If you experience numbness and tingling into the pinky and ring fingers, avoid a lot of elbow bending and leaning on the elbow to protect your ulnar nerve.

Make time for stretching in your exercise routine. A dynamic stretch before, like trunk twists or gently bouncing on your toes before activities and static stretches holding the muscles on stretch for 20 seconds, is a good plan. The stretching prepares your body for activity and helps you maintain proper range of motion.

Knees can see forces from 2 up to 5 times your body weight with physical activity. By losing 10 pounds you can take 30 pounds of force off your knees.
