Strength Training For Seniors Are you a senior citizen or do you look after a senior citizen? In this video you will learn how to provide exercises that boost strength for seniors or the elderly people. For middle-aged and older people, there is some good news. Work done in Dr. Cooper’s laboratory in Dallas indicates that if one does moderate exercise, such as fairly brisk walking, for as little as 30 minutes a day for four days a week, the life span will be increased almost as long as someone who does very vigorous exercise. All of one’s exercise should not be done indoors. Muscular building has been shown to be more steady and of greater degree if some exercise is done out-of-doors, particularly if the sun is shining. If one uses sports or useful labor as exercise, occasionally one should take a brisk walk to stretch out one’s legs; probably once a week would be sufficient for this type of workout. Remember the benefits, and discipline yourself to daily exercise.
