Where it comes to fitness, a person of every age needs to take care of exercise and fitness. Whether they are children or older or in that stage of age, which we call old age. People of all ages are seen walking, jogging in the park, etc. Physical activity is necessary to keep the body very fit and our immunity as well as to keep it in shape, but by the age of 40, many people at times, we start feeling irritation, problems related to fitness, problems related to the flexibility of the body, joint pain, etc. At such times, it is very important to take care of certain things for our fitness.
First of all, if you are of such age, then you will have more chance of joint pain and injury. In addition, exercising will also increase fatigue. In such a situation, do not try to do any such exercise which will affect the joints more. If you are not doing regular exercise, then this problem can harm you. Apart from this, if you feel that the body is getting tired, then start slowly, but at such an age it is very important to take care of a few things.
Things to be taken care of about exercise and fitness-
1. Spinal health-
Back pain beyond 40 is common. We start having many problems related to the spinal cord and as age increases and it is beyond 50, it seems that only our old age will bother us. In such a case you need to take care of spinal health. Do exercises that affect the neck, shoulders and spinal cord.
But one thing needs to be kept in mind here too that one should not do such exercises which causes joint pains. Notice the small exercises associated with the spine. Also do stretching. Without stretching, your body muscles will not open and due to this the problem will increase.
2. Exercise to strengthen hands-
With aging, the strength of the hands also decreases. With this, if you are growing old, the grip will also become weaker. In such a situation, if you do not pay attention now, then in a few years the hands will start shivering and you will also have trouble holding a glass properly. So it is better that you take care of your hands in a different way.
Gripping exercises may be best for this. Press the sponge ball or any gripping tool very hard with your hands. Try to put more pressure. You will see that within a few days, your hands have become strong.
3. Exercise of hips-
After 40, it is very important to do the right work of the hips, otherwise you will also have problems in walking, lifting and sitting. Our body becomes accustomed to sitting for long periods of time and during this time our hip joints also become very stiff. They are not very flexible. This causes problems in our hip joints. It also increases the risk of injury to the hip joint.
It is better to start doing squares for such times. This will strengthen both your hips and feet. You can also do yoga asanas with this.
4. Take care of meditation-
As we get older, we need more and more Meditation . This relaxes the mind and relieves our stress. It is very important for our mental and physical health. It also increases our immunity. Therefore, it is better that we keep meditation in our fitness routine.
5. Balancing exercise-
Not all of us do balancing exercises properly. Balancing exercises are ignored even in most gyms. They are very important for those who are getting old. Due to any injury or disease, the balance of the body deteriorates and on such an occasion, balancing exercises work as Physical therapy. Balancing exercises like standing on one leg, walking straight in the same line, balancing with books on the head and walking can all prove to be of great use.
All these exercises become necessary for you after the age of 40 so that you can prepare your body for the coming time.
