Endurance activities should not make you breathe so agitated that you can not speak. Should not cause dizziness or chest pain.
• Do some light activity before and after your workout resistance to preheat and cool the body (eg, walking slowly).
• Stretch after activity of resistance, while their muscles are still warm.
• As you age, your body may not indicate the desire to drink when it needs water. In other words, you may need water, but not be thirsty.
• Drink fluids while performing any type of activity that makes you lose fluid through sweat. The general rule is: when you notice that you are thirsty, you can be almost dehydrated (low fluid). This rule is important all year, and especially important when it's sweltering heat, which is when dehydration is more likely. If your doctor has asked you to limit fluid intake, be sure to check before increasing the amount of fluids you drink while exercising. Heart failure and kidney disease are examples of chronic diseases that often require fluid restriction.
• If you exercise outdoors, wear several pieces, so you can add or remove clothing as needed.
• Use safety equipment to prevent injuries. For example, wear a helmet when bicycling, and wear protective gear for activities like skiing and skating. If you walk or jog, wear appropriate footwear for this activity.
When you are ready to increase the amount of exercise or activities, first increase the amount of time used for endurance activities, then increase the difficulty of these activities. For example: First, gradually increase the time to 30 minutes over several days or weeks (or months, depending on your condition) by walking longer distances, then start to walk over steep increases, or walk with more energy.
