Depending on who you listen (or what you want to believe) there are more strategies for “staying fit” and living a healthy lifestyle than you can shake a stick at (aerobic exercise, strength training, high-intensity interval training, CrossFit, walking, etc.). But Chris Crowley and Henry Lodge have broken it down to seven (7) rules you need to follow to stay young (at heart) and put aging on the back burner. These rules will allow you to live a longer, stronger, healthier, and sharper life.
- Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life.
- Do serious aerobic exercise four days a week for the rest of your life.
- Do serious strength training, with weights, two days a week for the rest of your life.
- Spend less than you make (duh).
- Quit eating crap!
- Connect and commit.
