How women can stay fit after the age of 40

Prioritize Regular Workout Regular exercise is more important for women over 40 who want to stay healthy and fit. Because of changes in hormones and bodies that happen in the 40s, women need to make exercise a priority if they want to stay healthy and fit.

Warm-up Longer You can't expect your body to work like a race car after sitting all day at work and then squatting heavy weights or riding your bike very fast. A good warm-up is important before any workout, but it becomes even more important as you get older.

Listen to Your Body Being careful with and taking care of your body is important. As you get older, your body can't handle mistakes and being tired as well as it did when you were younger.

Eat a Balanced Diet It's not enough to avoid processed and junk foods after age 40; moderation is also important. It's not healthy to cut back on carbs, fat, or protein.

Staying Active All Week If you're in your 20s or 30s, you might get away with not having any plans for the weekend. But by the time you're forty, you should be working out every day.

Snack Wisely Having healthy snacks is important for keeping your blood sugar level steady. Mood changes make it easier to look for quick ways to feel better when you're tired.

Try Strength Training One in three women over 50 may break a bone because of osteoporosis. Women are more likely than men to have this disease. This could make strength training look dangerous and scary to women who have osteoporosis.
