Fitness Tips for 50-Plus  

Prioritize strength training to maintain muscle mass, which naturally declines with age. 

Engage in regular cardiovascular exercises like walking, swimming, or cycling for heart health. 

Include flexibility exercises such as yoga or stretching to improve mobility and reduce injury risk. 

Pay attention to joint health by incorporating low-impact activities like elliptical training. 

Stay hydrated and focus on a balanced diet rich in lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. 

Ensure sufficient sleep for recovery and overall well-being. 

Include balance exercises to prevent falls, such as tai chi or stability-focused routines. 

Consult with healthcare professionals before starting any new fitness program, tailoring it to individual needs and limitations.
