3. Behind-The-Neck Lat Pulldowns

This is an exercise that you should absolutely avoid in your 60s. Pulling the latches behind the head can put a lot of strain on the neck and shoulders. Over time, it can even lead to a strain on these muscles, especially the front part of your shoulders.

I would even recommend people younger than 50 avoid this exercise. Most middle-aged people don’t have enough flexibility in the shoulders and chest muscles to perform this exercise.

Instead, perform a normal lat pull in front of the body, where you lean back slightly and pull the bar to the upper sternum to train your lats and upper back.
