Core Exercises for Seniors
An important exercise for active seniors that’s often overlooked involves core strengthening. Core exercises should always be included with any fitness program. When you work your core, you’re primarily working your pelvis, lower back, hips and stomach. Core exercises not only strengthen the muscles located in these regions, they also help to train these muscles to work in harmony, resulting in improved balance and stability.
Don’t Neglect These Important Muscles
As we age, our core muscle fibers shrink, become less flexible, and eventually weaken. Having weak core muscles makes us more susceptible to injury while performing normal everyday tasks. Don’t neglect these important muscles. Always make sure you have a friend or family member present while conducting these exercises. The best core workouts involve working multiple core muscle groups at the same time, much the same way you would naturally if you were lifting something or climbing.
The instructional videos listed below are a great way to introduce yourself to core strengthening exercises. Consult with your physician before beginning any exercise. Do not perform any exercise that you are uncomfortable with or that causes you pain. If you have a question regarding your ability, it is best to check with your doctor. None of the videos listed below are a substitute for professional medical treatment, diagnosis, or advice. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or discomfort, stop the exercise immediately and consult a medical professional.
