What are the precautions for seniors to work out with weights?

I am 61 years old and exercise daily. Is there a chance of any slip disc at this age if I work out with light weights?

    The best workout is the workout you think is best so feel free to switch around the exercise to suit your needs. Be careful with weights as it can put pressure on the body.

    At this age, muscular and bone loss happens at greater pace and energy levels are dipping lower. Do more exercises that involve their dead weight like push ups, sit-ups and weightless squats, but they can also do some weight training. I also feel that they should do more cardio based things because that will give them way better benefits than weight training at this point.
