Why Are Those Elderly in China Engage in Bizarre Fitness Trends

If you've ever walked past or through a public park in China, chances are you've come across Chinese grandparents "exercising".

In recent years, a fitness trend dubbed "hanging neck exercise" among Chinese senior citizens has gained popularity. Executed by fixing a rope-like neck-hanging sling to a high tree branch or fitness equipment, one hangs by his head allowing his body to swing with the rope. Those who partake in this new fitness craze believe that it is very helpful for their cervical spine and back.
