I have been advised that only low-impact aerobics are safe for joints but having some doubts as to the pre-aerobics condition of my joints, I have designed the perfect exercise plan.

No-Impact Aerobics. You simply pop an exercise video tape into the VCR and make sure you have lots of popcorn ready to snack on while you watch.

Ned --

Excellent addition to the regimen.

We would only advise that the corn be air-popped -- with plenty of real, melted butter and salt added. This gets the whole starch-fat-sodium metabolic process going.
