Examples of Exercises
There are several kinds of physical activities that can improve their health and independence. If you decide to do the exercises in this book or other activities that meet the same goal, working gradually to cover the four areas outlined here: endurance, strength, balance, and stretching. Here are some points to remember as you begin to increase their activity:
• If you stop exercising and go back after several weeks, you should put just half the effort they put the time being suspended the effort to increase gradually. Some of the effects of resistance training and muscle reconstruction will deteriorate within 2 weeks, if these activities are reduced considerably, and may disappear completely if not done for 2 to 8 months.
• When an exercise requires you to bend forward, bend at the waist level, not the waist. If you keep your back and shoulders aligned as you bend forward, ensure that you are turning right, hip. If you notice your back or shoulders hunched anywhere as you bend forward, take it as a sign that they are bending incorrectly, at the waist. Bend at the waist may cause spine fractures in people with osteoporosis.
• You can combine exercise. For example, climbing stairs helps improve endurance and strengthen leg muscles simultaneously.
