When they reach the age of 35, the most natural thing is for a person to enter a world full of routine, family, work and very little time for sports and outdoor activities. Also, it is at this age that the body begins to weaken, which leads to a deterioration in the physical condition.
To avoid rapid deterioration, it is very important to practice physical exercises, with which you can feel good and above all you can maintain a healthy body for many years. But of course, playing sports at age 35 is not the same as playing sports at age 15.
Because before doing anything, it is important to get a medical examination. The recognition will show you whether you are in good health or if you cannot do some types of exercise. For this reason, the Coordinator of the Sports Medicine Unit at Vitas Hospital, Dr Lvaro Herrera, wanted to provide a series of tips for doing exercise safely:
- 1. A previous sports medical examination. In addition, it is convenient to do this with a capacity suitable for the activity to be performed. During these examinations, you can consult a doctor about the type of physical activity or exercise that is most appropriate for each.
