  1. I’ll like to look younger daily. This routines are really good and helpful, but I don’t know how consistent I can be about it. Not withstanding, I’ll try my best to keep up.

    People say looking good is good business, but me and you know looking young forever, is the best business.

  2. Your site is just what I have been looking for! I will be hosting an exercise class three days a week for elderly (mostly) women (mostly) overweight (mostly). I am always on the lookout for safe, yet somewhat challenging exercises that we can do.

    A lot of my ladies cannot do pushups—even bent knee ones. Do you think doing wall pushups will be sufficient? I think some of them—as they get stronger—could advance to this stage, but not to start with. I think some of the exercises will need to be modified for my group, but for the most part, I think this is very much what I have been looking for. I also downloaded your book. I will share your website with my group so they can order it, as well.

    1. Good on you, Karin and the best of luck with your exercise classes. Your use of (mostly) indicates that there will be a variety of abilities.

      And it’s important to start with stuff that they can do, and do fairly easily, before progressing to more challenging exercises.

      If pushups are a challenge, start with angled ones, pushing up at 45 degrees against a balcony, railing or chair seat. Do one or two. When they can do 10, progress to 1 bent knee pushup and so on.

      Progress is important both from the point of view of increasing muscle strength and motivation.

      Rock on!

  3. Thank you for sharing the 10 videos of senior exercise routine.

    As we get older, it is important to have an exercise habit. It is difficult to cultivate the habit if we do not have a routine to start with.

    Your senior exercise routine is so helpful. I want to practice it everyday.

    1. Yes, as I’ve said before, it’s motivation that gets you started but habit that keeps you going.

      Acquire the habit to exercise daily and you’ll never look back.

Thank you so much for researching these routines and sharing it with all of us. Not just me, so many people are going to benefit from this routines.

  5. Hi Phil – thanks for sharing this useful article. Its great to have the videos to watch, really makes it clear how to perform the exercises correctly. I wouldn’t describe myself as senior just yet, but as I have arthritis, I need to take it steady when exercising. This routine is ideal for maintaining fitness on a daily basis, so I intend to get into the habit. All the best, Diane 

    1. That’s a great attitude, Diane.

      There are two things you need to do for arthritis.

      1. Take glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate capsules or caplets. Don’t expect overnight miracles, but keep taking them.

      2. Rotate the joint. If it’s hip, ride a bike.

      Trust me, I’m an expert. 74 years old and I do 100 km bike rides (hip, knee, ankle) and bench press 80 km (shoulders).

  6. Healthy body healthy mind . Twenty exercises adapted for seniors. The video shows the true form of body movement, breathing, intensity and all that should be addressed in each exercise. Exercises are adapted for everyone and progress can be corrected by the number of reps. Make a schedule until you get in your habit. Great job!
