    What do you suggest one to eat for breakfast? I usually only have a coffee because it is easy.

      Hello Cindy,

      Thank you for contacting us. 

      Great to hear you are getting those workouts in – especially in the morning. when nothing that get in your way.
      You will often hear Chris say she eats a banana before her morning workout. Bananas are a solid choice because they give you good carbohydrates and fiber which gives you energy to work! A small piece of whole grain toast or english muffin with peanut butter is also a great way to start with energy. Both of these choices are easily digestible as well. I’ve heard people who have a protein shake, but I would struggle with that making me feel “too full” and distracting me from the exercise if it isn’t completely digested. Everyone is different.

      Something small before the workout is helpful and then you can finish after the workout!

      If you have any other questions, please chat, email, or call Customer Service.

    I am 59 years old, we have a hobby farm that I work on every day and I also do your great workouts. I hate the fact that even working out hard and using weights, I still feel like I am having a harder time staying firm – especially my triceps. Any advice? Thank you!

      Hello Marti,

      Thank you for contacting us. 

      Great to hear from you. Sounds like you are working with a great fitness plan! Way to go! That puts you far above your peers at the same age and you are going to be stronger than most.

      When it comes to our bodies as we age, \strength training is crucial and – when you continue to work at it – it will keep you fit and “toned” On the otherhand, there are certain things that come with age that we cannot control. For instance, the skin that sits above my knee is sagging a bit whereas I never saw that in my 40s. I wish it werent = I wish I could wear shorter dresses and shorts – but it’s a reality of aging. I was bummed about it for a short time, but I choose to focus on the fact that I do have strong thighs, despite the loose skin, and my legs are capable of amazing things for my age compared to most. Same with the back of the arms. Sagging skin might be in the cards for you no matter how much you work.

      In both cases I would say to pay attention to the areas that are bothering you. Lunges and squats will build up muscle in your quads which will fill the space under that extra tissue with a firm foundation. Get in your tricep dips and tricep extensions with something that really challenges you. Makes you sore! Build up the tricep muscle so it presses firmly on the skin that sits over it and you’ll have less sagging, Don’t be afraid of heavy weights!

      HAng in there – you’re doing great!
