Prevent training injuries when you get old

Prevent training injuries when you get old

I’m a little bit older now and wonder why I can’t train at the same intensity I used to; I just keep on getting injured. Advice?

As an individual ages, his fitness level begins to decline faster, and maintaining it requires more energy.

You should start to focus on not putting too much pressure or stress on your body by pushing it too hard. You will also need to start accounting for extra time for recovery.

In order to prevent injury, it may be time to start planning out your exercise routine and allow for more time to reach your goals.

Your body won’t bounce back as quickly as it may have when you were younger.

Giving yourself ample time to prepare for greater exercise is key, as is allowing more time in between fitness levels to let your body recover.
