A few words of caution for the higher age category is to practice it after a heart and blood pressure check up. Higher age does never mean as “old or superannuated”. Mental age and agility is an individual factor I think. Still we must respect age and experience. Before practicing this exercise I request you all to gear up your body with a warm-up session. It will also be most wise to practice it in the Latter Part of your Exercise Session.
