Physical activity regimen that includes 20-30 minutes of daily cardiac activity such as walking, running, swimming, hiking or biking is recommended for heart health, weight management and stress reduction. Particularly as you get older, it may be beneficial to supplement your exercise routine with weight lifting or other strength training activities that help prevent loss of bone density & muscle mass. The good news about exercise is that it is never too late to start. Even if you are past 50 and don not have history of physical fitness, you can still “start small” and work your way into a regular routine of exercise that helps you improve your overall health.
