Aging muscles

As an older cyclist I understand the importance of exercise hypnosis for aging muscles. Since 1997, I have supported hundreds of people in getting up off the couch to move their body.

I found this article in the New York Times on The Best Exercise for Aging Muscles to be particularly interesting. It again reinforces that it’s never too late to benefit from exercise. It also specifically mentions the benefits of cycling. (So now I’m bummed that I won’t have the opportunity to get out on the road today.)

What’s most important is that you do get up and move. In the few years leading up to the death of my mother, exercise was standing up and sitting down or walking a lap inside her home using her walker. For others, exercise is going for a walk, going to the gym, pool, yoga class or some other form of movement.

If you are putting off getting off of the couch, exercise hypnosis can help your aging muscles to stay healthy and strong.

Online hypnosis sessions are available worldwide. Give me a call or send me an email and let’s get you up and moving.

The Best Exercise for Aging Muscles

“Many of these affected genes, especially in the cells of the interval trainers, are believed to influence the ability of mitochondria to produce energy for muscle cells; the subjects who did the interval workouts showed increases in the number and health of their mitochondria — an impact that was particularly pronounced among the older cyclists.

It seems as if the decline in the cellular health of muscles associated with aging was “corrected” with exercise, especially if it was intense, says Dr. Sreekumaran Nair, a professor of medicine and an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic and the study’s senior author. In fact, older people’s cells responded in some ways more robustly to intense exercise than the cells of the young did — suggesting, he says, that it is never too late to benefit from exercise.”
