Updated: May 27, 2023


Over 65s should engage in a variety of different types of exercise to maintain overall health and fitness. These include:


1. Aerobic exercise to improve cardiovascular health, endurance and overall fitness.


2. Strength training: This includes exercises such as weightlifting, resistance band exercises, and bodyweight exercises. These types of exercises can help increase muscle strength, improve overall physical function, and prevent falls.


3. Balance and flexibility exercises: These include activities such as yoga, tai chi, and balance

exercises. These exercises can help improve balance and reduce the risk of falls.


4. Stretching: stretching exercises help increase flexibility and range of motion, which can be

especially beneficial for those who may have lost some of their flexibility.
