  Anti-Aging Exercise in 20 Years Younger by Bob Greene

Bob Greene is an exercise physiologist  and certified  personal trainer– whose most Atni-aging Exercisefamous client is  Oprah Winfrey.  His latest book, 20 Years Younger, is the perfect  choice for  this week’s focus on exercise.   Author Greene offers an anti-aging plan that starts with exercise and expands to nutrition, stress reduction  and skin care.

The book begins with by sharing studies that highlight  the wide range of exercise related benefits including improved mood, increase in brain volume, stress reduction, stronger muscle and bone, reduced risk of heart disease, increased immunity,  reduced inflammation and of course everyones favorite,  weight control.

His anti-aging exercise plan is ambitious.  Part 1 hits all areas of fitness that affects aging– flexibility, strength, stabilization, agility, balance, and cardiovascular endurance.   Part 2  allows you to follow s much of the program as feels comfortable.  Part 3  integrates  what Greene calls  lifetime sports  into  daily life and  to make exercise fun and social.  Nice touch. He has a small collection of recipes that  look tsty, but not the sort of thing you  would cook everyday.  For recipes, my current favorite is still Small Changes by Teri Gans, but the two  books complement ech other.
