Now that we are on the right trail, let`s see what is the prime age suitable to progress with physical activities. (Miles, L., 2007. Physical activity and health.)
IS AGE FACTOR SALIENT WHEN IT COMES TO WORKING OUT?
Let`s disclose the answer to the question straight away and the answer is no, age does not matter when it comes to engaging in physical activities be it a child or an adult, people get involved in physical activities at every stage of life. Even a toddler indulges in physical activities from crawling to walking or an old-aged person who is usually involved in walking or lifting weights, thus, age is not a particular factor that should be kept in mind while carrying out a physical activity.
However, when training on the strenuous level, age should be considered according to stamina and the capacity of physical activity. For example, a senior citizen who is physically not very capable should not indulge in strenuous physical activities however, on the other hand, a teen who is zestful and has the capacity to grow can indulge in such tedious training like lifting weights, calisthenics, high-intensity cardio, etc.
Now that we know what is the age to which one must involve while working out let’s have closer look at the other factors. (according to Warburton, D.E., Nicol, C.W. and Bredin, S.S., 2006.)
MORNING? EVENING? WHEN?
What is the best time to work out? Work out in the morning to lose weight? Or does working out in the evening can lead to weight gain? This is what we call “myths”.
Definitely, these day-specific routine have their own good consequences and health benefits such as working out in the morning can refresh and rejuvenate your day and would have a lot of time in hand to yield in other activities and on the other hand working out in the evening can help in storing a lot of strength which can help in performing better, but would not lead to drastic weight loss or gain and highly depends on the surplus or the deficit of calorie intake and your workout regime.
Therefore, every time be it a day, night, or evening involved in physical activity is not time-specific.
Therefore, be it day or night or any age group working out or involving oneself in physical activities is not specific to any of these matters. However, eating healthy, consistent is all that matters. As it is very well quoted that, “your future depends on what you do today and not tomorrow” thus, focus on a healthy lifestyle today in order to be the better version of yourself tomorrow.
