A study from the University of Copenhagen in Demark found that both old and young during a 2 weeks of inactivity, the leg muscle strength can weaken by a third which is equivalent to 20-30 years of aging. That is why sports is so important.

When I was in school, I played football, basketball and badminton. I was badminton captain for the school and also badminton captain in KL Technical College which is now known as UTM. 

I am 89 years old. About 1 year ago, I slipped while coming down the stairs and broke my Achilles’ tendon. I saw an orthopaedic surgent who told me that although he could re-connect the tendon by surgery, he preferred to let it heal by itself which would take about 3 months. He said that at my age I could get infection from open surgery very easily. He is an honest surgent. His consultation fee was only Rm 80. He did not want to make more money from me.

As I was limping to take a shower one evening, I twisted my right knee. Again, I saw my honest orthopaedic surgent who told me to take an X-ray and blood test. After his examination of my knee X-ray, he gave me 1 injection on the left and 1 on the right side of my knee. The injections were so painful that I yelled so loud as if I was going to die. I could not walk and I have to use a wheel chair to move about for 3 months. But I am very determined to walk. At first, I used a walker to help me walk. Then I used a walking stick.  Now I can walk without a walking stick although still painful. I must endure the pain. Every evening my wife and I with our dog walk for about 20 minutes. 

The American Heart Association advised everybody to walk at least 30 minutes every day. The 30 minutes can be made up of short walks. Walking around the house is also considered. So, I don’t sit facing my computer longer than 1 hour at any one time. I get up and walk for a few minutes.    

As you get older and older, your appetite starts to drop and then walking becomes progressively weaker. The body feels less enthusiastic and less energetic. This is the beginning of the disease of most elderly people suffer from - namely muscle wasting and weakness.

As you may be aware... the leading cause of death for many elderly people at the age of 65 and above is not a strange disease. The main cause of parental death starts with slips and falls - either in the room, bathroom/toilet or going up/down the stairs.

This is related to the weakening of the muscles experienced by the elderly... so that they are prone to poorer balance and falls. All of us will slowly and not so consciously experience a physical decline with significant changes to the body over the next 10 years. A simple example is we start to eat lesser and become less agile in our movements.

Please note that by the age of 50 we have already started to experience 1-2% muscle weakness with up to 30% muscle loss by the age of 60 and up to 50% by the age of 80 years old.

This situation can only be prevented by two main things namely a sensible diet and exercise (physical activity). These two things you should still do as much as possible no matter how old you are.

Just keep walking! Just keep walking!

Older people really need Vitamin D to prevent bone loss and muscle weakness. The skin of older people may have difficulty in absorbing and creating Vitamin D from the sun alone.

Besides eating about 1 third of a pineapple, I have been taking 1 Pharmaton capsule every day in the last 50 years. As a result, I do not have any sickness in the last 20 or more years. 

 

Just keep walking! Just keep walking!

Thanks for sharing Pharmaton Ginseng tip there! I will go and buy tomorrow! Anyway i have started to lift some weights! I bought this cheap barbell with weights! 30kg! I would do 10 reps in sets of 5! Doing squats!
I read that weight lifting is very good for aging people! Just don't overdoing it! Keeping your muscles healthy using weights is better! It also make your bones stronger as the weights will add pressure to your body structure!

Wow, Tobby. That's cool, man. If you're still comfortable doing squats, that means that your knees are still in good condition.

You could also do leg press at the leg press machine, if you do not mind going into the gym. It's good for strengthening and firming up legs, thighs, calves and glutes. Without causing too much stress on your knees.

It also helps to strengthen your stomach muscles in an indirect way, without needing to do sit-ups, which can be a bit hard on your lower back.

Rich! No, it's really hard! After finishing each set, blood will rush into my head! And my heart beats like no tomorrow! Feel like fainting! But the good news is, afterward i feel my body is lighter and there's this feel good thingy flowing! I can't describe it but it feels good!

Uncle got his wealth under Capitalism system. If under common prosperity Uncle & us should have common(same) wealth. right?

Just wonder which system is fair & just ?
A system that reward the fittest, hard working & clever person ( ie. Like Meritocracy system is one those )

Or

A system that cherish equitable among people. Everyone getting wealth equally without reference to their efforts, ability or IQ level.

Obvious traits of hypocrites.

They capitalise capitalism and enrich themselves, then they speak ill of the system.

DickyMe, to be fair I don't think Uncle anti Capitalism. He is only anti America as they going against China. Even now China still applying Capitalism as a model in their economy even though Xi slowly going toward socialism model as a way.

Qqq! Best to walk naked along the beach! Getting full exposure to the sun! But be mindful of conservative minded malaysians! Especially for old naked lady walking on the beach is consider a big 'suwei'!

GrowingRich

yep, tobby

the feelgood thing comes from the endorphins, them so called 'happy hormones' released during and after exercise

but you seem like new to this training thing, so, safer & better for you to go slow and not be overdoing it too early too fast, you could get injured

I've been at it for a long time, like decades, so I know a little bit about these things

Rich! Yeah, very new! Only like 2 weeks! Actually barbell belongs to my son! He gave it to me! He told me to do some squat with it! Squat seems like good exercise! Yeah, very careful doing it as my knee not young anymore! But it does feel good after completing all sets! No more headache! Somemore my 2 inches buddy is getting erected like when i was young! Well, at least my wifey is happy! I guess 2 minutes of pleasure really makes her happy!

