Gentle Exercise

Low impact exercises are easier on your joints and improve balance and stability.

Gentle exercise includes: walking, yoga, seated exercises, strength and balance exercises. These activities are ideal if you aren’t very active but want to improve your health, lift your mood and remain independent.

There are lots of ways to keep active within the home itself. Whether that is doing seated exercises, stretching and walking around the house more or challenging family members to a step challenge.

OLDER ADULT CIRCUIT TRAINING
We know that many of you are missing your weekly over 50’s circuit session in Waterford City, Tramore, and Dungarvan.   In response to this we have asked Darragh & Geina from Raise the Bar to put together a video of exercises that you can do in your own home. So switch off the TV, put down the phone, and give it a go.

It is recommended that you do at least 30 minutes a day of moderate intensity activity, five days a week (or 150 minutes a week). Additionally, as we age it is important to focus on aerobic activity, muscle strengthening and balance.

If you have any questions or would like to know about more online resources that will get you moving whilst also obeying the social distance protocols please contact sbrannigan@waterfordsportspartnership.ie, or call 087-4596179.
