You have a good fitness routine. As @colleenyoung said stretching is essential especially those hamstrings. I also do planks for core strength and walk daily and my senior gym class really focuses on exercises for balance and strength to prevent falls.

I would integrate stretching into your daily movements. A simple bending over touching your toes while waiting for the microwave for example. Stretch exercises for the neck are good because so often we are looking down at our phones, iPads etc. Even sitting watching tv you can raise your legs up and down and rotate your ankles. Stretch when you reach up to get a dish from the cabinet. It will all become second nature after awhile.

I like to think of myself as a rubber band that will get all dried out and snap if I don’t constantly stretch it.

Good health to all

Mary, I love the visual of thinking of yourself as a rubber band that will get all dried out and snap if you don’t constantly stretch it. I also love the saying "motion is lotion." I repeat it to myself as I do my morning wake up movements.
