Activities that promote flexibility include: (4-7 days a week)

Flexibility exercises allow you to move more freely while keeping your muscles relaxed and joints mobile. Regular flexibility activities will help you live better and longer, allowing you to keep your independence and quality of life as you age. Gentle reaching, bending, and stretching of all muscle groups are examples of flexibility activities.

Here are some suggestions to help you improve your flexibility:

* Horticulture
* Keeping the floor clean
* Gardening
* Vacuum cleaning

* The game of golf
* Bowling lane

Strengthening Exercises: (2-4 days a week)

Strength training keeps your muscles and bones strong, improves your posture, and protects you from disorders like osteoporosis. Strength activities require you to engage your muscles against resistance, such as pushing or pulling a heavy door open.

Try to do a combination of exercises that engage the muscles in your arms, midsection, and legs to guarantee strong overall strength. Ensure that your upper and lower bodies, right and left sides, and opposing muscle groups are in good balance (e.g., both the front and back of the upper arm).

Here are some suggestions for strengthening activities:

* Extensive yard work
* Leaf raking and carrying
* Groceries (not to mention newborns and toddlers!) must be lifted and carried.
* Stair climbing
* Abdominal curls and push-ups are examples of exercises.
* Routines for weight/strength training


Duration of Exercise

Experts recommend doing 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic activity three or more times a week, as well as any form of muscle-strengthening activity and stretching at least twice a week, for the best overall health advantages. If you are unable to engage in this level of activity, you can still reap significant health advantages by engaging in 30 minutes or more of moderate to severe physical activity five days each week.

If you haven’t exercised in a long time, begin with less difficult activities like walking or swimming at a comfortable speed. Starting slowly will allow you to get physically active without overworking your body. You can progressively increase your level of rigorous activity as your fitness improves.
