Live A Strong Life After Retirement – My Retire With Purpose Podcast Interview VIDEO BELOW
If you’re not familiar with the podcast, they use a pretty unique format.
As the name implies, the podcast is about setting up a purposeful retirement plan, including of course the financial aspects of retirement but also the non-financial side of life after retirement.
So what they do is, Casey will discuss financial stuff for 2 episodes in a row, and then he brings on a guest for the next episode to talk about a non-financial topic, such as wellness, nutrition, psychology, and of course fitness.
I had a blast with Casey as we explored what it means to be fit for life, the benefits of strength training (and why lifting weights isn’t just for young people), what a full-body workout for retirees and pre-retirees might look like and the proper diet to support your body’s needs.
In this conversation, Casey and I explore what it means to be fit for life and to be able to live life after retirement to the fullest.
We discuss the benefits of strength training (and why lifting weights isn’t just for young people), what fitness programming looks like over 50, and the benefits of tools and tech toys designed to encourage recovery.
From there, we dig into what a full-body workout for retirees and pre-retirees might look like, how to get started, and the proper diet to support your body’s needs.
In this podcast interview, you’ll learn:
- Why so many people suffer through life after retirement when they have the time and the resources to live, but lack physical ability and mobility.
- Why putting even 2-4 pounds of muscle on is a huge deal after the age of 50–and why you don’t have to train like crazy to achieve it.
- The reason I won’t let any of my coaching clients train more than two days a week.
- How to avoid getting hurt lifting weights.
- Why I’m is such a big fan of exercise machines despite their criticisms.
- The importance of nutrition–and especially protein–in a diet intended to build and keep muscle.
- What I mean when I say I believe not just in staying strong after 50, but staying strong forever.
