This Is 40. It's Time To Pump It Up.
We find many things to avoid in our lives and places to not to park our moments. Taxes come to mind, estate planning, cleaning out the freezer, and then there is working out. No one LIKES to work out. Even the ever fit and fabulous 40-year-old celebrities of the world have troubles getting off the couch from time to time. It's just hard to get the body moving as we age.
However, it has come to my attention the older we get, one of the most important things we can do for our body is strength training. Apparently, it helps keeps bones healthy and our minds sharp. As I sit here typing up this post, I am dreaming that weight lifting would include the motion needed to get ice cream from a sugar cone to our lips. However, as we age, our muscles require a lot more flexing than ice cream moment can provide. We need to weight train, do push-ups, flex the abs, take a power yoga class or just get our muscles crunching.
Only then can we scream for ice cream.
So, let's turn up the tunes today. Get the 40 year-old-bod going because as we age ice cream is going to get harder and harder to shake off the old rump. More importantly, our bodies will thank us when we can still eat ice cream and twerk well into our 50's without breaking a hip.
Until tomorrow Muscle Pumping Grey Haired Maniacs.
