On occasion I speak to people who want to get in shape, but they think a work out must be for a full hour. They also assume that short stints of exercise are not as beneficial. However, exercise is a matter of minutes, and any exercise is better than no exercise. It's important to follow exercise guidelines to lose weight and get in shape, but learn to break the rules to exercise especially if you don't have time to work out. Not sure how to fit in your workout? Think of the phrase "divide and conquer."
Running a half marathon at any age is an accomplishment, and completely feasible at 50. In fact, there are many 50-year-old men in better shape at 50, than when they were in their 30's. However, there are a few tips to help you ease into running a half marathon at 50.
Olympic weightlifters have the best training facilities and coaches, but they are not impervious to injuries.

During hot, humid summers my eczema flares up for outdoor exercise. The heat and sweat forces me back into the gym because I start itching. Since I do not plan on giving up exercise I found that reducing stress, different clothing materials and changing my hygiene products are the best way to minimize itchy, eczema flare-ups. Although I can't change the itching during exercise I can alleviate the itching with preventative care before and after.

Summer's arrival brings summer clothing styles, but some women won't wear them because they feel like their butt, hips and legs are not firm enough. Your butt, legs and hips will get loose, or flabby, sooner than later if you don't exercise. However, the solution to a firm lower body is a home-based fitness routine like the one below. The exercises will shape your legs, hips and butt for summer clothing styles, as well as the rest of the year.
If you're thinking it's too late to tighten your legs, hips and butt for the summer, think again.
