As you get older, regular exercise becomes, if anything, even more important if you want to stay PCOS healthy and self-reliant. It’s easy to understand why because exercise improves strength, balance, flexibility and endurance.
Always bear in mind that it’s never too early or too late to incorporate regular exercise into your Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome daily regime. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommend four types of exercises for older adults, which have multiple benefits, especially for the heart:
Strength exercises to build muscles and increase your metabolism, which helps to keep your PCOS weight and blood sugar in check.
Balance exercises to build leg muscles, which helps to prevent falls. According to the NIH, American hospitals have 300,000 admissions for broken hips each year, many of them seniors. Falling is often the cause of those fractures.
Stretching exercises can give you more freedom of movement, which will allow you to be more active. Stretching exercises alone, however, will not improve your endurance or strength.
Endurance exercises are any activity – walking, jogging, swimming, biking, even raking leaves – that increases your heart rate and breathing for an extended period of time. Build up your endurance gradually, starting with as little as 5 minutes of endurance activities at a time.
