 abdominal core training,

And that truly is the core, right there.  With core strength, you can do anything.

I'm still not going to run unless a bear is chasing me. Fuk it, shoot everything else.  Well, let's add one to that - I'll run if I'm being chased by a CrazyAss Blonde.

One of those surgeries last year fused the joints in my big toe, as all the cartilege had been shredded by bone spurs, so I couldn’t run anymore if I had to. Ditto for my left ankle a month later. the good news is I can still walk and bike.

I would add some weight training to your legs too. You don’t have to do crazy weight but dead lifts (proper form!) and lunges with dumb bells will hit the important areas. If you can squat too.

Concept 2 mod.E rower. Average 5k meters on 30 min.  so far

Both good ideas. Thank you. Squats and dead lifts are out however. Neurosurgeons  orders. Back surgery was four years ago. I have a 14 speed bike that I use one speed on. I just leave it at the gearing with the most resistance to work the legs. I used to have a rower, I will check that Concept 2 out.

Made here with a large support base. For my age and distance I'm like 20 from the bottom 😨 there is a guy in that group that can do 5k meters in around 15 min. for about $1300.00 delivered from Rouge fitness

I am not sure about your level of fitness but when dealing with injuries I have always fell back on progressive calisthenics type stuff with HIIT and jogging mixed in.

 

This is all free stuff and goes over setting up a routine with progressions for calisthenics. It is geared around strength training but the whole concept is based off gymnastics progressions.

Update: Now that the opportunity has presented itself and my body has healed a year and a half removed from all my surgeries,  I started serious weight training in November. No big weights, staying at a max 200 pounds x 10 reps x 4 sets on the bench presses, and all the other exercises in proportion. Also at 70 have resumed training in Uechi-ryu. As a concession to my age, I no longer spar, but concentrate on katas and in-fighting exercises. The PT definitely has helped my handgun accuracy. My grip on that pistol is solid, even the 44 Magnum. I am shooting a minimum of once a week. Finally getting all the shooting I want!

You got it going on brother Sisco , now the wife goes on the rower also. Last year at this time the therapist had pinched the nerve on my shoulder. A tricept bar was left behind threaded steel. Throwing that around.

Exercise what is it?is it something we do as humans because we do not have a life style that keeps us in shape? is it because we now have every, type of machine that does our work for us? before I got sick I loved to run nothing big nothing fast 20 to 25 miles a week at 9 min pace but I am almost 70 now and I have all my life been very very fit I was a timber faller for 25 years and basically did 6 to 7 hours of cardio with a 25 lb chain saw and 15 lbs of axe, wedges etc etc 5 days a week I was so fit I could eat 3 to 4 thousand calories a day and never gain a oz because on my off days I was scouting for elk ,hiking, camping cutting fire wood or some other thing that kept me in shape which brings me to my point have a life that keeps you in shape you can not make in shape in a gym or anywhere else it is a state of being you do all you can do it is not about how many or how far it is do it each and every day..... I can still pack 100lb elk quarters for miles not as fast but i get there. A life of fitness in both body and mind will pay big dividends later in life and also you will have issues from wearing stuff out but hey think of all the stuff you did in your life and drink a beer and smile......

Said it all friend. Stuff wears out, but it wears out faster if you don’t use it. Hauling logs ruined my back, but made me strong as an ox. Back is fixed, got some pains, but I am in better shape at 70 then I was at 65. Surgeons fixed what they could, learn to live with what they can’t.

You fuckers impress me, like you have no idea.  I mean that.  I'm running down on 51 in month or so, and Ive abused my body so bad it's not even funny.  The shiit I've done to myself, I didn't realize, when I was doing it, and I'm paying for it.  Neck and back.  I'll never stop - you can't stop me, you can only hope to contain me, but I'm slower now than I was before - and that pisses me off. Everytime I slow down, I only want to get stronger, just to overcome what made me slow down.  I never had to battle this before, a I'm trying to find new ways to beat it down.  I hate it.

Inside every older person is a younger person wondering “WTF happened?”.

Some of us didn’t have the opportunity in our work years to live an outdoor life, so gyms are the next best thing. Still are at certain times. Give me a choice between being outside and a gym, I will take the outside. 

You can’t beat aging, but you can adapt to it. Just don’t let it win until the race is over.
