Thinking about retirement? Why not take that extra time to pump some iron and get your heart pumping?
Sound crazy? It’s never too late to exercise. A recent study followed older women who participated in weight training and outdoor walking classes for six months.
You’d guess the women were healthier, but there were other benefits.
Those who participated in the classes had lower health care costs and fewer doctor visits. Plus, other studies show aerobic and weight training improves cognitive performance.
You can see positive health benefits from only fifteen to thirty minutes of strength training and exercise per day, even if you’re older. And you don’t have to use really heavy weights.
While you’re planning your 401K, make sure you invest in your health. It can help your body and your bottom line.
