Exercise is the cornerstone of great health

It is no surprise that exercise can have great benefits, this is true especially in seniors. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that older adults perform cardiovascular exercises that use large muscle groups for 20-60 minutes, 3-5 days a week. Strength training should be performed 2-3 days per week, with exercises that include all major muscle groups. Practice stretching at least two days each week (ideally 5-7 days per week) for all major muscle groups.
