I will wax lyrical about the importance of maintaining fitness as we age at a later date... for now, I just wanted to post some links to NHS Strength and Mobility Exercises. These are seated exercises for our Elders - the phrase Use It or Lose It could not be more apt as we get older. Too often I have seen patients plonk their bums down in a chair, and slowly and steadily deteriorate.
Yes, it's a bore to remember to do these exercises every day. But isn't it more of a bore to be stuck in a chair, through immobility rather than choice?
