How often should you workout after age 60? It is a good question that doesn’t have one correct answer for everyone. Everyone is at a different fitness level, age, or different needs overall. You need to determine how much you want to workout to achieve your fitness and health goals. So, the first thing you need to do is determine your goals.

When determining how much you should workout, you also need to determine what your skill level is. If you are a beginner, your workouts might not be as intense, which means your body won’t need as much time to recover. The most important thing you can do is LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. At any age group or skill level, if your body is aching and sore, you need to take the time to give your body a chance to rest and recover. Your body will tell you when you are pushing things too hard.

If you are just starting out, FORM IS KEY FOR BEGINNERS. If you are not working out as hard as a beginner, you can probably workout 5 days a week. It all depends on how hard your workouts are pushing your muscles. If you are intermediate, you are probably going to be putting a little more fatigue on your muscles and joints overall. So maybe just doing 4 days a week is good for you, to give your body a chance to rest and recover.

If you are advanced, and have been working out for a while, listen to your body. Most of you can do 5 workouts a week still, just listen to your body. Your muscles grow when your body is resting, not during your workouts. Intense workouts are key for breaking down your muscle fibers, which will make them grow back bigger when they are recovering.

Alright guys, that wraps up this video tutorial on how often should you workout after age 60. Make sure to subscribe to our channel for more videos on how to build muscle and lose fat at the same time after 50 years old.

Bill Hoare says:

I'm 58 and workout 4 times per week. Chest and triceps on Saturday, back and biceps on Sunday, shoulders on Tuesday and legs on Thursday. On my off days I'll do a little cardio and stomach. Watch your diet. Plenty of protein and get your carbs in you in the morning. It's good to have that boost start of the day.and don't eat past 6pm

Rene Medina says:

Cool video dude

Jim McGuy says:

I'm 63. Four days a week works good for me. I tend to go heavy. 5 to 8 reps to failure for the most part. I've been working out my entire life. That makes a difference. Not much different than when I was 18. Except I take more rest.

Paul Thorade says:

Wow I just found this channel and I love how you didn't give a one size fits all. I'm 59 and hitting 60 in September. I have my own gym at home and I lift 3 days a week, and cardio 5-6 days a week. On my lifting days I do anywhere from 10-20 mins on my rower. On non-lifting days 30-60 mins. For rowing advice there is Training Tall and DarkHorse Rowing on YouTube, both were collegiate rowers. I served in the Army Fort Bragg North Carolina and had to run every single day, 4 MI in 36 minutes or less. All this running fractured my tibias permanently. I switched over to an elliptical after I got out of the Army but those are so mundane, so I switched to rowing about 4 months ago best decision I ever made when it comes to cardio. I just want to say I really appreciate this video and you have a new subscriber.

Kova Stol says:

I started fitness over 50th and now filling much better, 3 , 4 time per week with moderate and average load per workout around 5-8 tonn.


This is me after 50

Your video applies to women too , 59 year Chinese Canadian made in Canada, Intermediate/advanced, Maintaining muscle and flexibility plus weight maintenance.. giggles, Ty – 3 year heart attack survivor RCA 70% blockage stent, AOK… Statins Just about killed me for three years

Philip Fraietta says:

62 here, 6' 3 1/2 weight around 225 i have been lifting since I was 15….I do a classic push on days 1 and 4 and pull/legs on days 2 and 5…..resting on days 3, 6 and 7. Using the Vince Gironda 8×8 for the large muscle groups and between 3 and 5 sets for smaller body-parts….sets are done with 15 second rests if I need to drop weight (plus 30 minutes of cardio each workout) or 60 second rests with only 20 minutes of cardio if strength and size is the goal.

Arne Husby says:

63 and bicycling is one of my hobbys. I also work out with for strength. I am not a beginner and I absolutely feel that I need more recovery now that I am older. It is not fun to work out when I am stiff and hurting. So thanks for good advice for us older but active men.

barraabus says:

71 here. after a lifetime of physical activity, ( cycling, hiking, surfing, building houses, (physically), and various other pursuits over the years), I fell into a slack period where I had no inclination for physical activity at all. Then one day , I went to pick up a hammer to do a small job, and reality hit home when I realized how much strength I had lost. So, it's back to the activity, and after 12 months, I'm reaping the rewards of my effforts, and have now set up a small gym at home, and enjoying it more every day…well worth the effort, creates a whole new meaning to life as you get older.

TheAuthority says:

Good advise within this video. I'm an older guy, I train 2 twice a week with weights and include one day of cardio (usually a long walk or stationary bike). Recovery is important for older guys, I usually have 1 – 2 days off after a workout over a 7 day period to recover. I use moderate weight with good form, I usually do 5 – 6 exercises per workout, for 4 sets – 12 reps. I add and/or remove exercises around every 4 weeks to keep things interesting. I workout very regularly for 6 – 8 weeks, then have one or two weeks off to rest my muscles and joints. Once a year around Christmas I take 4 weeks off all training. Then I start off slowly and work up the intensity over the weeks/months.

JW Long says:

At 69 and just getting back after about 15 yrs, I can definitely say for me, three days/week is too much pulling back to two a week for now.

Brian Courtice says:

It would have been helpful if you had broken down your workout split.
A beginner watching this might have assumed that you are working out your whole body 5 times a week.

Sully says:

Thanks Man 64 doing 5 days week something 7 but think your right feel better if take weekends off👍🏻

David Grech says:

Thank you for sharing your positive energy and hope you know how much I appreciate your channel. I got hit by a distracted driver and then went into a coma for three weeks afterwards a few years ago and I never would have survived it if I had not been in such good physical condition. Well I’m glad that I am alive and well and back in the gym and I look forward to seeing your next video 🙏👍

Janet Gilmore says:

At 81 I’m still totally addicted, started training at 17 years old and still at it ,this guy is telling it like it is,no B/S very refreshing .95% of what you see the chemically enhanced posers tell you is not reality. I can’t push the heavyweight’s I once could ,but higher reps is now the way to train. Time , effort and listening to your body will bring out a better you (from Billy G) in australia

xmradio11 says:

I'm 67 and love to ride my dirt bike. I've been riding since I was 15. That's my motivation for keeping in shape. Someday I may have to transition to a four wheeler but I want to put that day as far off as I can. I guess I'm still an adrenalin junkie.

Fastt Ed says:

John, I'm a 6 day week guy. Upper body 3days while alternating lower body 3 days. I "INVEST" 6 hours a week henceforth. I'm over 70 and still 'getting it done.'
