What are some exercises seniors should avoid?
I’m a senior, and in my opinion, there’s no exercise that any senior should avoid doing as long as the build-up is gradual, allowing the body to adjust and exercise within the boundaries of each individual’s limits. It doesn’t matter whether the exercise is high intensity or endurance type. The heart is the most crucial. If you can get it in excellent shape, you’ll have half the battle won. The rest will get determined by your joints, muscles, and willingness. Try doing strength exercises. What are the chances of injury if you only do bodyweight exercises first, beginning with the most manageable level and gradually progressing? Please don’t tell me that doing a wall or knee push-up might cause injury if you can’t do a single standard push-up. Only amateurs with many egos would attempt weighted squats and deadlifts before mastering the bar. The same will be valid for other complex movements. There is no need to comment on isolation exercises.
