Hi, my name is Tanya Batts, I'm a personal trainer at Gold's Gym. Here's a few cardio exercises for seniors. The things you will need for this are: dumbbells, exercise ball, and some space. These are pretty low impact. I've trained a lot of seniors and they go pretty hard. So when you think of seniors don't think of someone with a walker. Cause seniors can you know they can do pretty much anything that the younger people can do. So I got this ball and I am starting simple. This one is a simple one to try. It's kind of lifting. And what this is doing is warming up the shoulders. I feel the abdominals working. I am going to throw in my butt a little bit, pretty good stuff. Alright another one, that's pretty good. I'm going to tap the ball and I am going to squat. So I am going to touch the floor with the ball and lower down. That is getting in the legs. One more. So that warms it up big time. So I want to try a little bit of weights because you've got to get the weight training in if you want to stay healthy. So I've got my heels together, zip up the inner thighs, arm circles and reverse it. So my hands are going above my head a little bit. So what that is going to do is increase my heart rate. So this is a little bit of cardio. Anything you do with a little bit of weights is going to increase your heart rate maybe not a lot, but it's going to get you high. That's really fantastic right now. My shoulders on fire and if you are getting a little older, always think of osteoporosis. So you've got to do the weight training, you've got to work on flexibility. You got to get the cardio. So those are just a few things you can do with the ball, with the weights, stay active. You don't have to park as close as you can to the grocery store. Try walking everyday. At least thirty minutes and maybe try a little bit of an incline on your treadmill. But those are a few things you can do for cardio for seniors.
