Best Exercises for Women Over 50

A guest blog post written by Jane Seymour, Actress and Crépe Erase® User.

Hello, ladies! It's Jane Seymour here, and let me tell you, age is just a number. As we gracefully navigate the golden years, staying active becomes more crucial than ever. Physical activity not only keeps our bodies strong but also plays a pivotal role in maintaining a positive mindset and overall well-being. Today, I want to share with you some of the best exercises for women over 50 that I've found beneficial on my own journey.


Gentle Yoga for Women’s Flexibility

Yoga is like a timeless friend that never fails to bring balance to both the body and mind. Engaging in gentle yoga poses can enhance flexibility, improve posture, and provide a sense of tranquility. Incorporate stretches, such as the cat-cow pose, downward dog, and seated twists, into your routine. It's a delightful way to start or end your day.

Strength Training for Bone Health

Ladies, it's time to lift those weights! Strength training is crucial for maintaining bone density and muscle mass. Include exercises that target major muscle groups, like squats, lunges, and bicep curls, using light to moderate weights. Remember, strength is not just about how much you can lift; it's about feeling empowered and strong in your own skin.

Cardiovascular Exercises for Women’s Heart Health

A healthy heart is a happy heart! Engage in cardiovascular exercises to boost your heart health and stamina. Brisk walking, cycling, swimming, and dancing are excellent choices. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio per week1, and don't be afraid to dance like no one's watching!


Balance and Stability Exercises

As we age, maintaining balance becomes increasingly important. Incorporate exercises that enhance stability, such as standing on one leg, heel-to-toe walking, or stability ball exercises. These activities not only prevent falls but also promote a strong connection between mind and body.

Mindful Meditation

Physical well-being is incomplete without nurturing our mental health. Mindful meditation is a powerful tool that promotes relaxation and reduces stress. Take a few moments each day to sit quietly, focus on your breath, and let go of any tension. It's a practice that keeps the mind agile and ready for whatever life throws our way.

Ladies, let's embrace our age with pride and vigor! Staying active is a gift we give to ourselves, promoting not only physical health but also mental and emotional well-being. The best exercises for women over 50 are those that bring joy, strength, and a sense of accomplishment. Remember, we're like fine wine – we only get better with time. So, let's keep moving, smiling, and living our best lives! Cheers to vitality at every age!
