The essential new fitness plan for Baby Boomers who want to remain fit and healthy into retirement
Dr. Eric Plasker's breakthrough wellness plan and his book The 100 Year Lifestyle have served hundreds of thousands as a hub of reliable advice on realizing a long life, well lived. Now he takes the next step by setting forth a comprehensive fitness program for longevity—a workout for Baby Boomers who may not be as young as they used to be, but who are determined to get in shape and stay that way for life.
The 100 Year Lifestyle Workout is all about how to Get Your “ESS” in Shape™—that is, your Endurance, Strength, and Structure. Pinpointing the health problems that occur when your ESS is out of balance, Plasker shows how to exercise your body in each of these three areas. He provides specific ESS workout sequences for beginning, intermediate, and advanced exercisers, including step-by-step photographs. He covers the top fitness mistakes people make as they age, and provides lifestyle fitness strategies for lasting results as you age—from nutrition to getting back on track after a lapse.
