In this episode of the My Life series, I talk about the role strength training plays in optimal living. What are the benefits of strength training? How has my strength training routine changed over the years? How do I motivate myself to work out? What exercises do I do in order to improve functional mobility, reduce injury, and age gracefully?

I cover all of this and more. You won't want to miss it!

Here's what my exercise routine looks like over the course of an average week, as discussed during the episode:

  • Days 1 through 6
    • Stretches (yoga, sitting solution) - 10 to 15 minutes
    • Calisthenics (push ups, pull ups, handstand push ups, squats, plank) - 1 set/exercise until failure, 5 to 10 minutes
    • Walk - 60+ minutes
    • One of the following:
      • Sprints - 3 days/week, 8 sprints/day, 30 seconds/sprint
      • Restorative exercises (sitting solution, yoga, gymnastic strength training) - 2 days/week, 60 minutes
      • Mow the lawn (push mower that is not self-propelling, hilly yard) - 1 day/week, 45 minutes
  • Day 7 (a day of rest)
    • Stretches (yoga, sitting solution) - 10 to 15 minutes
    • Leisurely walk - 20 minutes
