Dr. Pankaj Naram, an internationally sought-after master healer and recognized authority in pulse reading and marma shakti, highlights information about elder exercise for informational and educational purposes. Not only can moderate exercise increase longevity in adults, but it can also bring a much improved quality of life to those who might already suffer from various ailments.
Experts in this study note that older people need to exercise in three different ways. Not only do they need to include aerobic components in their workouts, but should do flexibility exercises and strength training as well. Especially for older adults is a daily bout of stretching. Stretching helps to increase flexibility, something that tends to decrease naturally with age but which can be bolstered by regular stretching.
Dr. Pankaj Naram says that his master, who lived to be 125 years old, taught him that exercise is best when it also matches the constitution of the person doing it. "In my lineage, which goes back more than 2,500 years," Dr Pankaj Naram explained, "understanding the balance (or imbalance) of pitta, kapha, and vata in the body help people to know what types of food, herbal supplements, and even exercise can help them maintain or regain vibrant health, unlimited energy, and peace of mind, even in very old age."
The results of the studies like these also help to inform people about the benefits of general health and regular exercise. Fitness experts recommend that even older people need to do strength training, which typically included weight-bearing exercise like weight lifting.
According to this study, increasing muscle mass is a key way for people to make their bodies more resistant to accidents that lead to broken bones. Stronger leg muscles, for example, can help older folks maintain their balance, thus preventing falls. General body strength is an efficient way to protect against all sorts of common injuries.
Aerobic exercise for older individuals can consist of something as simple as regular walking. Aerobic exercise strengthens the heart muscle and cardiovascular system in general. Many elderly people, especially those in care facilities, do not get enough exercise. Experts note that sedentary people of all ages can benefit from regular exercise.
