39 – What it Takes to Become Healthy and Stay That Way at Any Age

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastJune 26, 2014 – Episode 39 – Dr. Dave starts the show by answering a listener’s question about how long it should take to walk the “Magic 4” miles. Afterwards, Dave brings a remarkable guest into the studio! Dr. Michael Goldstein may be 63 years old by the calendar, but just wait until you hear what he does and how he can help you!
Jamie listens on her way to work and wants to know: “What about those 4 miles you talk about? How fast do I need to go? Do I walk or run?” 
Answer: Dr. Dave has done years of research and experimenting over the years. “Something happens to your body and psyche that happens when you hit the 4 miles distance. You can walk or run and speed is not THE most important thing.” Dr. Dave walks this in about one hour which is a 15 minute mile pace. Faster is okay, but you should really try to make this your goal to hit this. If you are just getting started, focus on an 18 minute mile, and work your way down over the weeks to 15 minutes. Give yourself 2-3 weeks to increase your pace by a minute per mile. Some super beginners, may even want to keep the watch at home for a while they are just trying to walk 4 miles without stopping. Note: 4 miles is 6.4 kilometers since we have listeners all over the world.
Dr. Michael Goldstein, is 63 years old, and a dynamo. He looks great and feels great. Dr. Dave had to have him on the show. He is a living example of what Dr. Dave talks about every week. He is running, working out, skiing black diamonds, biking, climbing, backpacking. He is a grandfather, doesn’t have an ounce of fat on him, super fit, and can run circles around 40 year olds! Dr. Mike was a great guest! Give the show a listen and hear the great conversation and wisdom of both Dr. Mike and Dr. Dave!
“You want to feel good and healthy. You want to feel good in the morning when you wake up,“ says Dr. Michael Goldstein. When he was 28, he lost an important tennis match to someone older than him, because he just ran out of gas and wasn’t as healthy as he thought. So he decided to run 10 days in a row to see if he could make it work in very busy life. He found a way to make this happen and it changed his life.
“Running made me feel better, gave me more energy, kept my weight down, more stamina, and helps with all other sports, and controls stress,” says Dr. Mike. Running is one of the most efficient exercises you can do and you can do it anywhere at any time.
Dr. Dave asks Dr. Mike: “You have a busy busy life. You are one of the busiest people I know. How do you stay disciplined? One of the biggest things I hear from listeners is that they just don’t have time. Give us your secret!”
Dr. Mike answered: “First find an activity that you like well enough to keep doing it. It could be running, walking, biking. You want to enjoy the activity itself and the benefits you will receive from it.”
Next, it helps if your partner/spouse makes fitness and health a priority. It changes everything when you have a partner that believes in this. Now, you may not be able to work out together, but if your health and fitness are a priority it changes your whole life and relationship.
Dr. Mike now works out with a personal trainer once a week too. He loves the motivation and someone to keep pushing him and showing him new things. Also, Dr. Mike and his wife are going to a running form clinic at a local running store together. They videotape you and help you with your technique head to toe to be more efficient and comfortable.
Anytime you are comfortable is the best time to work out. However, there are many studies showing that the most successful people work out first thing in the morning before the day fills up with things, people, events, and busy-ness. You are making it a priority and starting your day right! Also, often in the morning – especially during summers, it is a much nicer temperature.
Sit in a cross legged position. Now get up not using your hands at all to get up. Can you do it? If you cannot or are struggling, you need to strengthen your core.
Running does not do much for your upper body. Pull ups, push ups, balance balls, and resistance bands are a great way to work out your body with just your own body weight. Dr. Dave also does crunches, planks, and squats daily. You also can do this anywhere not matter where you travel.
Dr. Michael Goldstein challenges you to practice balancing daily. Each day when you brush your teeth, try balancing on one leg. It is harder than you may think. Keep practicing and keep getting better. Awesome tip of the day!
Dr. Mike does stretching and wishes he was more flexible. Dr. Dave and his wife Yoko do yoga daily. Anyone can start at any level in any way. All the poses have modifications for all levels. Make stretching and yoga can prevent and eliminate pain. Stretches very important to Dr. Mike are quad, hamstring, and calf stretches. Some people stretch before and after exercise. Dr. Dave thinks it is fantastic to start your day no matter if you are working out or not that day.  A great therapy to build into your life is regular massage therapy. Massage therapy can be curative and preventative. It really can make your life better.
If you are not happy with your job, your relationships, and your life – this will manifest in your body and health. “When the relationships in your life are more important than your possessions in your life – you will be happy,” says Dr. Goldstein. “Too many people lose sight of what is important. Your possessions will not make you happy, your relationships will make you happy,” says Dr. Mike.
Dr. Goldstein says, “Someone will always be better, strong, richer, healthier than you. Just worry about bettering yourself! Wake up each day and make yourself and your life better!”
