The best way to deal with painful arthritis

2. Get strong

It is important to keep your body as strong as possible, even as we start to get older. Focusing on daily movements for strength is more appropriate rather than just introducing the odd bicep curl or leg extension. And you don’t even need to attend a gym!

Try some simple bodyweight strength exercises to get you started such as squatting (sit-stand), lunging or walking upstairs for the legs. For the upper body, try some pushing or pulling exercises such as push-ups, dips or pull up variations. You can lift objects over the head or pick them up from the floor.
