    Walking

    Before you begin any new exercises. seniors should talk over with their doctors or health care providers what they wish to do. Some exercises can affect the medication they are taking. Consider your plans and then talk to your good doctor. Walking demands good supportive shoes and a slow beginning to start a good routine. Make sure the terrain is even to walk on and the weather conditions outdoors to be safe as well. Plan a walk for a short distance remembering the trip back has to be made as well. Wear reflective clothing so vehicles will easily see you as you take your walks.

    Swimming

    Like any exercise program swimming should begin slowly and work up into the plateau of desired result for life. Beginning slowly will prevent injuries that could very well prevent an ongoing swimming routine. Plan on a few minutes to warm up by stretching and then only a few minutes swimming to see how you feel the next day after that short routine. If you feel good afterwards, increase the time you spend at each of the two activities. Remember the warm up is important for the real swim time. Wear eye goggles if needed for eye protection. Plan on two days a week and increase to 4 days of swimming. Alternate days swimming with days of not swimming for good health.

    Chair Aerobics

    When you want to exercise and cannot do upright aerobics, think about chair aerobics. Many senior centers actually have a person who can guide you with safe, effective and fun aerobic exercises. Inquire with your health care professional to determine what your limitations might be for the chair exercises available in any setting. Make sure your chair is solid and safe before beginning any chair aerobic exercises for your better health. Maintain the chair exercises at least twice a week if possible after consultation with your doctor. Exercising to music and doing your chair exercises with a group will be so much more fun.

    Bed Aerobics

    Even if you have difficulty with most exercises as a senior, bed exercises are possible for almost all people. Talk to a physical therapist and your health provider to discover all the aerobic exercises available for bed ridden individuals. Choose your correct time of day to begin your bed aerobics and make sure safe environment is in place. This might mean some side rails on the bed where you will be exercising and some one spotting or close by to maintain safe conditions for senior bed aerobics. Choose a time when you have not just finished eating. Choose a time of day when you are not too tired.

    Bicycling

    If you once rode a bicycle you truly never forget how to do that exercise. As a senior the most important thing in beginning a new exercise routine is to consider safety first. If the balance and cognitive responses are keen; go for the bicycling exercises when you get your bicycle. Think of all the gear needed to stay safe and try to bicycle with another person so you can remain safer yet.You will need a helmet and good shoes along with proper attire. Consider all the bicycle add ons that can make bicycling safer for each and every exercise ride along with enjoyable.Check with an authorized person to check your bike so you will be well prepared.
