Here Are The Exercises You Should Avoid

Even though seniors can do a lot of workouts and be completely fine, there are some exercises that might not be suitable for everyone. The reason why experts recommend older people avoid all of these exercises is that they are more likely to get injured if their form is not correct.

Besides that, some types of workouts can put additional unhealthy pressure on older people diagnosed with joint pain, posture issues, atrophied muscles, and balance problems.

If you want to have a risk-free exercise routine, here’s what you should avoid if you’re over the age of 65: weighted squats, abdominal crunches, bench and leg press, upright rows, long-distance running, power clean, high-intensity interval training, deadlifts, and rock climbing are some of the exercises you shouldn’t do.
