Standing Functional Fitness Exercises for Seniors

17  comments

This 20 minute program is great for seniors who want to focus on functional fitness exercises while standing. These are movements that you already do in your day to day life, but today we are going to work on improving your strength so you can do those movements more easily. We'll finish with a few minutes of stretching at the end.

  • Jules, this was superb 😊… functionality meets physicality( πŸ™‚ )…in a short workout! Sheer geniusπŸ‘πŸ‘….(my push-ups are still against the wall.)

  • You are right, Jules, that our balance can be different every day. Once better and once worse also at different times of the day. Also we usually have one leg stronger and the other weaker.
    This exercise of lifting the arm and the opposite leg (15:36) is a must for me in my set of balance exercises.
    Thank you so much for your very thoughtful and well-designed workout.
    You are also very good for our well-being. Thanks.πŸ’›

    • We often don’t realize our balance issues until we start these exercises…it definitely provides us with the feedback to know what we need to work on. Thanks for your comment and I’m glad you found the exercises helpful.

  • Good Wednesday morning Jules β˜•πŸŒ„β˜• We have ice on the ground and I was walking my dog this morning and thinking about you the entire time. I wouldn’t taken the path I took with him this morning if it weren’t for your workout sessions ❀️ Thank you immensely for you and for your channel πŸ€—
