As you get older it is important to ensure that your exercise includes resistance exercises to strengthen your muscles. This will help you maintain healthy bone mass and prevent age-related muscle loss.
With an emphasis on specific exercises that will allow you to perform everyday activities like climbing stairs and getting out of a chair with greater ease, and with less risk of falling, providing a freedom of movement that can have a considerable impact on quality of life.
Senior / Easier Circuits will also increase your muscle elasticity and strengthen your connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments, which, from a bio-mechanical perspective, help hold your body in the upright position.
This type of training also produces a number of beneficial changes at the molecular, enzymatic, hormonal, and chemical levels in your body, helping to slow down and even reverse many of the diseases caused by a sedentary lifestyle, including type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and heart disease.
