The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - STATE OF THE NATION -

“There’s a grow­ing aware­ness around the im­por­tance of mov­ing through­out the day and I think these re­sults re­flect that. Walk­ing pro­vides a num­ber of ben­e­fits, such as in­creased blood flow and im­proved heart health, but it’s im­por­tant not to for­get about strength train­ing. As you age, your mus­cle mass de­creases and this af­fects your bal­ance, co­or­di­na­tion and meta­bolic health. To slow this de­cline, be sure to add a few re­sis­tance-based moves ( like squats or push-ups) into your work­outs, or give Pi­lates a try.” “As men grow older, their jobs be­come more hec­tic, they start hav­ing fam­i­lies and their fit­ness starts to de­crease. That’s not to say it should, though. Group fit­ness is great for mo­ti­va­tion and helps to boost your so­cial con­nec­tion.”
