The onset of gradual, natural physical decline starts earlier than most people would expect, from around 35-40 years old, but accelerates from the age of 50 onwards. The principal physical changes include:
Being in good physical condition and staying active slows down the rate of these changes. Resistance training is highly recommended to reduce the effects of ageing on the neuromuscular system. In addition, regular weight-bearing exercise has been shown to help maintain and build bone mass. Exercise also contributes to stronger muscles and improved balance and agility. This has very practical lifestyle benefits, such as assisting in fall prevention or avoiding the acquisition or development of injury.
