The 10 Best Exercises You Can Do For The Rest Of Your Life
It’s great when we’re young and can push our bodies to the very limit. We can punish our physical selves to the point where we’re exhausted, in pain, and unable to move for days afterwards. But as we get older we lose this ability, our bodies can’t take that sort of wrk anymore, we’d die first. That all being said, we should continue to workout.
Just because we can’t maintain the same crazy routine doesn’t mean we should stop altogether, it usually means we need to adjust what we chose to do. There are, however, several exercises that we can do right from our younger years and into our later years, they’ll keep us healthy and fit and won’t get all that much more difficult as we age.

Even if you only complete one part or perform it kettlebell-free, the move can still improve strength, coordination and balance, she says.
The exercise isn’t too strenuous yet incorporates the whole body. Check out the full post for all the exercises, which include the more common running and swimming, among others.
