What special exercises should I do as an older person?

Special Considerations

Generally, seniors exercise the same as younger people, but there are a few areas that tend to be weaker in older people and may need more work. One is neck flexibility, so you can see behind you when driving or cycling. Another is grip strength, so you can open jars and hold heavy objects. You've always been independent, and exercise can help you stay that way.
