Exercise Videos and Tips for Arthritis & Aging

Exercise Videos and Tips for Arthritis & Aging

Whether you're trying to control pain or weight, need to lower your blood pressure or just want to feel better, exercise is known to provide these and numerous other health benefits. If you have arthritis or other aches and pains associated with aging, exercise can be instrumental in decreasing joint paint, reducing joint stiffness, improving flexibility, increasing mobility and enhancing overall wellness.

When you have arthritis or other aches and pains that tend to happen as you age, the thought of exercising can be very intimidating. However, the rewards and benefits by doing certain exercises can pay off with huge benefits to your body and quality of life. To give you the encouragement you may need, we have gathered together some great exercise videos and tips to get you started. We've also created a Pinterest board with plenty more tips for exercising as you age or if you have arthritis.

Exercises for People with Hip and Knee Arthritis

A professional physical therapist gives us some non-weight-bearing exercises that can be beneficial for someone who has arthritis in the hip or knee areas. The first exercise is a straight-leg raise, which uses the quadricep muscles and hip flexors. Increasing the intensity is as easy as adding an ankle weight to this exercise. The second exercise we learn about is a bridge, where the gluteus maximus is lifted and works the quadriceps and hamstrings, as well as hip and back extensors. The last exercise demonstrated is a side leg raise, which strengthens the hip abductor. These three exercises target the hip and knee areas, while focusing on strengthening the muscles around the joint, reducing the shock absorption and taking stress off of the joints. Check out this Exercise for Arthritis & Aging: Hip & Knee Arthritis Exercises video for the full presentation of each exercise.

Top 10 Exercises for Osteoarthritis of the Knee&lt

Have osteoarthritis of the knee? The team at the Good Exercise Guide, a group of medical professionals who focus on providing treatment and advice for individuals who need exercise as part of their recovery, created this video. It contains 10 of the best exercises to help individuals with osteoarthritis of the knee. There isn’t any audio, but the visual really says it all as the demonstrator does each exercise. You can follow along in real time for each of these exercises:

  • Long Sitting Calf Stretch
  • Towel Assisted Knee Mobility
  • Short-Arc Quadriceps Exercise
  • Bridging Exercise: Stage 1
  • Prone Knee Bends
  • Sitting Hamstring Stretch
  • Medial Quadriceps Mini Lunge
  • Best Inner-Range Quads Exercise
  • Safe Squats
  • 1Double Heel Raise

Tips for Protecting Your Joints

As you do everyday things like bending or picking up a box, you want to ensure that you are protecting your joints, especially when you have arthritis. This video shows how you can avoid lingering pain by protecting your joints during upper and lower body exercises when you have arthritis. The professional physical therapist and his client demonstrate positioning your body properly, along with the body mechanics of joints, muscles and ligaments to squat or bend to pick up something off of the floor.

Holiday Workouts and Tips

Holiday Workouts and Tips

“Holiday workout” may seem like an oxymoron during this time of year when Halloween treats are still lurking around your house, you’re ready to gobble up some Thanksgiving turkey, and holiday parties and celebrations are right around the corner. If you don’t want to have a jiggly belly like jolly ol’ St. Nick, then we’ve got some holiday workout routines and tips to get you through. We’ve gathered together some rockin’ exercises and helpful hints for keeping your fitness goals on track throughout the holiday season. Plus, we’ve created a Pinterest board focusing on today's topic: Holiday Workouts and Tips.

The Secret to Sticking to Your Diet During the Holidays

How can you keep working toward your fitness goals throughout the holidays? Daniel and Kelly from Fitness Blender answer this question in a way that may surprise you. One of the major keys is to enjoy yourself, and stay away from the worry and guilt. The reality is that if you stick to your usual routine except for the few holidays, you should be fine to indulge on those days. It’s okay to splurge a little here and there, if you keep working out and eating clean the rest of the time. The real secret is to stay away from all of the treats coming into the workplace. If you do have some indulgences, don’t skip meals to try to counteract it. This won’t help at all in the long run. There’s a fun blooper section at the end of this video as well.

Helpful Holiday Hints and a Workout Too

Holiday parties and celebrations can wreak havoc on your healthful eating and workout habits. All of the sweet treats and indulgences that come with these events can be difficult to turn down, and being short on time can sabotage your workouts. Health and fitness consultant, Alycia Kluegl, provides some helpful holiday party tips and also shares a great workout. A few of her top tips are.

Don't got the party hungry. Limit alcoholic drinks. Socialize away from the food and bar.

Plus, the Power Three full-body workout she recommends, includes:

Jump Squats Push ups with Hip Extension Half Sit Ups

Pump up Your Holiday Workout

Vertical from Barstarzz leads us in a high intensity workout that's ideal for burning fat and building muscle. You can ban the bulge with this fast-paced workout that features:

High Knees Mountain Climbers Hardcore Burpees Pull ups Dips Push ups

The More the Merrier

We've put together a vast selection of exercises and tips to help you enjoy the holidays, while maintaining your fitness routine. Check out HGH.com's Holiday Workouts and Tips Pinterest board to stay motivated throughout the holiday season.
