My physical medicine doctor rated the following activities in decreasing order of importance:

1. Flexibility - stretching, yoga, etc.
2. Aerobic - jogging, swimming, etc.
3. Strengthening - lifting weights, isometrics, etc.

Her rationale: there is less reason to be aerobically fit if one is as stiff as a board. Stretching and the like is especially important as we age or if, like myself, one seems to naturally slide into decrepitude. Similarly, strength is important, but there is less reason to do it, if one is stiff and the arteries are all a-clog; also, whilst one may indeed work up quite a sweat lifting weights, it does not provide the important sustained heart rate of aerobics. Such are my doctor's thoughts, but they seem logical to me.

Best regards,
Mr Beev
