strength, posture, balance, endurance and flexibility.

associated with muscles and joints as one ages. Most of the routines
require simple exercise equipment, such as resistance bands and weights
for ankles and wrists. By following the regular routine of these
strengthening exercises, readers can improve their fitness level based
