Getting exercise

4 posts in this topic

The GP.com FB page is currently featuring an article on the value of stretching for those over 50:(ok, yeah, the link says "seniors" and I thought that stage began at 62, but whatever):

https://www.grandparents.com/health-and-wellbeing/exercise-and-de-stress/stretching-exercises-for-seniors

Now I'm wondering... do you do stretches of any kind? Or do you prefer to work out at the gym? Or go jogging? Or?? IOWs, is exercise a regular part of your routine? And if so, what type(s)?

Had two knee replacements in 2016 (June and October), so I do work out at the gym pool (salt water and slightly heated).  I do stretching in the pool and run laps and work out with the pool weights.  Ride the bike using the pool noodle.  Also use the sauna for the nice heat and to dry off.  LOL

I haven't found time to exercise yet. Still adjusting to the increased responsibilities of having my grandson. Wish I could!

Welcome Marilee! I take it you're raising your GS (grandson) or taking care of him for long hours. Sorry that's made it difficult for you to find time to exercise. I know how much that can fill your (general) time and energy. Phew! I hope you at least have found a way to carve out some "me time" for yourself, even w/o exercise.

Meanwhile, please feel free to tell us more about your situation in the Grandparents Caring for Grandkids forum:
