Bonny Rider for improving limb coordination

Exercising, Older Adults

I find that a number of outdoor exercise equipment can cater for those with health problems, arthritis, elderly and with slight immobility problems.

One such one is the bonny rider- as compared to those in the gym, this one does not have weight and relatively easy to use:

Benefits as printed on the equipment:

Good for healing, bending and stretching hindrances in wrist, elbow, hip joint and knee joint and aches in limbs, waist and back.

Abdomen Crunches Alone Will Not Give You a Flat Tummy More and more people are discovering that abdomen crunches and sit ups alone just will not flatten the tummy.

Exercise frequency 15 minutes a day or 1 hour once a week is better? Which is more important? Exercise frequency or duration? When we are very busy and stressed, we tend to put exercise into the backburner and reach out for the fridge instead.  We may schedule exercise only on weekends and spent about few hours exercising on each day to 'compensate' on the week of inactivity.
