Ergonomic Exercise At The Age Of 55 Years?
good afternoon, sorry to ask. Is it safe for someone over the age of 55 to do ergonomic exercise (intensity of exercise with moderate intensity) every day? or within 1 time a day for 2 consecutive days for example?

Sports that can be done by the elderly are non-aerobic sports with mild to moderate intensity. Basically not only activities such as walking, biking, swimming or yoga are said to be sports for the elderly. Gardening, playing with grandchildren and even having sex is basically a sport. The core of sports in the elderly is actively moving so that they are not long in a sitting or lying position.
Including moderate intensity ergonomic exercise that you ask, it's okay to do it. As long as it does not cause pain in certain joints, left chest pain radiates to the shoulders, arms to the left finger accompanied by cold sweat or shortness of breath accompanied by swelling of the legs.
To be able to exercise as needed (not excessive), the elderly need to recognize their abilities. If you feel fast breathing, difficulty speaking, want to rest and sweat out a lot, immediately finish the activity that is being done. This is a sign that his body is no longer able.
The duration of exercise that can be done is for 30 minutes which is done 5 times a week. This duration and frequency can be reduced if it causes fatigue. Do not forget to eat nutritious foods so that calories remain sufficient. And routinely check your health to the nearest doctor.
