If I Knew Then What I Know Now--Exercise Cautions.
Some exercises are misused and abused by people of all ages, and increased age magnifies the bad effects of these exercises. Senior citizens in particular should be aware of the possible damage that some exercises, particularly when done unsupervised, pose to their physical health. This paper describes 56 common exercises and alternatives to those that are identified as dangerous to the areas of the head and neck, back, abdominal muscles, arms, hips, knees, and ankles. (CB)
