The US Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a health advisory recommending twerking for seniors.
The advisory states “People over 50 may want to consider adding twerking exercises to their workout routines. As people age stiffer joints, slower recovery from injury and the loss of lean body mass are among the perils facing seniors.”
“It’s more challenging with age but if you twerk you can maintain your lean muscle to about age 70. We recommend approximately 20 to 30 minutes of twerking two to three times a week. Then try to have an equal amount of lap dancing four to five days a week.”
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said “Regular twerking activity, rather than a sedentary lifestyle, has the potential to minimize the physiological and psychological changes that occur with age, in addition to limiting the progression of indifference and infertility.”
She added “Seniors, retirees and the elderly can benefit from sexualized dancing, and although the desired results may take longer than for younger adults, success can be similar if given enough time.”
