Seniors Exercise

I, Karl Loren, am 81 years old, earned my Kung Fu Black Belt at 74, now do all my exercises with the Polar Heart Rate Monitoring System and do it all in my pool.  Currently I do about 2500 repetitions of resistance band Kung Fu stretches and kicks.  My resting heart rate is below 50 beats per minute.  My cool-down rate is often a reduction from a high above 110 BPM to a low of 70 BPM in 5 minutes or less.  Oh, yes, I had a stroke years ago and still walk "with care" but keep fit.
