Good core strength and stability are a must for an aging body.
Virtually every move your body makes in daily life starts with your core. It is the central linking point between the lower and upper body. Core muscle strength and stability affect how we lift, reach, turn, and bend.
If the core and lower back muscles are allowed to deteriorate and weaken, just standing up straight will become a challenge, and the risk of having a fall goes through the roof.
A weak core also leaves you with poor posture, lower back pain, and muscle injuries, so doing some simple core exercises will help you on the road to improve your balance, stability and you will have less fear of injury. It also reinforces the theory that core exercises for seniors are a must as the core is often the weakest link in your body. Among other things, it connects the top and bottom of your body together and has a huge bearing on your posture and balance.
Starting is what’s stopping most people. So, get started NOW. You don’t have to do what I do, you just have to make sure that you do something, but it is also good to know just how far you can go at your age.
