You know exercise is important for maintaining a healthy weight and a healthy body.

Did you know that daily routine can also turn back the clock? There are many different types of workouts that will reverse the signs of aging, making you look and feel energized and more youthful. The staff at Vein Specialists of the Carolinas has a few suggestions on some of the best workouts to combat aging and get you into shape at the same time.

Cardio Workouts

Cardiovascular exercise improves mitochondrial function, which helps the cells of the body to produce more energy. This function typically slows down as we age, so revving up the process can also give you a youthful boost. Get a fitness tracker and keep track of the number of steps you take every day. Beef up your count with daily walks or jogging that gets your heart pumping and benefits the rest of your body as well.

Resistance Training

Whether you do resistance training with weights or the weight of your own body, this type of exercise is essential for strong muscles and bones. You may not realize it when you are pumping that iron, but weight training also lights up your muscle and revs up the metabolism for more effective weight loss. If you want to sculpt lean muscle without the bulk, reduce your weight and add more reps to your routine.

Tai Chi

Tai chi is an effective way of improving balance and flexibility, which serves to reduce falls and injuries as you age. This type of self-defense training teaches slow, focused movements that actually bring you to a state of peace and calm. It has been called “meditation in motion,” which can be useful in combating the toll stress can take on your body over time.


Like Tai chi, yoga is effective in promoting balance and flexibility, important components in preventing injury in the later years of life. This type of meditation is also effective in stress management, which takes much of the strain off your body physically and mentally that can accelerate the aging process. Yoga also strengthens the body, which can help prevent osteoporosis and other conditions related to aging.


If you are concerned about starting an aerobic workout program due to the impact on your joints, swimming may be the perfect solution. This workout is absolutely no impact, as your body is buoyed and protected by the water. At the same time, your lungs, heart and muscles will get an excellent workout, giving you all the benefits of cardio exercise without concern about injury. If you are not a fan of swimming, water aerobics are another effective way to keep your body in shape and ward off the aging process for as long as possible.
