Gentle Ab Exercises - Retired & Fitter




Here are 3 ways you can strengthen your abs without having to get up and down from the floor! So why should older adults, particularly those over 65, train their abdominal muscles?

  1. Improved balance and stability: Strong abs can help yous maintain better balance and stability, reducing the risk of falls.

  2. Better posture: Strengthening the abdominal muscles can help improve posture, which can reduce back pain and discomfort.

  3. Increased functional strength: Abdominal muscles play an important role in many everyday activities, such as lifting, bending, and twisting. Training these muscles can help you maintain you independence and perform these tasks more easily.

  4. Better overall fitness: Incorporating abdominal exercises into a regular fitness routine can help seniors improve their overall fitness level, which can have numerous health benefits.


It's important for older adults to consult a doctor before starting any exercise program and to start slowly, gradually increasing the intensity and duration of the exercises over time.
