Seniors who've exercised for decades have incredible health, study finds

I agree.
From experiments on myself
And observations of people who exercise and do not exercise.
Linear relationship.
The more I exercise the better I feel.
And people who exercise more appear to be much healthier.
Different states, regions, countries, etc.
Why Colorado Rocky Mountain High live longer hiking and running up mountains at high altitude.
Hawaii you can go to the beach every day.
Bad weather, smog, heat, cold reduces exercise so people die sooner.
As does electronics, drugs, junk food, indoor addictions...

I ate too much carbohydrates but burned most of them off by exercise.
Still carbohydrates attack every cell in your body, causing wrinkles, sagging, muscle atrophy, cataracts, dementia,….
Sugar is worse.
Still running experiments.
Had pineapple juice last night and feel worse.
Cabbage is better.

Egg yolks contain Tryptophan precursor to melatonin happiness and many other nutrients.
Exercise is as important to brain as body, grows new brain cells and connections so you can think better neurogenesis.

Looked at marathon running times for older people and they don't look so bad.
Honolulu marathon is the best - they stop all traffic until everybody is finished.

I am still planning to run up Pikes peak to 14,000 feet ASAP when snow melts in spring.
Running a little indoors to build up tendons and joints.
Will convert to outdoors as weather improves.
Days start getting longer next week!
Start diets now!

Seniors who've exercised 30 or more years have health of those in their 20s, study finds

Beyond muscle mass and aerobic capacity, long term exercising seniors appear to have a biological age 30 years younger than their chronological age.
In 1980 Karen Voight was one of the most popular instructors in Los Angeles, if not the country.

After almost forty years, she is still at it.

"So I've been doing it every day - never taken a day off since," Voight said.

And it shows. Students like Hank Keilly have been with her along the journey.

"I love coming into a group class and being energized by the group. Try and do it as often as you can and diversify," Keilly said.

Most know staying active has a lot of benefits, but a recent study found that people in their 70s who have exercised consistently are biologically 30 years younger than their chronological age.

While the researchers were looking at muscle and cardiovascular health, it was important to note that these people had overall health benefits. And they were actually better than those in their 20s.

Researchers found aerobic capacities fared better in the older group than those in their 20s, but note that genes, lifestyle, diet and even income may contribute to health factors. The study did suggest the benefits to staying active.

"The main thing I tell people is just don't quit completely. If you have to ease off it, get back into it. Do what you can, work around your injuries," Voight said.

Cross training is certainly a plus.

"Those who stay with it are with it," said Bay Club trainer Marc Natividad.

Natividad is in his 50s and wants his clients to know it's not worth giving up on fitness.

"They start getting sore, there is atrophy, they're not sleeping and they are in pain," he said.

For those who need some inspiration to get to it?

"I think if they were to look at people who are in extraordinary shape that alone inspires me," Natividad said.
