Effective exercises for fathers over 50 for better health
With age, joints and muscles lose function and flexibility if you don't get some effective exercise.
Therefore, parents over the age of fifty should take care of their health and never stop practicing effective exercise.
And this Father's Day, we leave you with the most important exercises that will get you the most fitness.
Benefits of exercise for fathers over 50
Getting 45 minutes of moderate exercise a few times a week is the best way to keep people over 50 mentally active.
The study was conducted by researchers at the Institute of Sports Research at the University of Canberra, Australia, and published their results, in the scientific "British Journal of Sports Medicine".
The results also proved that the skills of thought and memory are greatly improved by practicing regular physical exercises that benefit the heart and muscles, as the brain and body benefit alike in young people and the elderly.
The researchers added that exercise activates the movement of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the brain, and also stimulates the body to secrete a hormone that helps in the formation of new nerves.
They pointed out that "physical activity contributes to reducing the risk of various diseases, including type 2 diabetes and cancer, and limits the natural mental decline that affects us in middle age."
Effective exercises for fathers over 50
Here is a list of the best exercises that parents over fifty can do as mentioned on livestrong, with keenness to do warm-up and
stretching exercises before and after exercise, as well as consulting a specialist doctor before engaging in any sports activity.
Stand with the body straight, leave a small distance between the feet. Bring your body down, do not try to bend your back, and make it
tight. You can use a chair at first, when you go down to support your hand on it and straighten your back.
Push your right foot and bend it forward, keeping the second foot extended in the back so that the leg takes a right angle and takes the position of the lungs.
The third exercise
Place the palms of the hands flat on the floor, equal to the shoulders and in the same direction.
Raise the body using the arms, and in this case the weight of the body must be supported by the hands and feet so that the shape of the
body is in the form of a straight line from the head to the feet. Lower the object toward the ground, approaching it, but not touching it.
Lie on a bench inclined from 3 to 45 degrees. Keep your head toward the ceiling. Take some light weights in your hands and bend your
hands towards your shoulders, then raise them and extend them high parallel to your shoulders.
Stand straight with your feet at an appropriate distance. Bend your knees slightly and lean your torso forward, keeping your back
straight. Then, carry the weights under the chest and look at the floor. Keep your arms straight and raise the weights to your sides before returning to the first position in the exercise.
Stand straight and hold the weights in your hands, with your arms outward.
In the first movement, extend them completely to the side of the body. In the next movement, bend them and squeeze them, bringing them towards your shoulders.
