How often should a senior citizen exercise?
Physical Activity Recommendations for Americans state, “medium-intensity aerobic workouts, such as fast walking or dancing, should be performed at least 2.5 hours a week.” It’s recommended to do this three days a week. However, any amount is still better than nothing at all. You can work out your muscles by lifting weights and doing sit-ups two days per week. As part of your weekly workout, the Physical Activity Guidelines recommend combining several exercises. A few ideas include balance training, cardio, as well as muscle-building exercises.
