A lot of senior citizens mistakenly believe that they are “too old to workout”. But the truth of the matter is that most seniors are physically able to start a weight training exercise program to build muscle, lose fat, and improve their overall fitness.
If you go to any gym these days you will see people in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and beyond in the weight room lifting weights, doing cardio, and taking part in group fitness classes. Some of them are even in better shape than people half their age.
Regardless of age, improvement is always possible. Now I’m not suggesting that grandpa or grandma is going to become a world class athlete after a few months of hitting the gym. That’s a pipe dream goal even for someone in their 20’s.
But you can start taking action right now to improve your current health and fitness level. So, for you guys and gals in your golden years who are looking to live life to the fullest in your retirement, you can do so with a proper weight training workout routine.
To get started, I recommend following a basic beginners workout routine 3 days per week. This schedule will provide your body with adequate time for rest and recovery between workouts.

Then on your off days from weight training you can keep active with some low intensity forms of exercise like walking. Going for a daily walk is one of the most underrated forms of exercise that has numerous health benefits for people of all ages. It will help you burn fat, reduce stress, improve your work capacity, and just make you feel good about yourself. There is nothing like getting outside for a walk and breathing in some fresh air for elevating your mood and lifting your spirits.
