My strength training routine has become a matter of focus for me. I feel that when it comes to cardio, that’s the type of workout I’m most likely to do. I keep it up regularly. Same thing can be said for my work on balance and flexibility, as I practice yoga and tai chi on a steady basis. When it comes to maintaining muscles, the activities just don’t seem to naturally fit into my life, so I’ve decided to make them something I choose to do. Yes, they’re a chore, but they’re a necessary one.
