Senior Fitness

 

A healthy life is dependent on two things: Diet and Exercise.  

Welcome to the newest addition to the Blind Hog Blogger. Our introductory article, Senior Balancing Act will hopefully be the beginning of a value=packed series of informative articles.

Keeping Physically Fit for Seniors­­­­­

The World Renowned Mayo Clinic has setup a website listing some CORE-Strength Exercises for Senior citizens

Core-strength exercises strengthen your core muscles, including your abdominal muscles, back muscles and the muscles around the pelvis. Strong core muscles make it easier to do many physical activities. You can do core-strength exercises on a carpeted floor or mat. Breathe freely and deeply during each core-strength exercise. Focus on tightening your transversus abdominis, the deepest abdominal muscle and the one you feel contracting when you cough. Repeat each of these core-strength exercises five times. As your core strength improves, build up to 10 to 15 repetitions. If you have back problems, osteoporosis or other health concern, talk to your doctor before doing these core-strength exercises.
