Senior Balance Exercises For Baseball

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   In celebration of the Women’s American League baseball team, the old-timers are taking to the field once again after first practicing senior balance exercises. Please see senior balance exercises This year is the twenty-five year anniversary of the movie A League Of Their Own. The movie detailed the fantastic story of a women’s baseball league that played during World War II. The main actors and actresses in the hit film included Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Rosie O’ Donnell and many many more. This year, they are having a twenty-five year anniversary softball game with the whole cast and director Penny Marshall. The movie captured the hearts and minds of thousands of Americans as it depicted the hard-working women athletes who brought smiles to many patrons during the tough war years. The movie also captured highlights of the grueling travel schedule as well as hard-fought baseball games around the country. In the movie there are scenes of sliding into second base, diving for ground balls and catching fly balls off the ivy wall of Wrigley Field. To perform these athletic feats, it is first recommended to practice baseball skills as well as senior balance exercises to perform all athletic endeavors at the highest level.

Senior Balance Exercises For Sports

     To reenact some of the iconic scenes from the movie a league of their own, the old-time players need to perform senior balance exercises to play the game of baseball safely. Before hitting the field for the anniversary game, the players can warm up with equilibrium routines like standing on one foot for twenty seconds three times, followed by repetitions on the other foot three times. They can progress to side to side weight shifting activities where they stand with their feet shoulder width apart and transfer weight from one foot to the other in a slowed and controlled manner. Additionally, they can progress their balance skills to include quickly shuffling side to side or front to back, with quick and deliberate turns in direction. Before playing at the twenty-five year reunion game, all involved can practice at home with the senior balance exercises presented by a qualified physical therapist in the exercise for balance DVD
