i'm 71 and i exercise 6 days a week for about an hour and have done that and more all my life. i change my routine about every 2 months. right now i do a 15 minute 4 mile exercise cycle ride, 18 stretching/yoga exercises, then i do interval training for 20 minutes using jakes tower, dumbbells, and kettlebells. i do 3 exercises back to back, short rest and continue on for a total of 30 exercises, working all muscles, but concentrating more on legs, back , chest and core. i use an interval timer watch. i do this routine 3 days a week. the other 3 days i do 33 stretching/yoga/core exercises after my 15 minute bike ride. my weight has never varied more than 5 or 6 lbs for 40 years and i recommend all seniors get into exercising. my uncle is still exercising daily and he turned 102 last march.
