Learn From Olga a 94 yo Track Star

Stay on Your Feet

At home—a tidy suite in the ­lower level of her daughter’s house—Olga rarely sits for long.

Simply standing up more is the best thing sedentary people can do to start becoming healthier, maintains Joan Vernikos, Ph.D., the former director of Life ­Sciences for NASA and ­author of the book Sitting Kills. The painless act of rising from your chair pumps blood from the feet to the head, and tunes the vestibular system, which helps maintain blood pressure and keeps you steady on your feet.

Even a regular morning jog can’t compensate for being inert the ­other 23 hours of the day, research shows. Extended bouts of inactivity have been found to increase subjects’ risk of serious afflictions—including hypertension, blood clots, and even some types of cancer—no matter how “fit” those subjects were.

People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel. (Oct 16, 2013)

Functional fitness: Walking, housework, being on your feet (a standup desk if you sit all day), etc. are the best. Strenuous exercise is counter productive until you lose the body fat.


TurboCharged by Dian and Tom Griesel is my bible when it comes to diet and exercise.
