Good Exercises To Keep Mobility

In addition to performing regular stretching routines, it’s important to get enough exercise that will promote healthy joints and muscles. The following easy exercises are specifically helpful for building healthy and relaxed muscles and joints.

Water-Based Exercises

Water-based exercises, like water aerobics, are a good full-body workout, and also a great way to strengthen your joints, including your hips. Water resistance works effectively as resistance, while still allowing you a full range of motion, and the natural buoyancy you experience helps reduce the strain on your joints(1).

Walking

Walking is one of the most basic forms of exercise, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important! Walking can help rebuild worn joint muscles and protect your joints from injury(2).
