Get fit and improve balance with the 4-week exercise plan
Boost your Balance provides you with an easy-to-follow workout plan that will help you improve your fitness and balance performance.
Gain competence in senior fitness
The book teaches you all the important principles of exercise for seniors, so you will be able to design your continuing exercise regimen beyond the included 4-week program.
Stretching exercises help improve flexibility and posture and alleviate pain. More flexibility means better fitness, which means less risk of loss of balance and injury. The book’s workout regimen incorporates many stretches and other fitness exercises.
Functional and coordination exercises
These exercises help improve control over your body in situations that are challenging your balance. For example, the side stair step decreases stability and forces you to focus on balance and good motor coordination (while also training your strength). Repeated training of this kind improves balance. The included regimen combines many of these exercises to challenge and train the body’s “balance system.”
Practicing Yoga is a great way to get healthier and improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and coordination. The exercise plan includes many yoga poses that are beneficial for balance performance.
Muscular strength is highly (inversely) correlated with the risk of falls. That means the stronger you are, the less likely you are to fall. The included 4-week program strongly focuses on strengthening the legs and the trunk muscles, which are crucial for better balance and prevention of falls.
