    Horseback riding and aikido are my main favorites. I also really enjoy hiking in the state parks, but rarely have time or energy. Most of my exercise comes with my job.

    Bench. Always bench. Deadlifts next. Squats come a distant third.

    Rowing, on the water - those long, skinny boats like in the Olympics. Only mine goes slower. (Hey: I'm doin' OK. I'm old, and I started late!)

    Hey, there's nothing wrong with starting late. As long as you know your limits and are being safe about it, then I say that's great for you. It's better late then never. There was a little old man who was in his 70's in my yoga classes.

    My yoga class was mainly a bunch of mid 20 year-olds and early 30 year-olds. He did just fine. He couldn't do every move as fast as other's, but he did some moves that not even most of the men in our classes could do.You'd be surprised what some people can do despite their age or looks.

    What is this "limits" of which you speak? ;)

    P.S. An 81-year-old took our club's learn-to-row class. He did fine.

    I don't think we have limits because of age, we have limits because of desire and commitment!

    At 66, I lift weights, run, swim and hike. My favorite is dead lifts above anything else and also leg press, I'm up to 470 lbs right now so yeah I like that a lot.

    Running for sure! When you spends weeks at a time unable to even walk, being able to run when you can feels like freedom and a defiant victory!

    Does bouncing in the ocean mixed with intermittent swimming count? Cuz that's my favorite. Hiking second. Deadlifts third.
