I am 28 years old and 100 pounds overweight. When I ride the stationary bike or use the elliptical machine at the gym, my feet fall asleep. It is really uncomfortable while I am exercising. Why does this happen?

Taking Up a Hobby Later in Life

I am 62 years old and lost 80 pounds in the last two years. I am now physically fit. My trainer suggested that I take up a hobby that would make exercise more fun, such as training for an event at the Utah Senior Games. I want to learn how to throw the javelin—because of my asthma, endurance events are out of the question. What training advice do you have for older people who want to enter amateur athletic competition?

I am a 54-year-old, postmenopausal woman who has developed a flabby stomach and rounded shoulders. I tend to strain my neck trying to do sit-ups to tighten my tummy. Do you have any suggestions on strengthening my upper neck and shoulders? Is there an alternative to sit-ups for tightening my abdomen?
