Many of the exercises that we think may help us become healthy can hurt us in the longrun. The video below with Dr. Stuart McGill is one of the few discussions I’ve come across on this topic. The key is to find exercises that avoid damaging our joints when we are young. We then need to shift to more moderate types of exercise as we get older and avoid falling when we get older. I’ve been following Dr. McGill’s work on spine biomechanics for over a decade and know he is very highly regarded in his field.
I don’t know Dr. Peter Attia as well as Dr. McGill but he is interested in developing exercise programs for longevity so he may be a good person to keep an eye on for future developments. He has the same advice as Dr. McGill about trying to save your joints if you want to live to be 100.
