yes, and also, as you grow older and more experienced in your job
you can also be burdened with more difficult and time-consuming task
that takes away more of your time and mental attention from ma training.

in having and keeping a job, basically one is exchanging ones time for money.
i think unless one is able to have some form of income with control of one's time
it is very difficult to devote prolonged and consistent training regime.

well if you are training like an old and infirm person that just makes it worse. Make the time you have count and don't dilute the quality of your training by trying to do a million forms.

If you want kicking routines here is an interesting form but not sure this works well for those over 65 (I played it many years back):

新澤西武壇宗師陳長霖所傳「八卦腿」,因可訓練手足四肢,故又稱四象腿或四象拳,為劉雲樵大師所傳承下來八卦掌體系中的第二套拳法,此套拳法,腿法達十七式之多,除有擺蓮、前蹬、後蹬(虎尾腿)、側蹬(鳳凰展翅)外,尚有須縱跳的二起腳與旋風腿,更有要伏地的後掃蹚腿(金蛇盤柳),頗為難練,但若能用功苦練,則不但能身法輕靈,且功力體力均可增長,實為磨練初學者的好拳套。八卦腿也是新澤西武壇梅教練最討厭的一套拳!
Bagua Tuei, designed to train specifically the four limbs, also known as the “Four Element Fist”. This is the second Bagua form in Liu Yun-Qiao’s Bagua system. There are total of 17 different kind of kicks in this form. This is a considerable difficult form to train; but once proficient with it, one can benefit from this form tremendously. WuTan NJ coach Mei hates this form!
