Bliss' Guide to The Best Exercise For Your Age   

12 Aug 2019
bliss beauty spa leeds

The Best Exercise For Your Age

If you want to lose a few pounds for summer, exercise is key. Not only can it help you to fit into your perfect party dress, but it also helps us to feel our best throughout winter. It's essential to remember that as with many things, workouts aren't a one-type-fits-all kind of thing. If you want to be as strong as possible in your older years, be sure to do the right kind of exercise when you're younger and throughout your life. Here's the type of exercise you should be doing, according to your age group...

20s

Right now you're at your physical peak of strength, speed and recovery. If you want to maintain that as much as possible later in life, then you should try to lay down healthy eating and exercising patterns now. Aim for five workouts per week with a mix of moderate aerobic activity and strength training. Enjoy a variety of different workouts to endurance, strength and lean muscle, which will be easier to retain later on in life. 

workout

30s

As your body and lifestyle changes in your 30s, so should your workouts. It is recommended to focus on pilates or a dynamic form of yoga in this time to improve your cardiovascular system as well as your flexibility. The stress-relieving benefits of yoga also compliment the often more stressful lifestyle of those in their 30s. 

exercise

40s-50s

In your 40s and 50s you begin to lose muscle mass and cardiovascular function begins to decline. Weightlifting and body weight exercises can be extremely beneficial to combat loss of muscle mass, whilst HIIT is the ideal option for busy ladies to burn fat and improve cardiovascular function, with highly effective workouts taking as little as 20 minutes.

exercise

60s

At this time your thoughts may be turning to maintaining your physical functionality as you age. Increased weight training will help you to maintain muscle mass, whilst swimming will help to maintain cardiovascular functionality. Exercises such as pilates, dance and yoga can be extremely beneficial to help you retain flexibility and balance as you age.

swimming

70s+

Regular exercise offers protection against ageing. The focus should now be on low-intensity, low impact workouts, such as tai chi to improve joint health and balance. Brisk walking and even running can also be extremely beneficial at this time in your life. 

tai chi

 If you're having trouble losing those last few stubborn pounds this summer, then Bliss is here to help you move forward with 3D lipo - a non-invasive form of weightloss. Learn more here or purchase online as a voucher here.

Haven't you heard? This summer we're committed to helping every Leeds lady achieve TOTAL body confidence! Sounds ambitious, but we're giving you the tools to get there. 
Do you dream of strolling onto the beach and peeling off your cover-up with nothing but confidence and pride in the slimmer, stronger body you've sculpted? The idea of trying to fit in an effective workout regime can seem daunting, but with a little effort and a lot of dedication we believe that you can do it! Try our beach body workout for beginners this summer, and gain results with just three-five short, easy workouts per week. No equipment required! Work through the entire circuit three times. 
beach body
1. Mountain climbers
Begin in push up position with your arms straight and hands beneath your shoulders. Bring your left knee up to your chest, then bring it back and and repeat with your right knee. Do ten reps per leg.
2. Toe touch kicks
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and hands up in the air. Kick your left leg up high and bring your right hand to touch your toes. Ten reps per leg. 
3. Squats
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your hands clasped in front of you or on your hips. Slowly bend your knees down to 90 degrees, pushing your hips back, then return to start position. Repeat for 20 reps.
4. Push ups
Start in a plank position, with your hands just slightly more than shoulder width apart. Lower your body until your chest almost touches the floor, pause, then return to the original position. Repeat for 10 reps.
5. Burpees
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms at your sides. Push your hips back, bend your knees, and lower your body as deep as you can into a squat. As you lower place your hands on the floor in front of you, shifting your weight onto them. Jump your legs back, so that you're now in a push up position. Return to start position.
