The average senior loses about 3% of their muscle strength every year, but this decrease can be delayed, or even reversed through proper diet and exercise.

 

Simply stated, balance and muscle loss do not have to be part of the natural aging process! With all of the different exercise programs available today, the thought of getting started on a strengthening program can definitely feel overwhelming. That’s why it’s important to focus on the key functional movements that have been proven to impact your day-to-day life.

Functional movements are movements that are based on real-world situations. They usually involve multiple joint movements that place demand on the body’s core muscles in functional ways.

The 7 basic functional movements are:

• Push
• Pull
• Squat
• Lunge
• Hinge
• Twist
• Walk

Functional movement exercises help to prepare your muscles for daily tasks by simulating common movements that you might do throughout your day.

 

Most of these exercises also concentrate on core stability, which improves overall balance. With this in mind, we are excited to announce the release of the ultimate, all-in-one program designed specifically for Seniors concerned about maintaining their strength and independence; Functional Strength for Seniors.

1. How often should these exercises be done?

The frequency will really depend on the person's tolerance and physical capability as long as you don't push yourself too hard to the extent of causing muscle soreness and pain.

 

We recommend adding the program as a daily practice to get the best results over a longer period of time. You may wish to add this program before or after your regular gym session or use it independently.

 

Continuity and consistency are the keys. A period of rest is also important in order to rest and relax the muscles.

 

Remember to start off slowly and build up gradually. Don’t push yourself too hard, too fast: progression in fitness occurs over weeks and months, not days. Increase only one exercise variable at a time — how long your exercise session lasts (duration), how hard you work during the exercise (intensity) or the number of exercise sessions each week (frequency) — and only by a small amount.

 

2. I have a recent knee surgery. Are these exercises safe for me?

The exercises in this program are easy and not strenuous that can be carried out by anyone regardless of age and ability as long as there are no underlying medical conditions that are contraindicated to the knee. In case that knee pain is present, we highly recommend that you skip the Floor Routine as there are some exercises which require kneeling.

 

3. Are the exercises required to be done all together?

There is no standard rule in doing the exercises. However, due to the number of exercises in this program, we recommend that you start off with the Upper Body Workout to be done for the first 7 days of your workout regimen. Once you are done with the Upper Body, you can proceed to the Lower Body Workout. Again, this has to be completed for 7 days.

 

4. Do we need gym equipment in doing the exercises?

Yes. You will be needing resistance tubing, dumbbells and ankle weights for this program.

 

5. Where can we get the equipment?

You can get the equipment from the following stores:

EFI Online Store

Local Fitness Exercise Store

Local Fitness Exercise Gym

Online stores

 

6. I am 72 and have fibromyalgia weakness and aching. I can’t do any strenuous exercise, only gentle walking. Could your program help me at all in your honest opinion? I get lots of pain and weakness in my hips particularly.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. This program will help with your weakness in the hips as this program facilitates functional strengthening of the muscles. Please note that strength building exercises are helpful when muscles are weak. At first, exercise may increase your pain. But doing it gradually and regularly often decreases symptoms. Other appropriate exercises may include walking, swimming, and biking and water aerobics. Good posture and relaxation exercises also are helpful.

 

In doing the exercises, it is important that you start it gradually and do not overwork your muscles as people with fibromyalgia are prone to fatigue.

 

7. Can an 82 year old with mitral valve prolapse do these exercises? How safe are they not to cause regurgitation?

The exercises in this program are easy and not strenuous that anyone can do. However, in the presence of a heart condition such as mitral valve prolapse, we highly recommend that you discuss with your doctor which exercises are safe for you or not before embarking on any exercise program for safety purposes.  

 

8. How likely that a senior will improve his strength with these exercises if he is wheelchair bound?    

Doing seated exercises is more than not doing any exercise at all. The Functional Strength for Seniors program can help with improving your strength. The program includes sitting routines that will enable you to do strength and flexibility exercises. The sitting routines have four different workouts focused on the Upper Body, Lower Body, Whole Body and Core. This will enable you to work in different areas based on your goal. Maintaining upper body strength and cardiovascular fitness is important for all people, including wheelchair users. By following a program that incorporates stretching, strengthening, and endurance exercises, you will be better able to complete daily tasks and prevent future decline. Maintaining upper body strength and cardiovascular fitness is vital to all of us regardless of age and condition, including wheelchair bound. By following a program that incorporates stretching, strengthening, and endurance exercises, you will be better able to complete daily tasks and prevent future decline.  

 

9. Will I be able to do the program even when I have Knee Arthritis?

Yes, you can definitely do these exercises. The Functional Strength for Seniors program has 4 different workouts such as the Upper Body Workout, Lower Body Workout, Whole Body Workout and Core Workout. Each workout has 3 different routines such as the Sitting routine, Standing Routine and Floor Routine.  

 

With that being said, you can do the sitting routines should your knees be in pain. The program allows you to self direct and do the exercises without exacerbating your symptoms. Once your knee condition improves you can progress to doing the standing and floor exercises.

Great Program!!

Prior to doing this program, I use to do exercises for my knees, hips, and back. It was a bit troublesome but with this program, I am able to work on them all at the same time. It really helped me improve my ability to do my daily chores. I must say I am more functional now.
