Exercise and Aging: What You Need to Know to Stay Young and Healthy
Exercise, Blood Sugar, Aging, and Health
The clock ticks for all men and women, and with each tick comes change. For those who manage to avoid major medical problems, the changes are slow and gradual, but they do add up. Here are some things that aging can do to you — if you give up and let Time take his toll.
Some of the changes of aging start as early as the third decade of life. After age 25–30, for example, the average man’s maximum attainable heart rate declines by about one beat per minute, per year, and his heart’s peak capacity to pump blood drifts down by 5%–10% per decade.
That’s why a healthy 25-year-old heart can pump 2½ quarts of oxygen a minute, but a 65-year-old heart can’t get above 1½ quarts, and an 80-year-old heart can pump only about a quart, even if it’s disease-free.
In everyday terms, this diminished aerobic capacity can produce fatigue and breathlessness with modest daily activities.
Starting in middle age, blood vessels begin to stiffen and his blood pressure often creeps up as well. His blood itself changes, becoming more viscous (thicker and stickier) and harder to pump through the body, even though the number of oxygen-carrying red blood cells declines.
In other words: pay attention Now!!

Most Americans begin to gain weight in midlife, putting on 3–4 pounds a year. But since men start to lose muscle in their 40s, that extra weight is all fat. This extra fat contributes to a rise inLDL (“bad”) cholesterol and a fall in HDL ("good”) cholesterol. It also helps explain why blood sugar levels rise by about 6 points per decade, making type 2 diabetes distressingly common in senior citizens.
Aging is inevitable, but it has an undeservedly fearsome reputation. No man can stop the clock, but most can slow its tick and enjoy life as they age with grace and vigor. Jonathan Swift was right when he said, “Every man desires to live long, but no man would be old.” Regular exercise, along with a good diet, good medical care, good genes, and a bit of luck, can make it happen.
