Life is movement. Even if people are getting old and their movements are slow, they should insist on exercising every day. There are different ways of exercising at different ages. For the elderly, moderate exercise can also prolong life and enhance physical fitness.
The 5 kinds of sports described below are more suitable for the elderly. For your own health, you might as well learn about them.
Running can enhance the body's cardiopulmonary function. If the elderly can persist in running for a long time, it can increase lung capacity and enhance cardiopulmonary function.
Compared with other equipment sports, running is less restricted and less skillful. It can improve the functions of the human body's cardiovascular and cerebrovascular, respiratory, digestive and nervous systems, so it is very popular.
At the same time, running can reduce the body's blood lipid content and help prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases such as high blood pressure. Although running is not very technical, there are also many precautions for the elderly. If you have severe diabetes, arthritis, myocardial infarction and other diseases, it is not suitable for running. For the elderly, jogging is a more suitable frequency.
2. Take a walk
Compared with running, the exercise intensity of walking is very low, and it is more suitable for the elderly. Although the exercise intensity of walking is low, it can also enhance cardiopulmonary function, prevent the occurrence of diseases such as myocardial infarction, and enhance the elasticity of blood vessels.
It is worth noting that walking needs to persist for a certain length of time, generally more than ten minutes is appropriate. Many middle-aged and elderly people are faced with overweight reasons. If they can continue to walk briskly for about 30-40 minutes every day, it will help control their weight. However, it needs to be controlled with diet.
In addition, walking after meals can also help the body improve metabolism, improve and prevent the symptoms of diabetes. However, walking after a meal requires more than 30 minutes after eating. Walking can also control the intensity by adjusting the slope. If a certain slope is increased, it can effectively exercise the muscles of the waist and legs.
Swimming is a relatively strong comprehensive exercise. Of course, in addition to improving cardiopulmonary function, it can also greatly improve the body's metabolic capacity, and to a certain extent can slow down aging.
As we all know, people who swim have larger lung capacity. At the same time, swimming can improve muscle endurance and enhance body coordination.
Badminton is a sport that needs to mobilize the muscles of the whole body. At the same time, it can exercise people's response ability, improve the excitement of nerves, and increase the coordination of limbs. However, it should be noted that warm-up activities are required before exercise to prevent muscle strain.
5. Table tennis
Compared with badminton, its strength is relatively low, but it can increase people's resilience, improve the excitability of the nervous system, and prevent Alzheimer's disease.
The above five kinds of exercise are relatively more suitable for middle-aged and elderly people, but no matter how healthy the exercise is, there must be a principle of moderation. If the elderly suffer from some underlying diseases, it is best to pay attention to choosing acceptable sports with lower intensity. Once the body feels uncomfortable, adjust the method immediately.
When exercising, the body's perception may not be timely. BP Smartwatch can monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen, and respiratory rate, letting you know immediately.
