OnlyWay: Use It with: care while minimizing any pain, Muscles strength & coordination only improve with use. Key: incorporating a complex variety of uses, not just more strength/range in one or a limited set of uses. Thus machines, walking, running, jumping, etc. If any joint pain(s) consider glucosamine+chondroitin (molecular building blocks of cartilage, Nutransense a good brand, sourced from N. America, not China).
