Open that stub­born jar of pasta sauce your­self

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

The day you hand over that jar to the man around the house – or any other sim­ple chore be­cause it’s be­come a bit too hard – is a sig­nif­i­cant one. “That’s an in­di­ca­tion you’re los­ing mus­cle strength,” says Pro­fes­sor Dow. “So you need to recog­nise that sig­nal and get your­self into a pro­gram that specif­i­cally tar­gets mus­cles.” Pi­lates, strength train­ing and ex­er­cises that use your own body weight, such as planks and pushups, are great places to start — just be sure to de­vise a pro­gram with a pro­fes­sional trainer or in­struc­tor first to avoid in­juries.
