I used to work with a young man who had a sideline business as a personal trainer. He told me that the best exercise anyone can do is squats. Squats work our largest muscles, which are our leg muscles. When we workout our leg muscles, it burns the most amount of fat. Therefore, at least twice per week, I do 3 sets of 10 squats. To work my upper body, I hold 3 pound weights and do shoulder presses when I stand up. The effect is a total body workout! In between the squats, I walk to give my muscles a break. It’s an efficient use of time because it only takes a few minutes, and an effective workout because it works the largest muscles. My goal is a 30 minute workout, which includes the 3 sets of squats and walking. Let’s get healthy at The Fifty Plus Network!

Of course, check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program. Alert1 Medical Alert Systems has a variety of senior care technology products to alert your loved ones or 911 if you have a medical emergency.
