    Stay Fit Simple Strength Training

    The older you get, the more muscle you lose. It’s a fact. But with strength (resistance) training you can improve your preparedness for life by lessening the effects of muscle loss from aging.

    The key to success is to exercise frequently. The best way to do that is to keep it simple.

    Here’s how…

    During the winter months I do some skiing but there are times in subzero temps when that isn't practical. I work out at the gym and local dojo and spar with friends. In the summer months there is hiking and mountain biking. Here is where I work out to keep physically fit as best I can during the winter months and in bad weather. These are the four exercise rooms and there are other smaller rooms with free weights and boxing/martial arts equipment.

    Lately I find myself very busy in the oilpatch so it's make hay while the sun shines. My workouts have become less frequent and I need to get back into more intense workouts. I used to spend anywhere from 4 to 6 hours a day at the gym going full bore like an animal. Would be nice if I had the time and resources. Currently I am building my "man cave" at one of my bug out cabins that I will outfit with weights and training equipment although I had other pressing issues for now.

    My local gym:





    I also get a chance to do some reading (here I have "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross in the photo). Here I do some bike sprints for a couple hours in the late at night or early morning hours when I often have the place to myself (note the Ruger LCP I keep in my shorts). I tend to suck down a couple bottles of iced Crystal Lite lemonade to stay hydrated. Used to work out until I was almost sick but have lightened up a bit lately.

    I'm almost 50, and I just realized how much muscle mass I'm losing. My daughter said something the other day about "back when you had big biceps", and that was like a slap in the face!