Answer : Make sure to bath with dettol before copulation! Wear tongue condom and buddy condom! That should do the trick!

Haha Tobby,
I actually mean most likely your wife will be more happy to have a 30 minute to 1 hour of walking together holding hand with you rather than quote, "No more headache! Somemore my 2 inches buddy is getting erected like when i was young! Well, at least my wifey is happy! I guess 2 minutes of pleasure really makes her happy!" Unquote.

Rich! Thanks for your sharing! Seems you are quite knowledgeable about this weight training thingy!

2022-01-26 14:14

GrowingRich

aah, tobby, good to hear that now you're discovering the other 'extra' and 'strategic' benefits of strength training ... you want even more power?

ha ha ha, now, could be time for you to start checking these others out:

1. overhead pulldown: good for arms, shoulders, back, pectorals ('wing muscles')

2. simple arm dumbell lift (maybe also called 'missionary lift'?): for arms and shoulders

3. bench press: for shoulders, arms, biceps, chest

4. leg press: for legs, thighs, calves, glutes, tummy (indirect, but still effective), can substitute this for your squat (which is more stressful on knees, therefore less suitable for older people)

5. power walking: good for 'dissolving away' the soreness that you have picked up during your strength training session, also good for stregthening aerobic (cardio-vascular, or heart-lung) fitness. do gently at first, then you can gradually increase intensity as your fitness improves. do it on a different day from your strength training day. I only kept to one gym day a week + 2 - 3 power walking days a week (pre-covid times) it kept me fitter & stronger than many guys 25 years younger.

it's kind of a bit 'dull' but good, so you can download songs you like on your handfone to keep the boredom away while walking. start with slow music for warming up, then progress to faster and faster as you get warmed up and walking faster.

you can take periodic breath breaks if you need. but once you get to a certain fitness level, you might find it more beneficial to end this session at your own maximum doable walking speed.

2022-01-26 14:17

GrowingRich

only 2 minutes?

lol no problem. when you get to a different level of fitness, and eating a bit more protein (just ayam goreng, ikan goreng, beef, mutton, no need all those b00lkrap fancy stylo 'protein juice'), you can do 'seconds', sometimes on a good day even 'thirds', when you would be lasting a bit longer, or if you're lucky much longer, than 2 minutes ...

Answer : SsLee! You don't know my wifey! 2 minutes is more than enough! She says why do copulation for an hour, very tiring!

2022-01-26 14:39

My wifey enjoy driving! I rarely drive if she accompany me! She will whine and whine if i do the driving! I guess driving is her fetish! As for walking, better don't! Too embarrase to take her for a walk! She will burst into praise singing! Jesus Christ woman, can you keep your love for Jesus in church!

2022-01-26 14:42

Tobby

My fetish is buying 4D! Even winning consolation gives me climax! As for copulation, me and wifey not into it! I guess eating the same chicken rice over and over and over for decades lost it's passion!

2022-01-26 14:46

GrowingRich

it is actually the 'getting tired' and panting a little bit, like at least twice a week, and some movement every day, that is necessary and important for fitness and good health

if you're always avoiding 'getting tired', avoiding even some small physical activity, then you're not going to remain healthy and in good condition for very long

Answer : Hhmmm! Interesting!

2022-01-26 15:01

GrowingRich

yep, becos you need to be working out & pushing your heart and your lungs regularly, to sustain them in good condition for as long as possible

same also for your muscles and the rest of your body

but just remember to not overdo & overtrain when you're just newly starting

2022-01-26 15:12

GrowingRich

and if you suspect you got some medical problem, like heart disease for example, better to speak to your doctor first

2022-01-26 15:15

Tobby

Rich! I can guess that you have a healthy and fit looking body! Good for you! Keeping fit and healthy will also reduce risk of having preventable sickness! So investing in weight exercise is the best investment for health!

2022-01-26 15:16

GrowingRich

well, tobby, to be honest

if you see me doing leg press, you might be reeling with shock

I can push weights that only one or two other guys in the same gym would even dare to try, they also usually much much younger and bigger, and usually they'd give up fast

becos they always want to push too heavy too fast, before their legs are ready and strong enough for it, and they always rushing and skipping the warming up phase, which is necessary and important

then they end up 'unable to walk' for couple days or so, and they get 'leg press phobia' afterward ha ha

2022-01-26 15:40

GrowingRich

okay, tobby

good luck with your newly discovered interest in exercising & strength training

keep up da good work, man

I believed better fitness can only help a little bit in improving how long can his last last. The more important factors are a person emotions & psychological level. Another is frequently in copulation. practicing Practice made prefect. Hahahaha

My friend told that be can last for hours after every morning practising chinese breathing methods. Hahaha.

I laughed at him saying that you must have using Vixgra. He replied no.

Hahahaha

Aah, that means there is something that you do not yet understand so clearly, my friend

That is, when you are fitter and stronger, you also become calmer and more confident, both emotionally and psychologically, so that actually improves a lot of things about you in general
