Keep Going With Senior Balance Exercises

     To safely participate in physical activities to maintain adequate health, healthcare providers suggest that you include senior balance exercises with your fitness program. As an example, in order to have good stability while doing strengthening routines like a standing bicep curl exercise with barbell weights, you can first rehearse standing with your feet shoulder width apart and centering your body weight in the middle of your feet. In this position, concentrate on the sense of touch between your feet and the floor, which will enhance the sensory input back to the balance center in your brain. To combine strengthening routines with equilibrium routines, as you lift the barbell up and down, try to focus on keeping your body weight centered in your feet. having a single, concentrated focus for your body weight will advance your overall steadiness. You can learn how to perform specific senior balance exercises that will keep you steady on your feet while you do resistance training or other heathy fitness activities  by following along with the instructions of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
