Ready to rise? Let’s pay homage to the exercise for healthy aging. Then, take a seat again—that’s your first set.

A complete workout targets all major muscle groups, but if time’s tight, squats reign supreme. This classic move—lowering to seated, then standing—delivers maximum benefits.

Squats are seniors’ secret weapon. Think about it: every time you sit, stand, or get in and out of a car, you’re doing a squat. Mastering them enhances daily living.

Squats strengthen legs—from calves to glutes—and core muscles crucial for everyday activities. They combat couch-cushion fatigue and safeguard joints, promoting better balance and reducing the risk of falls. They’re essential for maintaining lower body strength and supporting knee and hip health.

Make squats your go-to move for staying strong and steady as the years roll by.
