The Best Exercises To Live to 100 and Beyond, Trainer Reveals

Everyone has their own fitness goals for their personal health journey. Some want to lose fat, while others want to get into better shape to look and feel better. Many of my clients have another end game, choosing to start exercising and eating right because they want to live a longer, healthier life. If the latter is your pursuit, you need to start performing the best exercises to live to 100 and beyond. Follow my course, and you'll be well on your way down the road to longevity.

Beyond aesthetics, anti-aging and the ability to have a good quality of life is essential to anyone who wants to extend their lifespan. If you're looking to do the same, then you need to maintain a diet high in lean protein and vegetables, while performing cardio and strength training on a regular basis. This sounds like an easy enough plan to follow, right?

When it comes to your workouts, it's important to pick strength training movements that will build muscle, in addition to performing more interval work to improve your cardio conditioning. The reason for these particular exercises is that as you age, you lose lean muscle mass, along with anaerobic power. It's vital to do everything you can to build and maintain both.

Your strength exercises should consist of mostly compound movements, which incorporate more muscle groups and will recruit more muscle fibers. I also strongly recommend performing single-leg exercises to improve balance and hip flexibility, along with a core exercise to protect your spine. Variety is the spice of securing a long, healthy life when it comes to fitness.

If you're looking to age well and stay healthy throughout your entire life, I recommend incorporating the following exercises to live to 100 and beyond into your routine. Keep reading to learn more.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices .

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
