Exercise Improves the Aging Process...

...No surprise.  Muscle only does two things; build up or tear down.  It does not stay static.  So if you are not doing anything that puts stress on a muscle to make it grow, it will be getting flabby.  Flabby muscles are not attractive and they are not functional.  And that does not even account for the metabolic benefits of exercise.

If you are like me, there is no gym anywhere near where I live (out in the country 12 miles from a small town).  And while I work hard at tending animals, a garden and a household, it's not always muscle building sorts of work.  Below is a link to a great chart with body weight exercises for each group of muscles that need attention for overall fitness.  Click on any little picture for a short youtube of how to do it correctly!  They are in groupings of easy to hard to accommodate any fitness level  and take no equipment!  Enjoy!
