Balance is always important. As we get older it may become harder for us to maintain our balance. However, there are things we can do to improve our balance. This is what Uncle Bud is telling all the members attending the Coffee Club this morning.
He starts by telling us that he is going to share things we can do to improve our balance but wants us to understand when he gives us a time limit for each exercise that we need to realize as we progress we need to challenge ourselves to improve by increasing the time spent on each exercise.
Stand on One Foot:
You may be unsteady on your feet. If so, try doing this exercise near a wall so you can steady yourself when you need to do so.
Challenge Yourself to Improve your Balance
Exercises to improve your leg and ankles strength can also help improve your balance. As you progress you may want to add these challenges. They can help you even more.
All too often we forget the importance of the “cool down” period. Cooling after you exercise gives your muscles time to return to rest. Remember, this is important as it may help prevent injury. Remember that the cooling down period is as important as the exercises.
Exercise is also important when you are trying to lose weight. For professional help please contact Weigh to Wellness at 205-994-2393. Visit them on the web at http://www.weightowellnesslic.com.
