Take the Strength and Balance Challenge

    

        

 

 

Safety check:

  • Use a sturdy and stable chair for support
  • If you are feeling quite unsteady, use a fixed object such as a kitchen work surface or dining table
  • Wear supportive shoes and comfortable clothes
  • If any exercise causes pain in your joints or muscles stop, check you are doing it correctly and try it again
  • Feeling your muscles work or a slight muscle soreness the next day is normal
  • If pain persists, seek advice from a physiotherapist
  • It you experience chest pain, shortness of breath or dizziness STOP IMMEDIATELY and contract your GP or call 111 if you GP practice is closed
  • Try not to hold your breath – breath normally throughout
