Everyone has to fight for their right to party, but what about exercise?
Well, actually, you do.
One of the more difficult aspects of exercise as you get older is when you're still adamant that you can do all the things you did when you were 10 years younger, but when in actuality your body is telling you it is time to alter your workout routine.
Hitting the free weights hard in your 20s or running hard on the treadmill in your 30s often has to give way to a different type of exercise, one that you might not be accustomed to but still would be deemed as more than necessary given that the goal of long time exercisers is to preserve your joints and allow you to age without doing permanent damage to muscles, ligaments or living life with strains and sprains to no end.
You want to think about potentially enlisting the help of a personally trainer after the age of 40, since that is someone who can point you in the right direction.
This isn't to suggest that all of a sudden exercise isn't paramount or good for you as you get older. Quite the contrary, but rather this is more about avoiding exercises that avoid the aging process.
