4 EXPERT TIPS FOR Men to Age Gracefully
Natural Solutions|February 2021
We all want to believe that we get better with age, but growing older can often make a man feel more like a broken-down beater than a classic car. Luckily, it is possible to handle the process with strength and integrity. Try a modern approach to aging gracefully with these four steps,” says Dr. Spar.

1 KEEP MOVING

You lose 5-7 pounds of muscle mass every 10 years starting in your 30s, and this number only goes up after 50. Your metabolism also slows down, making it harder to keep your weight in check, and your aerobic capacity decreases. Want to stay toned and trim but don’t have a ton of time for exercise? Consider high-intensity interval training (HIIT). A recent study found this type of vigorous exercise may stop or even reverse the decline in the cellular health of your muscles that accompanies aging. Just make sure to give yourself enough time to stretch. “I probably don’t need to tell you that we lose flexibility as we age, but even a few minutes of light stretching every morning can make a difference,” says Dr. Spar.
