Quick Tip # 83--Use the Big Rope
As often written, the best conditioning for hard riding is to ride hard. Certain other exercises really benefit a rider--barefoot jogging, kettle bell sessions, and posting on a large exercise ball really help with stamina and in building strength in riding muscles.
I just found a new one that I love--the battling rope--a 1.5 inch rope fifty feet long. There are a range of strength building exercises that can be done with the rope. Look up Battling Rope on you tube for examples.
Completely aside from conditioning for riding , it is important for older people to maintain their strength--you might end up having to tote around a hefty grandchild.
