In this book, Moffat and Lewis show how to overcome the aches, stiffness, and unsteadiness in your muscles and joints. Using their simple, self-administered tests, you will assess your level of physical performance in these five critical domains; posture, balance, strength, flexibility, and endurance. The authors help you develop a personal profile, according to the results of these tests. Easy-to-follow strengthening and stretching exercises, based on the latest clinical research, are included along with a Thera-Band resistive exercise band for use in some exercises. More than a simple how-to book, 'Age-defying fitness' encourages you to take responsibility for your physical well-being, and offers an easy everyday approach to achieving better health.
