Aging is a natural process; but exercises can be of help to make a person look younger, healthier and stronger. Further loss of muscular strength, bone density and lung capacity can be controlled by incorporating proper exercise in our daily routine. Joints must be trained for flexibility and stretching. To rejuvenate the aged cells and reverse the aging process, the body produces growth hormone (HGH). HGH can be called a fitness hormone for middle aged persons and seniors. External stimuli like anti aging exercises stimulate the body into producing this hormone. Check out more on various anti aging exercises and how they can help you look younger and fitter.


Starting anti aging exercise

While choosing the kind of exercise, we should remember that we have to deal with a number of issues that concern with aging. Improving flexibility and cardiovascular system and general strengthening are the three most important factors that must be borne in mind while choosing exercises. Take the advice of a health care provider before embarking on any fitness regimen. Start with simple stretching exercises. This stretching prepares your body for more strenuous exercises like aerobics or working out with weights. Even for the simplest cardiovascular exercises, one has to start with stretches and then take to walking and go on to more strenuous exercises. At the same time these exercises will certainly help to build strength. It will take some time for you to see the results.


Anaerobic Exercises

Researchers have found that exercise-induced HGH is released by the body during anaerobic exercises. Whereas endurance training is stressed in aerobic exercises, short but high-intensity sprint training is given prominence in anaerobic exercises. The HGH released by the body helps to reduce fat and muscle toning takes place easily. It also tightens up the skin, reducing wrinkles. Adults find HGH an energy booster.


A research study carried out by the American Heart Association revealed that anaerobic exercises help in lowering the risk of heart diseases considerably. The more intense your exercise regime, the less is the risk for you becoming a heart patient. Anaerobic exercises keep the heart and blood vessels healthy and hence blood flow to the brain is enhanced and the risk of stroke is reduced. According to a recent research, to keep their brains alert, seniors need to involve themselves in medium or low intensity activities. According to new studies, sprinting increases HGH level by almost 530%.


Anti aging exercise for the face


Facial exercises lend your skin a smooth youthful look. The supportive facial muscles should be well toned in order to lend an ageless look. Like any other exercise, facial exercise should be done regularly to achieve good results. The appearance of the eyes will reveal the fact that you are old or tired. Eyes, called windows of our soul, should be free of character lines, crow’s feet or laughter lines and there must be firm, unlined and smooth skin around the eyes. If you notice bags under the eyes that create an aged, unhealthy look you need to take some extra care to remove that bagginess and droopy eyelids by doing facial exercises.


Spend ten valuable minutes a day to tighten the skin around the eyes. You can notice a change in the bagginess around the eyes if you spend those invaluable ten minutes in exercising, so that the delicate and thin skin on your eyes gets the most attention. The skin cells that were lazy and dormant get a boost by these facial exercises and they are stimulated to produce lubricants and natural oils.


Anti aging eye exercises

  • Press two fingers on each side of your head, near the temples and repeat the action of opening and closing the eyes for five or six times rapidly. This will help tone the muscles of the eyes.
  • Sit in a relaxed posture with both the eyes closed. By repeatedly looking up and down for around 10 times with the eyes still closed, you can do this facial exercise.
  • Sit in a similar posture as the above. Lift your eyebrows with the eyes still closed, and stretch your eyelids down and remain in the same position for five counts. Relax for a while and you can repeat it for five times.
  • Sit in a relaxed posture with eyes open. Closing your eyelids about half way, lift the eyebrows. You can now open the eyelids such that the white portion of your eye is seen over the iris.
  • Look straight in an upright sitting posture. With the eyes wide open look up and down for ten times. Then look left and right without moving the head or the body. You can repeat it ten times.

Anti aging exercise for forehead

  • Frowning is also a kind of exercise for the forehead. Bring your eyebrows close to each other and frown. Lift your eyebrows, opening your eyes as wide as possible. Repeat this exercise five times.
  • Lie on the bed and look up the ceiling with the head hanging over the edge of the cot. You can raise your eyebrows with the eyes wide open. Repeat these ten times, relaxing for a while in between.

Anti aging exercises help in keeping fit, physically and mentally. Emotionally, feeling good about yourself is an important factor as you get older.
