Start as we mean to go on: Keeping Fit for the New Year!

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016 by morethan

We have all eaten and drunk too much over the festive season so now it is time to work it off. To improve health; older adults should try to do two types of physical activity each week: aerobic and strength exercises.

NHS guidelines for older adults aged 65 and over who are generally fit and have no health conditions should aim do the following exercises:

  • try to be active daily and do at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity such as cycling or walking every week, and
  • strength exercises on two or more days a week that work all the major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms).

You should also try to break up long periods of sitting with light activity, as sedentary behaviour is now considered an independent risk factor for ill health, no matter how much exercise you do.

Older adults are also at risk of falls, such as people with weak legs, poor balance and some medical conditions.  Therefore if possible do exercises to improve balance and co-ordination on at least two days a week. Examples include yoga, tai chi and dancing.

Moderate activity will raise your heart rate and make you breathe faster and feel warmer. One way to tell if you’re exercising at a moderate level is if you can still talk, but you can’t sing the words to a song.

Examples of activities that require moderate effort for most people include:

  • walking
  • water aerobics
  • ballroom and line dancing
  • riding a bike on level ground or with few hills
  • pushing a lawn mower

Daily chores such as shopping, cooking or housework don’t count towards your 150 minutes, because the effort isn’t enough to raise your heart rate, but they are important nonetheless, as they break up periods of sitting.

For more information on physical activity guidelines for older adults please visit the NHS website.

Finally to help you with your New Year exercise campaign do take a look at our More Than Mobility pedal exerciser. Enjoy exercising while reading or watching TV in your own home.  This lightweight portable pedal exerciser comes with a digital display (showing time spent and calories burnt) and assists in restoring muscle strength, circulation, co-ordination and fitness.  You can use on the floor for lower body or on the table for arm exercises.  Only £29.99!

Happy Exercising!
