What’s the worst body weight exercise for women over 50? Unless you have excellent body mechanics and awareness, chances are you’re doing more harm than good.
If you can’t do a pull up, don’t try a push up! Planks are, at least, less risky. Find the weight room or press your suitcase if you need a chest exercise!
Are you tired of settling for weight gain and fatigue just because you’re approaching or have already passed age 50? You can still get in the best shape of your life, no matter your age!

Thank you! I recently started doing push ups during a week away from the gym. I will def stop that.
Does this happen to teen females too?
This woman has a nice set. Yum!
She needs to zip up her jacket.
I can do 20 mens consecutive push ups and I’m 67. I didn’t know it could be injurious.
Incredible information! As it so happens, I never wanted to be able to do a push-up anyway. Now I have my absolute best excuse! Thank you so much! Onto the next.
My jaw hit the floor because I have a torn rotator and I ignored the soreness after doing men’s push-ups. And now I’m suffering for it… I’m 69 years old and was doing well but I overdid it with TRX and barre then yoga couple times a week each. I will heal but I am definitely changing my routines. Thank you!
i can’t even do them anyway. Been tryng but not been consistent in trying. Thanks for this. Maybe ill put my efforts in something else
