I do lots of things.
I've been skateboarding for 25+ years. It keeps me in shape, but can also be detrimental when I get hurt, which is always, lol. Last April I had an ankle sprain that kept me from "really" skating for most of the warm months. It sucked.
I lift weights to keep overall strength in place, but I've become more concerned with lesser weight and more reps as heavy weight makes me a bit stiff and this is something that does not agree with my other activities. I also focus intensely on core workouts... many people underestimate the importance of this. I mix these with plyometrics, isometrics, low-impact cardio and stretching.
I also do a bit of hiking, rafting and climbing.
Diet is key here though. The best for me is lean (chicken, turkey, fish) meats and raw vegetables as much as possible. As I am a bit of a craft beer drinker, I have to be keenly aware of my "bad" intake.
