Seated exercise

Here are some chair exercises tailored for elderly individuals:

1. Seated Marches: Sit tall in a sturdy chair and march your legs up and down, lifting your knees as high as comfortable.

2. Seated Leg Extensions: While seated, straighten one leg out in front of you and hold for a few seconds before returning to the starting position. Alternate legs.

3. Seated Arm Circles: Extend your arms out to the sides at shoulder height and make small circles with your arms, first clockwise and then counterclockwise.

4. Seated Leg Lifts: Sit tall and extend one leg out in front of you, then lift it up a few inches off the ground. Hold for a few seconds before lowering. Alternate legs.

5. Seated Shoulder Rolls: Sit tall with your arms relaxed by your sides. Roll your shoulders forward in a circular motion, then reverse the direction.

6. Seated Toe Taps: Sit tall and lift your heels off the ground, tapping your toes on the floor. Repeat for several reps.

7. Seated Side Bends: Sit tall with your feet flat on the floor. Reach one arm up and over to the opposite side, stretching through your side body. Return to the center and repeat on the other side.

8. Seated Neck Stretches: Sit tall and gently tilt your head to one side, bringing your ear towards your shoulder. Hold for a few seconds before switching sides.

Remember to encourage proper breathing throughout the exercises and to start slowly, gradually increasing the intensity as tolerated.

Always consult with a healthcare professional before beginning any new exercise program, especially if you have any medical concerns or conditions.
