There are two things that would benefit virtually everyone –strengthening and stretching.  It’s great that so many of us help our hearts by doing things like walking.  However, as we age, it’s very important that we also engage in resistance training.  Maintaining our upper body strength will help prevent bone loss, maintain good posture, and help prevent pulls and sprains.  “Resistance” comes in many forms and resistance bands are a good, safe way to build strength and increase stamina.

I could tell you a multitude of good things you could do for your health.  I can’t think of two better ones than remaining strong and flexible for as long as you can.  Make these two items a part of your health program and you will be running with, and picking up, those kids and grandkids for a long time.  Enjoy them!
