Between ages 50 and 70, sedentary people lose 30 percent of their muscle strength—the equivalent of 0.4 pounds of muscle per year. That can leave you frail and unable to do simple things such as climbing stairs easily. You can counter this decline by strength training for just 30 minutes, two or more days a week. After only 18 to 20 weeks of training, older adults can expect to add about two pounds of muscle and to increase strength by 25 to 30 percent.
Follow the buddy system
Men, especially as they age, tend to become solitary beasts, much less likely to form deep, lasting friendships than women are. That, researchers say, can be detrimental to well-being and health. In fact, the lack of positive social relationships is comparable to smoking and alcohol consumption for increasing mortality risk. Make an effort to cultivate friends — both new and old — and spend more quality time with family.
Bone up with a beer
A nice cold beer is not just refreshing; it may also help strengthen bones. A 2013 report notes that the barley and hops in beer make it a good source of the mineral silicon, important for bone formation and health. Even better: The type of silicon in beer, orthosilicic acid, is extra easy for your bones to absorb.
