Another great video from
Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging to help us stay active at home.
“CCAA certified senior fitness instructor, Ros leads participants through a Latin-inspired, 30-minute cardiorespiratory workout that includes warm-up, higher-intensity, low-impact cardio, cool-down and stretching.”
Best Practices Ensure that the exercise space in your home is a safe environment for movement, for example, your space is free of tripping hazards such as cords and scatter rugs. Wear proper athletic footwear and comfortable clothing that allows you to move around freely. Exercise at a moderate- to vigorous-intensity level. You should feel like the exercise is challenging but not so difficult that you can’t talk. Aim for 10 to 30 minutes of cardiorespiratory exercise per day. Current recommendations state that older adults should perform 150 minutes of moderate-intensity cardiorespiratory exercise per week. Any amount of cardiorespiratory activity is beneficial for heart health. However, when you exercise for longer periods and more consistently the functional benefits are more likely to be maintained or improved.
