I had a listener email a great question. He asked if I ever planned on addressing some of the concerns of active seniors. The 65+ group how wants to stay active as they were when they were younger.

I’m sure many of you know people like this… those older guys and girls who were complete badasses at their sport when they were younger and now they just want to keep active and participating in sports, regardless of age. The young at heart!

Since this is a huge area of conversation, I asked him to clarify some direct questions he and his “old fart” friends (he called them this) would like to know about.

He supplied me with a ton of talking points (listed below). Thank you Jack for supplying literally all of the topic points for this episode!

I hope this is helpful for you and your boys. Keep being active!

  1. Feet- chronic pain on one side and on both sides.
  2. Balance
  3. Flexibility
  4. Functional strength - Declining strength contributes to a lot of joint pain?
  5. What to do at the gym/fitness center. Machines are convenient but lack a lot. Along with that no training partners creates a challenge.
  6. Neck pain and mobility- this is a big problem when turning and looking for traffic when cycling.
  7. Knees and hip/glutes. Possibly look at linkage among foot-knee- hip and neck and shoulders.
  8. Heart consideration for seniors
  9. Diet/supplementation. Many older guys eat poorly and too much.
  10. Exercise modification since many of the above mentioned topics limit execution and which exercises older guys/gals can do correctly.
