    So train. Don't just sit on your ass!

    If you're making up excuses like, "Oh, I only train twice a week because the rest of the time I'm with the girlfriend/husband/kids/dog, so I just don't have time," then you're making excuses.

  10. Stretching muscles will help you remain mobile late into your life

    In the beginning, before the stretch it is normal, we have this very tight back, but after five minutes it becomes more flexible.

    We are going to move up to the knees, then we are going to go further down the front of the leg. We are going to make a little bend at the hip. If you can do a little twist from your hips, you will come right up to the knee, so you want to keep it moving towards it. Just don't …
