    The body ages and breakdown. But it depends on our health as well. I just turned 43 last Saturday. I was a boxer for 17yrs. I was very conditioned but at the same time I felt unhealthy. I was on a strict diet, and on a rigorous workout routine.
    I can say honestly, today I'm in the best shape of my life. Age doesn't have to be a thing. I tore my rotator cuff a few times from striking punches at opponents and hitting heavy bags.
    Today I just workout smarter, being inspired by my grandfather who is 83yrs old and can still run circles around me.

    Staying active is key...

    Sparrowhawke try water workouts in a pool. That can help a lot too

    I love working out. Currently now for the 4th Time, I'm doing a 12-week program called Metabolic Prime. It's comprised of 15 minute resistance training either using bodyweight, dumbbells, resistance bands or kettlebells (whatever you prefer). It's done at home, but really anywhere almost as I've taken this on the road with me. It's done 3x/wk. There are four 3-week phases to this program, where each phase gets progressively harder. Even though this is the 4th time doing this program, I find challenging things each time. I like that it's quick as I don't always have a lot of time.

    On the days I'm not doing this program, I do other workouts from Beachbody, Fitness Blender, ZGym, Scott Colby, or any of the many other programs I have on my Flashdrives or on YouTube. I am doing something every day with regards to workouts, whether they be intense stuff or restorative stuff. I do listen to what my body is telling me I should or should not do.

    I also take a weekly self-defense class. I'm dealing with bad environmental allergies, but I love to do leisurely walking. This really helps bring down cortisol levels, as I'm a Type A type person. It's one of the few forms of exercise where you can burn a reasonable amount of calories without increasing cortisol. When I walk, I usually spend that time worshiping God through praise & song, or I will pray (with my eyes opened) - like walking/talking with God and listening also, or I will listen to health, fitness, or some other learning audio.

    It's taken me 3 decades to finally come to balance in how I workout. I used to be gung ho at my workouts resulting in injuries on a regular basis. I've now gone almost 2 years (1 more month to go) without serious injury and doing something every day that's physically good for my body.

    Trying to ease into working out. As just had a sinus surgery done. But will be getting there. Usually workout for two hours four to five times a week. But doing so after surgery for just thirty minutes.

    I do Hasfit on Youtube. Right now I am doing the Hero 90-day program. It is a killer but just what I need.
