Men over 50 – How to Have Fun and Stay Healthy


It’s common knowledge that the older men become the more susceptible they are to getting diseases. New studies are showing that by the time men reach 65, the average male will have two or more chronic diseases. The best way to reduce the chances of getting such diseases is to keep fit and health. Here are our top 5 tips to keep you healthy as you break past the 50 mark.


Let’s get it on

Yes I am referring to the hit song by Marvin Gaye. Sex has long been known as an excellent way to not only keep your body healthy, but your mind too. Sex releases endorphins and neurotransmitters which improve your mood, while the act itself burns calories and works out a lot of the core muscles in your body.


Go hard or go home              

As we get older our muscles deteriorate at a much faster pace and we become weaker, a good way to counter this is to hit the weights and start lifting. You don’t have to become the next Arnold Schwarzenegger and lift the heaviest weight you can find, just doing compound exercises such squats, deadlift, and bench press will keep the fat off and get the blood pumping.


Drink alcohol

Wait a minute, I though this article was about keeping healthy?


Drinking just a unit of wine or a small glass of whiskey is fine. Both contain anti-oxidants which restrict the growth of cancer cells and thins our body’s blood stream to allow for better blood flow, reducing the chance of men getting heart attacks as they grow older. This is not an excuse to finish a bottle of red to yourself,  no more than 1-2 unit of alcohol per day is recommended.


Take up a combat sport

Contrary to what you may believe, a Judo, Ju-Jitsu or a Muay Thai gym are some of the most friendliest places you’ll find. Martial Arts gyms are widely known for their hospitality and being a close nit community, aside from learning to defend yourself, you will only not get fit, but make friends too. As we get older it’s important that we come into contact with more people and become more social, this has been proven to lessen the chances of choric diseases such as dementia and other mental illnesses. Two birds one stone as they old saying goes.


As each day passes we should do all we can to stay to stay fit and health, be it making love, lifting weights at the gym, or going into combat with another human being. So lift up your whiskey glasses and here’s to another 50 years of living on this wonderful planet!
