    Thanks for the article. I tried all of the movements and am better than I think I am! Except for reaching back with the arm. Couldn't do those when I was younger either. This made my day!

    My mother is in a continuing care place, and I watch the oldsters doing whatever they can. Ever heard of "sittercise"? They sit in chairs and work out because they no longer have the balance to move standing up. There is always an answer.

    Thanks for sharing the article, I hadn't seen it. My favorites keep saying I have nothing in it, but I've never seen a way to add something to favorites, do you know how to do it? This is the kind of thing I would want to add. I know I could pass most of these. The one I'm pretty sure I wouldn't pass is the shoulder flexibility. My left arm isn't bad, but my right arm (the dominant one) is pretty stiff.

    Thanks for sharing this. I'm going to work through it tomorrow although I saw at least one activity that I won't be able to do due to a disability.

    I tried it today and was pleasantly surprised to be on the low end or below the average for my age. I guess all this exercising since retiring is paying off.

  I am younger than 60, but the article is interesting.
I also know plenty of people younger that use their age as an excuse o either quit exercising or not beginning either. emoticon
