Cardio Exercises for Seniors
Done in moderation, light cardio exercises can be a great way for active seniors to improve or maintain their level of fitness. Cardio exercises is a form of physical exercise that is designed to increase both heart rate and respiration, which can help to strengthen your heart and promote healthy blood flow through your whole body, including your brain, lungs, digestive system, and all your muscles.
Get More Energy!
In addition to the physical health benefits, cardio exercises can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, sharpen your brain power, and give you more energy throughout the day. Cardio exercises can be any form of physical activity that increases your heart rate, such as jogging, a brisk walk, or any other aerobic activity, including dancing.
According to the CDC. Seniors age 65 or older should get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity activity such as brisk walking. Or they need 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity activity such as hiking, jogging, or running.
