Cross-training 50+++ discussion group???
I'm interested in somehow forming a discussion group where the focus is on folks who want to do a more comprehensive fitness regime - perhaps aimed at folks 60+ or so - I don't know, just a thought.
It would emphasize
A variety of cardio training activities
Different strength training/resistance training stuff
Flexibility and stretching
Concerns and problems associated with the above and aging a bit
Currently, I am into swimming, bicycling, weight lifting, walking and resistance exercises, specific prescribed exercises for my new problems with my SI joint, stretching. I try some with nutrition, and my body composition could use some rebalancing.
I mentioned 60+ because I think 60 or perhaps 65 is when some of this stuff becomes more challenging and problems occur that aren't there at 50.
I do not want the typical senior low-level "Silver Sneakers" approach - I want to go far beyond that. I also want to avoid, if possible, the senior "star" who excels in just one activity to the exclusion of others.
I was recently told in a gym - "Denver Fox - he is the one who exercises so vigorously that he puts all the rest of us to shame."
I was thinking of a Facebook group or whatever.
Well, I have spilled the beans.
Any reactions and thoughts?
