Low Impact Exercise Benfits
Less Pain, Good Gain
Exercising offeres a variety of benefits for the body, helping your heart and even increasing
bone density. It can also be very strenuous depending on the activity,
your age, physical condition, and other variables. Tone
At HomeŽ offers low impact exercise equipment that helps minimize the
possibility of injury and pain during exercise.
Low impact exercise has grown in popularity with the aging baby boomer
generation and with increasing concerns over joint health. Low impact exercise
can range from yoga to elliptical-trainers to swimming.
So what is low impact? First, we'll explain high impact and low
impact will make more sense. High impact workouts involve activities such as running or
leaping, like jumping rope. It is anything where, at any time, at least
one foot is not in contact with the ground. Therefore, low impact
is when one foot is always in contact with the ground. This includes
walking and rollerblading.
Benefits of low impact exercise include:
- Improved flexibility
- Decreased pain during workouts
- Easier on the joints
- Increased strength
Some exercises such as swimming and cycling, are considered no impact exercises.
This term isn't as common as low impact, so these exercises are
often grouped in with the low impact exercise category.
