Do you exercise safely?

 You hear it all the time. Exercise, exercise, exercise. It's important for cardiac health, balance, strength maintenance, weight maintenance, and a variety of other health goals. And this advice applies to people of all ages, including folks over 60, although seniors who begin an exercise program should do it under a doctor's supervision, start slowly, and gradually increase.

But one thing I haven't seen before is advice regarding the safety of some exercises for older adults. So a recent article on the Silver Sneakers website was of special interest to me, and I think will be worth your time to review.

 Here's the link:   The 7 Worst Exercises for Older Adults

Happy push-ups!
