Hey Guys,

As promised a seated warm-up routine for those who do seated exercises.

Before undertaking any exercise routine, it’s important to ensure our bodies are adequately warmed-up.

By doing this we can get ourselves ready for the exercise, prevent any injuries and also get more out of the exercise we do.

Perform this warm-up each time you perform a workout video or get out and moving!

Enjoy and Have Fun!

– Mike

5 minutes of easy to follow, gentle, core exercises for seniors!

Here is a gentle core workout that goes for 5 minutes, going through 4 exercises for the core. It’s good for those of you who have trouble getting up/down off the floor, have a little trouble with your balance and just prefer to do exercises seated in a chair.

Getting a strong core is not just about strengthening the superficial muscles of the core (what most people refer to as a 6 pack). It’s about focusing on strengthening the deeper muscles of the core so we can move with ease and decrease pain!

Hey Guys,

This week I have decided to create a simple warm-up routine you can follow before undertaking any exercise video or before performing an exercise or physical activity.

Before undertaking any exercise routine, it’s important to ensure our bodies are adequately warmed-up.

By doing this we can get ourselves ready for the exercise, prevent any injuries and also get more out of the exercise we do.

Perform this warm-up each time you perform a workout video or get out and moving!

Enjoy and Have Fun!

– Mike

Maintaining good posture is important for many reasons. Not only will it help you decrease pain, but it will also decrease your chances of falling and improve how you look.

Day in, day out we spend much of our time doing tasks that are at the front of the body such as sitting on the computer, at our desks, ironing, gardening, cooking etc. This means we take up positions that are no good for our posture.

It’s also a great idea to continually have awareness of your posture when doing certain tasks. To do this learn the steps below and put them into action throughout your day!

Check Your Posture – Simple Posture Correction:

1) Sitting up in a chair or standing.
2) Up nice and tall.
