Read this: Exercise Wins: Fit Seniors Can Have Hearts That Look 30 Years Younger via NPR
“We saw that people who exercise regularly year after year have better overall health than their sedentary counterparts. These 75-year-olds — men and women — have similar cardiovascular health to a 40- to 45-year-old.”
This is a marathon. You’re in it for the long haul 💪

Upper body Strength circuit. 💣 A common fault in new lifters is not using the glutes during pressing movements. With this floor press variation you really can’t help it—the bridge position forces you to start with glute activation before pressing. It also shifts the angle of force to more of a decline bench pattern. 💣 This side press variation eliminates a lot of the proprioceptive weirdness and mobility issues with the true standing side press. Having four points of contact on the floor makes for a very stable platform to practice the side press in isolation. Roll the shoulder blade down toward your hip and in toward your spine, bring the elbow down behind your rib cage, then drive the bell straight up. The idea is to feel the lat loaded like a compressed spring so much that the weight wants to shoot up and away from your trunk. 💣 The side plank helps reinforce this same lat activation awareness. Without engaging the lat of the base arm, the shoulder gets jammed into an uncomfortable and unstable position. 💥💥💥 ——————————————————//————————————————— • • • • • 5x 5 Hip Bridge Floor Press 5 Half Kneeling Windmill Side Press (per side) 10 Side Plank reach through (per side) Rest 60 seconds • • • • • ——————————————————-//————————————————— . . . . . #kettlebellstrength #kettlebelltraining #kettlebellworkout #kettlebells #floorpress #windmill #sidepress #plank #lats #gluteactivation #growth #unconventionaltraining #practice #personaltrainer #coach #kettlebell #physicalculture #mvmntgym
