Moving with stability and control can become more challenging as we age. If you’ve noticed this, it might be time to start exercising to increase your mobility.
For example, can you squat down and then get back up? Do your joints ache, like your wrists, hips, and knees?
With poor mobility, we can lose the ability to do things we enjoy, have a higher risk of falling, and experience social isolation.
Studies suggest that the more we exercise, the better off we’ll be. Mobility limitations in older adults are commonly caused by low physical activity, strength or balance impairment, obesity, and chronic illness like diabetes.
In addition to strength training, mobility work often includes foam rolling, mobility drills, and stretching. By working out to increase our mobility, we help avoid injury; protect and support joints; and maintain a fuller range of motion.
For maturing, active adults, mobility work is essential for a safe, healthy lifestyle – whether picking up grocery bags or kettlebells, cleaning the house, or completing a workout.
The right exercises can prevent bad posture, pain, and physical dysfunction.
Take an active role in maintaining your mobility so you can live the life you want to live. We’re here to show you how. Our 21-Day Strength and Longevity Program is perfect for you.
