Leg strengthening exercises (for seniors)
Walking is not enough! For strength, flexibility, and mobility, you want to work all of your muscles.
Strength, flexibility and mobility exercises for seniors:
- chair squats
- ankle rotations
- point and flex feet
- hip lifts
- standing leg lifts and lowers
- static lunges
- calf raises
- quad stretch
- hamstring stretch
- calf stretch
You can do these exercises daily. I made a workout video of these to show form, that you can follow-along. If you’re sore from this workout, try doing it twice a week for 4 weeks. Then do it three times a week for 4 weeks. Keep adding an additional day of this workout every 4 weeks, until you’re strong enough to complete it daily.
