Legs Support Your Health

Hockey Hall-of-Famer Gordie Howe reportedly said it years ago: “The legs go first.”

Maintaining leg strength and flexibility ranks high on the list of physical activities that will slow the aging process and ward off illness. Simple things, such as walking, swimming, jogging, hiking, and biking, not only lengthen one’s life but make those extended years more comfortable and enjoyable.

While watching television, stand up from the chair. If you can do this, and sit back down, without requiring any form of support, you’re doing OK.

Then sit on the edge of the chair and extend one leg out in front of you. Reach down with both hand and try to touch the toes on your extended leg without bending the knee. Now try it with the other leg. Work on this until you can get your fingers within four to six inches – or closer — from your toes.
