I'm just throwing in this idea of opening a new forum section on physical exercise, specifically tailored for the longevity buffs. Apparently, that's an important part of any longevity strategy and even of a strict, literal regime of CR. I've been searching around but, although there is a lot of material about exercise, it is scattered and the purpose is more general fitness or bodyweight loss or increase of strenght (the latter overlaps with longevity strategies in part). There are many angles to the issue, from the proper regimen (cardio or resistance or both?) to the proper exercises, to the cautions to undertake against injuries, to the more appropriate strategies in the various age ranges, to the specific trainings against sarcopenia and osteopenia-osteoporosis, to acquiring strength to avoid injuries, to acquiring muscle mass to improve metabolism and so on. Because of the width of the topic maybe a new section would be appropriate. We can link what appears to be relevant and credible advise. We can discuss the apparent contradiction of downregulating the anabolic pathways and building up mass and strength and propose suitable strategies to overcoem the contradiction. If a new section is not possible I'm going to expand this thread.
