Train Like An Athlete: 6 Ways How To Stay Athletic As You Age

We all go through it. You have to sprint or jump to catch something being thrown by you, you go to jump in and play some touch football, pick up basketball, etc. and you realize how long it’s been since you’ve done something athletic and you just can’t keep up or perform like you used to. It’s been quite a few years, you can really feel the lack of pop in your step.

For most of us out there, once we get past high school, our time spent doing athletic activities takes a pretty big drop. In the case of those who kept up doing more athletic options into their young adult years – those who played a college sport, got involved in rec sports or intramurals – you got a few more years of athleticism. This happens for a lot of reasons, but the simplest is that we just gradually do less and less athletic based things.

In this video we show you 6 ways that you can work to change that and take back your athleticism!
If you want a workout routine that is both science based and practical, we have two training programs:

1. Sustainable Strength – for those looking to get strong, fit and functional. This program uses a barbell and sessions usually last 50-75 minutes.
2. Foundational Strength – The lite version of Sustainable strength. This program doesn’t use a barbell and sessions usually last 40-60 minutes.

We also have a training service for those with a good program that just needs some additional help with mobility, stability, or rehab:
