What exercises are better for healthy joints?

Exercising for healthy joints

The best exercises for maintaining healthy joints are weight-bearing exercises, such as running. Recent studies have found that healthy joints (those that haven´t been previously injured) show no evidence of damage by long-distance running. But, be sure to stretch first, because it is critical in the prevention of muscles tightening and causing tendon problems. If running is difficult for you, the walking strides are also healthful for joints and a good place to start.
