Senior Balance Exercises For The Long Haul

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

  Older adults sometimes battle with feelings of fatigue, shortness of breath, weakness and immobility which can be helped by participating in fitness regimes that include cardiovascular programs and  senior balance exercises. Please see  Medical researchers have found that different types of exercise programs can be a significant benefit for those in the aging population. As an example, endurance exercises — activities that increase your breathing and heart rate — such as dancing, walking, swimming, or bicycling, increase your stamina and improve the health of your lungs and circulatory system as well as your heart. There are many ways to be generally active or to participate in fitness activities. You can be active in short spurts throughout the day or you can set aside specific times of the day or specific days of the week to exercise. Many physical activities, such as brisk walking or raking leaves, are free or low-cost and do not require special equipment. Other endurance event ideas include riding a bike, playing tennis, jogging or skiing. One important aspect before you start an endurance program is to perform specific senior balance exercises to establish the needed steadiness for your activity.

Senior Balance Exercises For Endurance Events

    before you begin an endurance activity, it is essential to rehearse senior balance exercises to build adequate stability. as an example, before starting on a brisk walk, you can practice tandem walking where you walk in a narrow base of support along a line. Walking heel to toe along a line will develop strong balance reactions at the feet and ankles, preparing you for outdoor, brisk walking. You can learn how to do tandem walking and other senior balance exercises by joining in with a knowledgeable Physical Therapist as she explains in detail these equilibrium routines on the Exercise For Balance DVD.
