My exercise quintuple for 50+ is strength, interval & functional training, balance & flexibility

My observation over the last 20+ years at the gym is that the over 50s rarely actually train. They float about doing different activities which return little value for the time they commit to exercise. For example, too much cardio, too much flailing about with weights, too little intensity, too many classes that are no more than colour and movement such as boxing classes.
