This Week's Ask Gilad: Suggestions For Older, Fit Adults

Welcome to "Ask Gilad" - a weekly blog written by Fitness Hall of Fame member Gilad.  Thanks for reading.

Question:  Dear Gilad, I am 74 and have difficulty finding exercise DVDs.  The ones for seniors are too easy and boring.  (I have been working out for decades) but watching exercisers in their 20's is meaningless.  What do you suggest for older adults who are fit? 

Answer:

  Sounds to me like you are in excellent shape! But naturally at 74 we cant do what we did at 24 and I'll take the liberty to suggest that we wouldn't much want to either..

In regards to recommending home workouts for you I will suggest my Ultimate Body Sculpt series (3 DVD's) I think you will find all 3 workouts challenging enough without putting excessive stress on the joints and with me you know you'll have fun! give it shot!  Gilad

Dear Gilad:

I have been doing your exercises for the past 30 years. They are great and no fuss, no muss.

Which cardio and strength DVD's of yours do you recommend for a 66 year old male (my husband) on high blood pressure medication? Of course he will check with his doctor first but he exercises regularly. I think a good cardio and strength DVD would be good as long as not too straining.

Appreciate the time you take to answer this question which I'm sure many would appreciate as well.

Dear Laurettte,

There are 3 DVD's that I would like to recommend to your husband. I'm assuming he is in fair shape since you mention that he is exercising regularly.

'Cuts and Curves' for overall toning, 'Interval Training' for cardio and toning and 'Phenomenal Abs and Core' for the mid section. I believe these would work for him and of course he can always take it at his own pace and build up to the whole workout if he finds it too challenging at first. 
All the best! - Gilad

Dear Gilad:

Hi Gilad, For consistent weight loss, what is your recommendation for working out? How many days a week, for how long and what kind of exercise - cardio, strength, both? Any other advice on losing weight would be appreciated. Thank you - you're the best!

Dee 


Answer:

The best advice I can give you is to start my Quick Fit System which is available right here on the Collage web site.

The system which includes 7 workouts ranging from 20-40 minutes each, breaks down the perfect balance between cardio and toning exercises and comes with my "Eat Right Now" nutrition guide that will help you shed off those extra pounds without deprivation!

The training guide is based on 6 days a week with one day for rest. The program is a 12 week program and its progressive getting a little more challenging from week to week. It also has a maintenance program to keep you in motion after you complete the 12 week cycle. We also have a support system for Quick Fit System users on Face Book

Dear Gilad:

I have used your videos since 1984 and have always loved your wonderful sense of humor and great cueing. Some of the exercises that you have within your DVD's at this time of my life ( 64 but still on top), that I cannot do, I find myself repeating the ones that I can, especially in some of your Ab and Lower Body Toning Segments and aerobic workouts. I am hoping I do not have to be able to do every single one to receive the rewards I hope for. What are your comments?

Joyce 


Answer:

I always recommend that people adjust and modify their workouts based on their current shape, fitness level and injuries. You are doing the right thing by adjusting the workout to your level, it is the smart thing to do!

I absolutely LOVED your Step Aerobics video (Gilad's Step Aerobics). Do you have plans to do another one? That video is "athletic" choreography (not "dancy") and gives a GREAT workout! Please consider doing another one!!

Lisa 


Answer:

Lisa, unfortunately we do not have any present plans to release a Step Aerobics follow-up. But in the future, you never know...
