I particularly like this article because working out the glutes is vital to staying strong.
Did you know that one way to predict potential falls in the elderly is to watch them sit & stand? If they use their hands to sit down or push with the arms to stand up, they are at extreme risk of a fall.
Keeping the legs strong is an everyday activity & wellness will follow the effort. So suck in the gut, tighten your core & practice sitting & standing without using your hands. Tomorrow your glutes may be a bit sore, but that only proves that your muscles needed the workout!
Note: While you are visiting Mom & Dad, Grandma & Grandpa, Uncle George & Aunt Ginny this Christmas season, pay attention to little things like how they sit & stand, how they manage the used-to-be simple tasks of daily living. Have a mental checklist of things to watch for regarding their mental & physical health as it relates to aging.
