Exercise Programs for Citizens Sixty and Over--Why Not?
Butts, Frank; Anderson, Gene
An outline is given of an exercise program for older adults which is designed to increase strength, endurance, and flexibility. Brief descriptions are provided of exercises progressing from modest tone-ups for flexibility to activities involving mildly strenuous physical efforts such as jogging, bicycling, and hiking. Suggestions are offered for participating in the program enjoyably and without strain. It is noted that the growing population of older adults should participate in such programs because exercise increases the ability to cope with stress, helps to maintain independence and can improve self image.
