The dreaded "Metal Fatigue".......

The term "metal fatigue" is used to indicate the true status of fatigue in a metal component. We have the same issues with our bones and joints as we age but played out in a different way.

Now you're probably wondering what that has to do with staying healthy and vital. As we age this skeleton that holds all our parts together slowly begins to wear out. Fourtunately with the state of medicine today we can replace many of these parts like the knees, shoulders, hips, ankles etc., but those are expensive and difficult operations with long rehabilitation involved.

My suggestion as you age is too use your muscles and joints on a regular basis meaning regular exercise. One condition that will create real problems for your skeleton as you age is to gain weight.  It has negative consequences on your joints especially, hips, ankles, knees and lower back. There are many exercises for help keep you skeleton in good shape.

My experience to keep your aging skeleton in shape is to use light weights or use your own body weight by doing push ups, pull ups dips, ets. It's all very simple you just have to do it.

Keep it Simple, Consistent and Fun.
