Leg Exercise Isometrics focuses on the the legs are one of the largest muscles of the body and of particular interest for seniors. Many have problems with stiff hips, sore knees and ankles. The exercises below will strengthen and tone these areas and relieve many of these problems. Remember to keep it at you own pace and do what you feel comfortable with.
Leg Exercise Isometrics focuses on the strength and tone of the quadriceps (the front of the legs), the hamstrings (on the back of the legs) and the bum (glutes).
Each position should ideally be held for 30 seconds at the beginning (though shorter if you fatigue). It should be noted that your blood pressure can rise dramatically when performing these techniques so if you suffer form hyper tension or a heart condition check with your doctor first.
Breathing during isometrics is also very important. You should NEVER hold your breath during Leg Exercise Isometrics or any other body part for that matter. The best way to breath is by taking a deep breath prior to an exercise and while tensing the stomach slowly “hissing” it out like a flat tyre or a snake. This will cause extra tension and power allowing you to push harder and really get the best results.
