Regular exercise is important for those with mobility issues, as it can help to boost circulation, ease swelling and strengthen muscles. Try these simple exercises at home to help maintain mobility. You can even try them from your chair.

This is the second in a series of exercise sets created by Oak Tree Mobility’s professional fitness instructor Dan. Dan has worked with us to devise these exercises, with the aim of helping people to exercise in a safe and controlled way.

Remember: Take care when undertaking any kind of physical activity. It is assumed that, while practicing these exercises, you will look after yourself and exercise within your own limits. Oak Tree Mobility cannot accept any liabilities for injuries obtained as a result of these exercises.

 

Biceps Curl

Hold a pair of light weights (filled cans will do) and stand with your feet hip-width apart.

Keeping your arms by your sides, slowly bend them until the weight in your hand reaches your shoulder.

Lower again slowly.

This can also be carried out while sitting down. Attempt three sets of five curls with each arm.

 

Sit to Stand

Sit on the edge of the chair, feet hip-width apart, leaning slightly forwards.

Stand up slowly, using your legs, not arms. Keep looking forwards, not down.

Stand upright before slowly sitting down, bottom first.

 

Chest Stretch

Sit upright and away from the back of the chair. Pull your shoulders back and down.Extend arms out to the side.

Gently push your chest forwards and up until you feel a stretch across your chest.

Hold for five to ten seconds and repeat five times.
