Cardiovascular exercise is a very important exercise that has to be a part of everyone’s routine, but running long distances should not be a cardio choice after the age of 50 because our aerobic capacity decreases as we age. However, we should not stop running; just tailor it in order to be able to manage it.

Instead, you can run in moderate level with brisk walking in between.

#2 – Squats with weights

Instead, focus more on reps!
