Your body may change as you get older, but you can stay youthful, energetic, and strong, simply by exercising smarter. No matter your age or activity level—it’s time to get motivated and moving again. But first, you need expert guidance to do it right.
In Fitness After 40, Dr. Vonda Wright, the creator of a unique medical program designed to target the fitness and performance needs of mature athletes, reveals how you can use flexibility, aerobic exercise, and strength training to maximize the benefits of your fitness regime. Now in a completely updated Second Edition, this inspiring and practical guide shows you how to:
• Gain flexibility
• Improve balance
• Build strength through resistance training
• Increase your fitness while minimizing injury
• Benefit from aerobic exercise
• Avoid injury to your rotator cuffs, lower back, knees, and legs
• Make the most of your exercise routine during a busy week
• Hydrate and eat right
• And more
Building on the empowering information supplied by the book’s original publication, the Second Edition includes a decade-by-decade guide to maximizing your health, including tips on how building a better body can also help you build a stronger brain…a new Six-Week Jump Start to Mobility Plan, which walks you, day by day, through a manageable, increasingly demanding workout schedule…26 brand-new resistance exercises to help you work your entire body, detailed with step-by-step instructions and clear illustrations…and new, specially targeted “20 Minutes to Burn” workouts that you can easily fit into your busy life.
Packed with new information on injury prevention, joint preservation, nutrition, the mind/body connection, and more, Fitness After 40 helps you understand your body, and approach exercise in a whole new way...and feel better than you ever have.
