Participating in low-impact exercise is important for senior citizens to keep the body strong and flexible. By building the muscles, the chances of an in-home accident are reduced because of improved balance and strength.
This video shows some easy exercises for seniors to work on balance and lower body strength. Using a chair to provide a sturdy post for balance, movements of the legs and hips can address problem areas that tend to weaken over time.
