Exercise can help even in your 90s

Benefits: Vigorous exercise two times a week for three months can significantly improve the health of those over 90 - helping flexibility, strength and stamina

If you claim that creaking bones and stiff joints stop you from exercising, you may have just run out of excuses.

For a new study has found that even people well into their 90s can benefit from regular strength and endurance training.
Just three months of working out twice a week is enough to give significant improvements in flexibility, strength and stamina - even at the age of 96.
Veteran endurance sports are becoming more and more popular, as life expectancy grows and people look for new activities in their retirement.
