BALANCED EXERCISE

It seems like every time we hear exercise advice, someone is recommending aerobic exercise and strength training. While these are pillars of a healthy lifestyle, such advice often skips over the other two factors in an exercise regimen: balance and flexibility training. Balance and flexibility exercises are valuable anytime to support muscles through aerobic and strength training. However, they are especially important as we age, when the risk of falling increases and tight muscles cause pain and limit range of motion. Performing balance and flexibility exercises such as yoga, Tai Chi, or stretching sequences twice a week for at least ten minutes each can significantly improve your quality of life.
