“Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley and Harry Lodge


I just finished a great book called “Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley and Harry Lodge.  If I can summarize, it explores aging and critical factors that can delay what we often think of as the inevitable signs of aging.  I’m a convert! 

The graph below is what we typically think aging will look and feel like:

 

This is the graph that Chris and Harry think should be the norm:

They believe we can have a thoroughly active life into our 80’s and 90’s by following Harry’s Rules, listed below:

1. Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life.
2. Do serious aerobic exercise four days a week for the rest of your life
3. Do serious strength training, with weights, two days a week for the rest of your life.
4. Spend less than you make.
5. Quit eating crap.
6. Care.
7. Connect and commit.

I’m convinced and am giving it at try.
