My lower back is about 160 years old. I wish there was a way to harvest lower backs from gang members who get killed in gang drive by shootings. I'll take a used back even if it's 25 years old.

Antioxidants can make ALL the difference in the world for our health and well being. GrapeSeedEx is 20x's more powerful than Vit C..I take them both daily, very cheap health insurance.

My own voice at my age is so clear and strong and I get comments all the time from people I know and those who I don't on my age once I tell them.

Lower back?? My good ole D.O. who worked on my back starting in my 30's, told me I had a back of a 90 yr old way back over the years. I would never do back surgery so have learned to live with it. And do all I know to keep going.

Do some exercises to open your lower back. My brother and sister both have this problem. I learn this in my Pilate class.

Yep me too. I've seen three orthopediac surgeons who all independently looked at my MRI. Surgery won't work. "Core Exercises" I don't want to do "core exercises". I want something easy, like a pill or insurance covered massages.

I'm 67 and took up tennis in ernest about 3 years ago. Primarily doubles and most of the time mixed. I feel like I'm better now then when I was in my 20s and 30s playing but that is probably my failing memory. I'm certainly playing more now than then. I get winded easily but recover quickly. When I fall, so far pretty rarely, I bruise something terrible. Plan on playing as long as physically possible.

Yes, I've seen that article. You need to read further down for this:

Quote:
... women who took 4,400 steps per day, on average, were about 40 percent less likely to die during the follow-upperiod of about four yearscompared with women who took 2,700 steps. ... Another surprise: The benefits of walking maxed out at about 7,500 steps...
Only women subjects were included in the study. The number isn't necessarily going to be the same for men. If anyone has found a similar study that includes male subjects, I'd be interested in reading it. I'd rather be working up to 7500 per day than 10000.

It seems this year when I am looking at 70 seems to be piling up on me. I feel I am losing my immunity, losing energy, and have aches and pain. It is the suddenness of it. I did not feel age creeping up before in my health, only in appearance.

From a 2011 research study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity - the range recommended is 7-10 thousand per day, with a somewhat narrower range for those with disabilities:

Quote:
... the range for healthy older adults is 7,000-10,000 steps/day, at least 3,000 of which should be accumulated at a brisk pace. For individuals living with disability or chronic illness the range is 6,500-8,500 steps/day ...
https://ijbnpa.biomedcentral.com/art...1479-5868-8-80

I'm setting my goal at 8500 steps per day, therefore.

I donít worry about living long, but I do want to be active, read and write and think clearly, until I die.
