Though it is another fact that the prime signs of ageing are fine lines on face, crow feet, dark circles and a dull face but there are few other signs that start showing with ageing but get neglected. Signs such as deteriorating joint motion and stability, balance and stability and the ability to do normal physical everyday activities are the signs that are way more critical. There are physical activities that we do in our daily life like getting off chair and bed, climbing stairs, gripping on small objects such as pens and pencils and all the activities that include grabbing things with hands, moving joints such as knees, ankles and elbow and with age, people find it rather difficult to do all these activates. From early thirties to late thirties, people start losing their ability to climb up staircases, grab small or big stuff (grocery bags, cups, pen, and pencil) and that’s exactly the time when people should workout.
