Effective Low-Impact Moves To Add To Your Workout

Are you looking to switch up your spring fitness routine? Consider going low-impact for an effective workout that’s easy on your joints.


A low-impact exercise routine can highly benefit your health by strengthening your muscles, preventing injury, and reducing stress. Here are some of the low-impact and effective workouts you can try from our senior apartments in Spring, Texas

Stretching 

Stretching is one of the most effective low-impact workouts you can try. It improves your flexibility as well as the range of motion. For effectiveness, prioritize stretches that focus on muscles. It’s important to regularly stretch your shoulders, upper arms, legs, hips, upper body, and neck. Move gently and slowly to prevent any injury. If you’re not sure where to start, here’s a great video for some basics. 

Yoga 

Yoga usually involves a series of postures as well as breathing exercises that are effective in improving your physical fitness and boosting your mood. These exercises aid in flexibility and building your core muscles. You should try yoga exercises at home to improve your stability and coordination. 

Chair Exercises

For those experiencing mobility issues or having chronic conditions, chair exercises are a great way to improve mobility safely. You can try lifting lightweight dumbbells from your chair to add strength to your hands. You can also stretch your hands forward and backward to improve their flexibility. 

Leg Raises 

These exercises can be done at home with absolutely no equipment. You can simply hold a chair or table and move one leg to the side and back. You can do the same for the other leg and repeat the exercise several times. Doing this will strengthen your legs and improve your mobility. 

Resistance Bands 

Resistance bands are cheap and portable and anyone can use them at home. You can use a resistance band while seated or standing depending on the posture that is comfortable for you. These exercises will keep your muscles and bones strong. 

Squats 

Simple squats can be very easy and effective. They will improve your hip flexibility, strengthen your legs, and prevent hip replacement surgery. Squats also strengthen your quadriceps, making it easy to rise from a chair or get out of a car. If you are having challenges doing squats, try doing them against the wall or while holding a stable object to keep you from falling 

Wall Push-Ups 

Traditional push-ups might be challenging for some seniors. However, wall push-ups can also be as effective as traditional ones. Wall push-ups are good for people experiencing issues with their lower spine, who lacks upper body strength, and those feeling uncomfortable doing the traditional push-ups. They will strengthen your arms, shoulders, and upper back. 

These low-impact exercises are sure to keep you agile and mobile. Contact us today if you'd like to make Augusta Woods your home.
