Do Fit People Make Better Drivers?

March 10, 2017

What's good for your heart is good for your brain!

Conditions that damage the heart or blood vessels increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. What's good for your heart is good for your brain!

Fifty percent of the middle-aged population and 80 per cent of people in their 70's suffer from arthritis, crippling inflammation of the joints, which makes turning, flexing and twisting painful.

Cross-Train Your Brain

Fitness experts often advise their clients to cross-train, or vary their workout and avoid repeating the same exercise routine day after day. Cross training challenges athletes, minimizes boredom, and maximizes results. Also, varying one's workout by focusing on a particular muscle group one day and a different muscle group or activity the next allows an athlete to rest muscle groups between workouts, which builds stamina.

Strength and Flexibility Concerns

A fitness expert can address strength concerns with a program that cross trains your body with the use of machines, free weights and bodyweight to develop a program to maximize your body type.

A trainer can also increase flexibility by using yoga or tai chi to promote ease of movement and balance. Add to this a healthy diet. Get plenty of omega-fats and eat fruits and vegetables across the rainbow. Eat foods that provide fuel and reduce inflammation. Drink 8 glasses of water daily. Deep sleep is critical for memory formation and retention. Most adults need at least 8 hours of sleep per night.

I know an 81 year old that continuously increases strength while maintaining a healthy weight and flexibility with 1 1/2 hours of organized training using a fitness expert and martial arts. Likes to have fun with antique cars and drives every day.
