Age is just a number, you're only as old as you feel...so always try to feel something young.

I'm 72, started running at about 51, ran a number of half marathons and finally ran a full marathon at age 65. Feet and left hip gave me problems so I'm on the bench right now.

Best aging advice someone gave me. If you didn't know how old you were, how old do you think you'd be? There! That's you're real age

Pullups, pushups, core work, squats, etc. You can do it at what ever level you need to.

The workout is called maxT3. It's a CD that guides you through.

My wife does it.

I do something a bit different, and a bit more intense. For example I do High Intensity Interval running work outs for playing tennis. But for someone who is beginning this is a pretty good workout since you can taylor it for your level.

You can also get MaxWork Out by Shin Otake. I take some of his workouts and taylor them. They have different intensity levels and take a bit more time than 12 minutes; more like 30 minutes.

They will definitely build strength and stamina. You really need minimal equipment.

I have been a runner etc most of my life. But as you get older doing long aerobic workouts are really not what you need to do. High Intensity shorter workouts that combine resistance are more beneficial.

It's not anonymous if you are the only responder in the 30s. . However I do love airstreaming and my young kids (ages 1 and 3) love it too!

Here's to hoping for 40 more years of it!

So nice to be politically incorrect and (hopefully) get away with it!

My vote was "60s" but if anyone asks my age I usually answer "59… for the third time!" Otherwise I say "Fiftyleven."
The longest decade of my life will be the ten years between 59 and 60!

I feel 35 on the inside and look 90 on the outside.
Does that mean, 35 + 90 = 125 divided by 2 = 62.5???
I'll take that.
