The ageing process can be a difficult time for many people. One of the most common challenges is that it becomes more and more difficult to move around as we get older. This makes mobility exercises important in order to stay healthy, prevent falls, and maintain independence. Here are five chair exercises perfect for elders in the UK! Chair exercises are a great way to stay in shape for elderly people with limited mobility. Exercise is one of the best ways to keep your body feeling great and your mind sharp.
The following are five chair exercises for you to try, with a video from British Council’s “Senior Exercises” YouTube channel:
Place two chairs facing each other about 3 feet apart and sit between them on the edge of one chair. Put your hands behind you on the back of that chair and then lean forward so that your weight is on both chairs, bending at the waist until you feel a stretch in your shoulders;
Lie face down on the floor and extend your arms straight out in front of you, palms flat against the floor. Push up until your arms are straight and then lift one arm off the ground, extending it out to the side of you;
Stand with feet together in front of a chair that is behind you. Place hands on edge for balance, bend at hips while sitting back onto the chair, allowing knees to go over toes;
start by leaning forward with chest against the edge of the seat so that hands are grasping each side of the seat; then lower yourself until elbows are at 90 degrees or less and push up to starting position;
stand with one foot on a chair, another leg straight. Lift the bent leg so that it is parallel to the floor and lower back down without touching the seat. These exercises can be done anywhere!
