Strength training

If you are doing strength training in your 50s, you can stay a lot younger even in your later days of life. You don’t have to do heavy cardio. Try to run every day, or lift smaller weights to make sure your joints are perfectly fine. Also, try to reduce those exercises that impact you in a bad way.

Get an exercise partner

This is a great way to stay in shape. If you have an exercise partner and you both work out together, this will help both of you to be motivated towards working out. Human nature seeks comfort in every possible way. So, if someday you are not feeling like working out, your partner will motivate you to do so, and vice versa. Both of you can be benefitted from this.

Stretch regularly

Stretching regularly keeps you flexible. Being flexible helps you in your later days. This prevents you from the sudden shock that occurs in your body. Also, having a flexible body helps you move easily and keeps you away from injuries.
