GRANDPA is already a little over 60, but he just wont stop doing things he does 30 years ago. In fact, he never doing this fit for people of a much younger age — bodybuilding.
Just like grandpa, there are many other elders who would want to keep building up their physique, or at least try to keep themselves active and healthy.
At this age (60 and above), they are undeniably vulnerable to accidents which may be caused by their regimen. Bodybuilding grannies needs guidance as to the proper and safe way to maintain great physique. There are proper techniques made just for them.
Still essential to the elders
Admittedly, exercise remains an important regimen to people aged 60 and above. It helps elders keep themselves away from boredom. Exercises, especially when done with other people (most preferably their age), also keeps their social life colorful and happy. Staying active also enhances healthier and longer life.
There are however apprehensions whether or not they could still work out considering the fact that they no longer enjoy the physical condition they have 30 years ago or so.
In fact, a growing number of elders are now engaged in work-outs, athletics, aerobics and even bodybuilding. They are somehow trying to prove that age doesnt really matter. The truth however is, it does matter.
Bone structures of older people are no longer strong as it used to be during their younger days. But keeping them away from exercising may prove detrimental, which is probably why experts in this field conceptualized a training module just for the grannies.
While most grannies just wont admit that their physique is far weaker than it was years back, the truth remains that they actually need to sustain exercises but on a much appropriate manner if only to ensure their safety. As man ages, there are activities that are no longer appropriate for them.
Most elders are prone to osteoporosis, thereby rendering them susceptible to bone breakage. Most elders are also afflicted with arthritis, which retrains them from some movements.
Except for a few, who remains real “tough” for their age, most of them just have to cave in to a much safer routine. Not every grandpa can be as tough as Ric Flair, the oldest active wrestler, who still brawls against young wrestlers in their 20s.
Work-put plan just for Grandpa
For the elders, it is imperative that they first consult medical professionals. It is however important to take note that consultations should be done with medical professionals, who knows Grandpas medical history.
It is only after that a medical clearance is issued that an elder could actually seriously consider stepping up his sweat regimen.
Work-out for the elders should be on a gradual acceleration. The first stage of the work-out plan, elders are advised to take no more than 30 minutes a day of a moderate physical routine.
