If you can exercise strenuously after age 40, then you are doing other things to keep you healthy and your body in good shape, like supplementing vitamin C and CoQ10, etc. So is exercise affecting telomeres, or these other things?

Exercise is great for health to lose fat, you need to diet/watch caloric intake
as having good testostrone/androgen levels, are going to help telomere length indirectly as androgens help TERT
ie
exposure of TERT-deficient hematopoietic cells to androgens resulted in an increased level of TERT activity(Telomerase reverse transcriptase )

Sex hormones, acting on the TERT gene, increase telomerase activity in human primary hematopoietic cells
