Senior Balance Exercises For Brisk Walking

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

  Weight loss is on the minds of many of us and starting a fitness program, beginning with  senior balance exercises can lead to great success. Please see One of the most successful ways to battle obesity is to initiate a physical fitness program that includes brisk walking. In fact, some might say that walking is the easiest form of exercise because it is readily available, very inexpensive ( just a pair of sturdy walking shoes) and provides fresh air and many health benefits. To be specific, a University of Utah study in 2014 found that in women, every minute of brisk walking throughout the day could lower the risk of obesity by 5%. Additionally, another exciting study at the Harvard School of Public Health found that walking could cut the effects of obesity-promoting genes by half. For those older individuals who want to lose weight, practicing certain senior balance exercises is recommended before embarking on a brisk walking program.

Senior Balance Exercises For Steady Footsteps

    Before heading out on a walking program, medical professionals suggest that you rehearse specific senior balance exercises to build a strong foundation of steadiness. One important equilibrium routine that helps with walking is tandem walking, where you walk along a line in a heel to toe manner. The narrow base of support employed with tandem walking develops strong balance reactions at the feet and ankles, which help you be more surefooted on outdoor walking paths. In addition, when you practice stability routines first, you will be able to increase the speed of your walking to a brisk pace, which is able to produce greater weight loss. You can learn how to perform senior balance exercises by joining in with the instruction of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
