#227 – 50–59-year-olds Part Four Health Fitness Nutrition and Age of Tradespeople with Dimitri from Pure Motivation Fitness

Part Four –50–59-year-olds. #FitnessFridays with Dimitri Giankoulas

This show begins with life stresses, as you get older, you have challenging moments in life, a divorce, separation, loss of a parent or parents, loss of employment and how this can affect your health, mentally and physically. At 50 you need to ask yourself are you doing this for your kids or yourself? Yes, you need to be a role model for your children, but you also have to be selfish, I am 50 now, I want to live a high-quality life for the next 30 plus years, that requires discipline and work.

Heart Health, stress contributes to bad heart health, I’ve got all these things happening, life, do I get drinking, taking up vices and hurting myself and others or do I jump into exercise, but where do I begin? It all begins with data, your foundation, where are you at right now? Actual work, begin with Calisthenics, that will allow your body to build, adapt, and grow, again, calisthenics are exercises that use your own body weight. Dimitri discusses proportions, he wants the 50’s to work the back more than the front, 60/40 split and it’s because the world is designed for the back, pull and push actions throughout our day.

Adaptation is a beautiful thing for the human body. Take a human without fuel and make it work out, it will have to adapt, and you want the body to adapt and in your older year’s adaptation can become negative, where they wake up and start the day incorrectly, have a cigarette, coffee, donut, that is all adaptation. In your 50’s it’s a wakeup call, you can decide to wake up and live life to the fullest or you can give up and accept this is my life, no matter what, it falls on you to make that decision. Will you conform to life, or will you transform?

Dimitri feels the fear at 50 is more detrimental than when you were in your 20’s. In your 20’s, your 30’s, you can make those mistakes, you can have those failures, take your 40’s to fix things and carry on. But in your 50’s it’s easy to have that mindset, I’m old, I can’t do it, my life is ok, I’m fine. Your 50’s doesn’t have to be that way. Move 3X per week for 45 mins, walk the dog, swim, exercise, you have to meal prep Sundays and Wednesdays, and you must journal, make 10 mins of your life belong to you, reflect on you and your life, every day by yourself. You will do this for 90 days and we promise you, your life will change, and you will see weight loss, you will feel better, move better, be a better human being.

We wrap up this show discussing breathing, look into 3B Breathing, Brace Before your Breath.
