Anti Aging With The Right Exercise Program For Seniors


No matter what age group you fall into some sort of exercise is good for the body and mind. Some sort of exercise is going to help you stay young for a lot longer than if you did nothing at all. If you remain as active as you can you will discover the benefits to your health and it will give you a feeling of self fulfillment. If you want to stay fit you don't even have to do any kind of overly strenuous exercise routines with all that exercise equipment you can find in the gym, you can just use some of your own items you have in your home.

A balance exercise will help you maintain your body's balance and this will let you be able to move around with good confidence in yourself and body. You can stand up and then raise your arms out straight at your sides. Make sure your arms are at the height of your shoulders. Now, you will need to find a spot on a wall in front of you to focus on, a picture would be a good example of a focal point. When you focus on this, this will keep you steady when you walk. Next you will step slow while putting one of your feet right in front of the other one while your arms are held out at your sides. When you are taking your step make sure that your leg is lifted up slightly and then hold it for a short count of one and then take the next step. You can start this exercise with ten steps and then increase the amount of steps over time.

You should also include a flexibility exercise. You can do this one by standing up straight and then take hold of an end of a rope, a towel or even a belt, with your right hand. Now you will bend your arm and put the rope or towel over your right shoulder. After you have done that use your left hand and put it behind your back and get a hold of the other end of the towel or rope. Next just gently begin to stretch your right shoulder. You do this by pulling down on the rope with the left hand. You then need to let go and then tighten again for 3 to 5 times. After you have done this switch to the left shoulder and repeat the process.

A good strengthening exercise is the lunge. You will need to stand up and make sure that your legs are separated about the width of your shoulders. Make sure that your toes as well as your knees are pointing forward. Put your hands on your hips and do not lock your knees you can start with your right side first. With your right foot put it about 18 inches in front of you without letting your heel come off the floor. If you can't do this, then make the step less than 18 inches. Now you will bend your knee just a little and then return to the standing. Do the same thing with your left leg. You should try to repeat these lunges five to 20 times for each leg.

Just doing these few exercises each day will help you stay fit and will give you a younger feeling each day. You will be amazed at just how little exercise at one time your body requires to be fit.
