 Many medical researchers these days have been showing the influence of aerobic activities on dimensions of health and   by practicing senior balance exercises on a regular basis, older adults can safely partake in fitness training. Please see more information at More and more scientific research is being published that demonstrates that aerobic routines improve key factors in aging individual’s health. Aerobic exercise is defined as physical activity that increases the heart rate and the body’s use of oxygen. Aerobic exercise helps improve a person’s physical fitness. Types of aerobic exercise can include but are not limited to:
– Riding a bicycle
– Brisk walking
– Playing tennis
– Playing Pickle ball
– Playing Basket ball
– Swimming
– Skiing
In fact, it has been suggested by researchers that the increased fitness brought about by aerobic exercise may help to maintain good cognitive function in older age. Furthermore, There is increasing evidence that physical activity supports healthy ageing. Exercise is helpful for cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal systems, and cognitive systems among others. Aerobic activity, in particular, improves cardiovascular fitness and, based on recently reported findings, may also have beneficial effects on cognition among older people. To be able to participate safely in aerobic routines, medical researchers and healthcare professionals urge those in the aging population to practice in senior balance exercises first to establish necessary steadiness and minimize any risk of falling.

Senior Balance Exercises For Fitness Programs

     To safely participate in aerobic fitness programs, medical providers suggest that older adults first participate in a senior balance exercise program to develop good stability with all aerobic activities. As an example, one equilibrium routine that an older person can rehearse is called tandem walking. With tandem walking, the aging individual walks along a line in a heel to toe fashion. This tandem walking routine can be performed in a hallway or near A counter where the person can hold on for extra steadiness if needed. Tandem walking involves using a narrow base of support. During the tandem walking routine, the person’s balance will be challenged and enhanced. Consequently, the senior citizen will be able to transfer these balance skills established during tandem walking routines to their aerobic fitness programs such as brisk walking or playing tennis. You can learn how to perform tandem walking and other senior balance exercises by following the instructions of a qualified physical therapist in the exercise for balance DVD.
