How else should I recover from workouts in my 40s?</h2> <p><i>The short answer</i>: Incorporate science-backed recovery methods.</p> <p>If you’re over 40, you don’t need a scientist to you tell you that your body doesn’t work like it did in college---you can probably just feel it.</p> <p>But recovering from workouts becomes more important as you age if you plan to exercise consistently <sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30560324" rel="nofollow noreferrer">20</a></sup>.</p> <p>Here are some science-backed recovery methods:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Hydration</strong>- How much water you drink has a profound impact on mental clarity and physical energy<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23899752" rel="nofollow noreferrer">21</a></sup>. Plus, adequate hydration boosts performance during workouts<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5987390/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">22</a></sup>.</li> <li><strong>Working on your flexibility</strong>- Due to injuries and wear and tear, the body’s joints naturally become less flexible over time. It’s called “age-related” flexibility, and it’s directly linked to decreased quality of life<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19839176" rel="nofollow noreferrer">23</a></sup>. Stretching and regular exercise keep ensures joints stay healthy and can move through their full range of motion<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29063454" rel="nofollow noreferrer">24</a></sup>.</li> <li><strong>Other forms of recovery</strong>- Alternative recovery methods can help your body get back to “normal” after a tough workout faster. For example, <i>cryotherapy</i> (also called “cold therapy”—a technique where you immerse yourself in extremely cold temperatures for several minutes), can reduce inflammation after workouts and injuries<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4698758/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">25</a></sup>. Along the same lines, massage increases blood flow to muscles, which may help reduce muscle fatigue<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15114265" rel="nofollow noreferrer">26</a></sup></li> <li><strong>Eating a healthy, balanced diet</strong>- See <a href="#subsection4">question #4</a> above for more on this.

Diet absolutely can help hasten recovery.</li> </ul> <h2 id="subsection6">6. Is warming up more or less important beyond 40?</h2> <p><i>The short answer</i>: More important.</p> <p>In your twenties, you might have been able to get away with jumping into a workout without warming up. But as we age, flexibility of muscles and joints might decrease<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3665513/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">28</a></sup>.

Here are 2 guidelines to keep in mind:</p> <ul> <li>Low-intensity cardio and light, movement-based stretches before a workout prepares your joints for exercise and may reduce your risk of injury<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18027995" rel="nofollow noreferrer">30</a></sup>. </li> <li>Longer, static stretches help you cool down and relax after a workout<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5999142/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">31</a></sup>. Because warm muscles are more easily stretched, this is the optimal time to do this type of stretching <sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12133860" rel="nofollow noreferrer">32</a></sup>.</li> </ul> <h2 id="subsection7">7. What other things should I do to get fit after 40?</h2> <p><i>The short answer</i>: Listen to your body.</p> <p>Listening to your body means not pushing through injuries, giving yourself a few extra minutes to warm up, or taking a lighter day if you’re not feeling up to an intense workout.</p> <p>This is important because consistency and enjoyment are both crucial for getting results<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3441783/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">33</a></sup> <sup><a target="_blank" href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3925973/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">34</a></sup>.
