniques and training routines that stretch and flex your entire body, including your core body muscles.
- As you enter your thirties, some of your exercise focus should shift to improving or maintaining flexibility and function.
