20s is the time when your hormones are in a stable condition for growth. It’s the perfect age to power through all types of activities and experiment a bit, because your body is highly resilient. Doing weight bearing exercises will increase your bone density and will go a long way in preserving your bones as you start aging.

 

This is the time to preserve your joints. A cardio regimen that includes running, swimming, kickboxing and dancing are perfect for building and maintaining heart rate.

 

Look out for new fitness trends. Stay aerobically active for life and your heart could be in equally good shape at 60s as it is in your 20s. Have plenty of fruits and green vegetables. Fibre-rich foods like oats, barley, ragi and bajra will boost your strength and energy.

 

Develop a habit of doing 4-6 days of moderate intensity aerobics activity for 45 to 60 minutes. When you do longer workouts, it helps you build endurance and burn fat. Spens 10 to 15 minutes, alternating between activities like the bike, jumping rope or treadmill.

 

Strength train for one or two days a week, by doing two to three sets of each move. Don’t overdo weight training or any other forms of exercise because it might leads to injuries.
