5 Best Exercises You Can Do If You're Over 60


I'm sharing this article because no matter what you age, you should always incorporate physical fitness in your life. Sure, it can be challenging as we age, but incorporating total body workouts helps build strength, stability, mobility and better posture.

The article I stumbled upon is written by Tim Liu, CSCS. The original source link can be found at the end of this post. In the article, Tim writes that weight training is important in your 50s as well as into your 60s. Maintaining an exercise routine can help in avoiding muscle loss and maintain your strength.

Tim also adds that in addition to the activties one participates in such as walking and stretching strength training should be performed at least two to three times a week. The five exercise mentioned for those in their 60s (or any age) are:
  1. Dumbbell Goblet Squat
  2. Side Plank with Rotation
  3. Band Pullaparts
  4. Split Squats
  5. Pushup
Equipment required to perform the workout are a set of dumbbells and resistance bands. Sets and repetitions are described in the article which can be followed very easily.

Remember folks, you're never too old to begin weight training, to will pay off immensely when done correctly and safely.
