Men in Their 40s

By the time you’re in your 40s, it all becomes about your body’s pliancy. Once you lose the ability to stay flexible and balanced, you start to develop frailty—and frailty is what really hurts us when we get older. So I would spend more time doing yoga or balance activities, like doing exercises with your eyes closed. To improve your balance, do this simple test. Stand up straight with your armsfolded across your chest, close your eyes, and raise one foot, bending the knee at a 45-degree angle. Set a goal balancing for 15 seconds.
