Hello there, it has been a long while since I last shared my keep fit tips online. As you know, I keep exercising on a daily basis to keep fit. One of the routines is to stretch my muscles.

Do read up on the benefits of stretching (click here and here to read) so you will know how important it is, especially when one advances in age.

As they say, if you don’t use the muscles, they will go to waste, so I make sure I stretch daily – as it is a simple but very necessary activity.

I find that stretching with a resistance band like the one in the photos, helps to deepen the stretch, which in turn, gives the muscles a better ‘strengthening work out’.  The photos above were taken in 2012, when I was 88, and I am still at it, at the age of 90. Praise the Lord!

But as in all cases, please know that I have been exercising and stretching for many years, and I know how my body adjusts to the different routines I have.

The smart thing to do is to know when to exercise caution. If in doubt, please consult your dr in advance for advice.

Wishing everyone a blessed week ahead!

Amen

Suzanne
