FITness for 50 Forward


Advancing age is often thought of as a time of reduced activity, increased frailty and increased risk of chronic disease. While age is associated with profound changes in body composition including reduced muscle and bone and increased body fat, most of these changes are not the direct consequence of age, but rather the accumulation of a lifetime of inactivity and poor nutritional habits. There is a broad consensus that exercise can have a profound effect on life expectancy and general health. This American Dietetic Association manual can be used to help establish exercise programs for men and women over 50 years old. It explains what exercises to include, and how to incorporate aerobic exercise and balance training into the program.
